Trump announced Thursday that the United States was withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, a 2015 accord between almost every nation to reduce carbon emissions most scientists agree alter the planet's climate.

"I want the world to know that the USA will meet its Paris commitments and that through partnerships among cities, states and businesses we will seek to remain part of the Paris agreement process", Bloomberg said.

He made very clear yesterday what he doesn't believe, which is that the USA government should stay in an agreement that gives us too much of the financial burden, too much risks to these industries where the coalminers, people who work in cement and paper, people who he looked in the eye...

"I made the U.K.'s position clear to President Trump last week at the G-7 meeting, as did the other G-7 leaders, and I made the position clear to President Trump last night". India is a responsible nation with regard to climate change.We can milk the nature.

In the statement, Plank said it is "our collective responsibility" to protect the earth.

"It is imperative to avoid undermining global agreements such as the Paris agreement, which is a global symbol of joint cooperation and has strengthened multilateralism".

Trump also faced a backlash at home where Democratic state governors, city mayors and powerful companies drew up plans to meet the pact's greenhouse gas emission targets.

During a visit last month to Saudia Arabia and Israel, Trump urged moderate Arab states and Israel to unite against the common foe of Iran.

However, the rest of the signatories pledged to defend the agreement and not to backtrack in the fight against climate change.

In a background briefing with reporters Thursday afternoon, White House advisers repeatedly declined to answer questions about whether Trump thinks climate change is real.

Donald Trump, however, said that his administration would renegotiate either to re-enter the Paris accord or to have a new agreement "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers".

"Do you know if President Trump still believes that climate change is a hoax?". We want to be there, we want to be providing solutions for the world.

"We are leading with action, not words", Pruitt added. "We are continuing work toward achieving the goals of European Union climate policy and will follow the aims of the Paris Agreement", he affirmed.
