Phoenix Mayor Condemns Trump Decision To Back Out Of Paris Climate Agreement

02 Juin 2017

The statement said Trump thanked the four leaders for having "frank, substantive" discussions on the issue and reassured them that the USA remains committed to robust efforts to protect the environment. And during the campaign he would commonly say different groups of people were laughing at the United States. "Countries around the world must seize the opportunity to unleash this potential, invest in renewable energy that eliminates harmful carbon pollution, and build economies that are more resilient, inclusive and prosperous".

The South Australian Environment Minister, Ian Hunter, said that while Trump didn't accept the realities of climate change, many states and cities did. "We are convinced China will become the leading market for electro-mobility", said Volkswagen brand chief Herbert Diess at a recent Shanghai auto show. What we have is fuel cell manufacturing, as well as solar and wind potential.

President Donald Trump, at the White House, announces that the United States is withdrawing from the Paris climate accord.

Trump stated that the fund "is costing the United States a vast fortune", especially on top of preexisting foreign aid payments, and that it is unfair that the US should pay so much when other nations pay little or nothing. At their meeting last month, the pope gave Trump a signed copy of his 2015 encyclical letter that called for protecting the environment from the effects of climate change and backed scientific evidence that it is caused by human activity. Under the deal, former President Barack Obama had pledged to reduce United States emissions by 26-28 percent of 2005 levels by 2025.

"Wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again". Don Cheadle defended President Trump and chastised Kathy Griffin earlier this week for posting a gruesome photo of a bloody, decapitated head, and now he's back to chastising The Donald. "We are are going to clearly pursue our goals in Europe, but we also want to continue our strong role in helping, especially in the developing world".

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris", Trump, standing in the Rose Garden, said to applause from invited guests. "Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world", the CEO of electric auto maker Tesla Inc. tweeted shortly after Trump officially withdrew the us from the global climate pact.

"We will continue to lobby the Americans and the White House to show the leadership they have shown in the past on reducing CO2", he said.

The European Union's top climate change official, Miguel Arias Canente, said in a statement that Trump's decision to leave the Paris accord made it "a sad day for the global community", adding that the bloc "deeply regrets the unilateral decision".

"Dear planet, we're sorry", Murphy tweeted. Google will keep working hard for a cleaner, more prosperous future for all.

John Kerry, who was a secretary of state under Obama, also issued a forceful condemnation of Trump's decision in an interview with NBC News on Thursday.

The tech industry in particular has supported the Paris Agreement, and numerous big tech companies are now transitioning their giant, energy-guzzling data centers to using completely renewable energy.

"If Washington won't lead, Hartford needs to lead", Phelps said. Meanwhile, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of peer-reviewed studies proving climate change is real and that it poses a serious threat to human health-a fact to which 97 percent of scientific experts can attest. "We will double our efforts to fight climate change". The United States, exceeded only by China in greenhouse gas emissions, accounts for more than 15 percent of the worldwide total.

"The Paris Agreement will endure", it said in a statement issued by commissioner for climate action and energy Miguel Arias Canete.
