61 mayors adopt Paris climate accord after US pulls out

Trump's climate doubts ignore U.S. military consensus on risks

France said it would work with USA states and cities - some of which have broken with Trump's decisions - to keep up the fight against climate change. "But the fight against climate change and all the research, innovation and technological progress it will bring will continue with or without the United States". "It's an important global agreement on climate change". The president has said flat out that climate change is "nonexistent" but also at different times hedged his answer, and said there could be some connection to human activity.

"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".

"I have always advocated that Congress should have a transparent role in oversight and approval of these important matters, and just as President Obama overstepped by entering into this agreement without Congressional approval, this decision by President Trump is also a mistake", Ms. Stefanik said.

"The regulations from the Paris agreement were disadvantaging our companies", she said, adding "I knew that as a governor". The European leaders, why do they want us to stay in?

But Beijing is not likely to take the lead on its own.

While government funding remains vital, Espinosa said, "this kind of support is crucial for the work of the Secretariat to assist nations in their efforts to implement their commitments under the Paris Climate Change Agreement". Beijing, however, has reaffirmed its commitment to meeting its targets under the Paris accord, recently cancelling construction of about 100 coal-fired power plants and investing billions in massive wind and solar projects. The U.S. only sources about 13 per cent of its electricity from renewable energy.

But administration officials clearly saw no benefit in clarifying.

"Everybody knows he isn't going to do that because he doesn't believe in it", Kerry continued.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a pastor's daughter who is usually intensely private about her faith, said the accord was needed "to preserve our Creation". You have provoked an unparalleled wave of support for Paris and determined resolve on climate action.

"Trump is the only world leader who denies climate change and he has made the United States a climate pariah, but the world will make progress despite them".

"[The US] has detonated this awesome wave of support and deepened commitment, it's just fantastic", Figueres said.

The numbner two USA vehicle maker declined to say if it would stay on the president's council. But she is happy with how worldwide leaders have reacted to the move in Washington.

The withdrawal from the world's pre-eminent climate control agreement - signed in Paris in 2015 by 197 countries - met with widespread and growing disdain from American businesses, Xinhua reported.

In a speech announcing the withdrawal (and potential renegotiation), the president said that the decision was made in order to "fulfil my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens".
