'Trump's climate claims on China, India false'

President of France Emmanuel Macron

In a statement, Exxon stressed that the accord included emissions-reduction pledges from China and India, developing countries that are major polluters.

"IBM believes we can make a constructive contribution by having a direct dialogue with the administration - as we do with governments around the world", a company spokeswoman said. The agreement was a hard-fought achievement and Trump's move has now put the U.S. at loggerheads with the 195 countries that joined the agreement to help ensure the protection of the Earth's environment for future generations.

Pruitt stood next to Trump on Thursday and applauded the announcement to pull out of the pact.

Obama signed on to the Paris deal by executive decree - not with Senate approval - and Trump is thus perfectly within his rights to rescind US participation in the same way.

"Being on the southeast coast of Florida, we're on the tip of the spear when it comes to climate change", Seiler said Friday.

The Democratic-led states of California, New York and Washington announced separately that they were forming a United States Climate Alliance committed to upholding Paris emissions commitments and urged others to climb on board.

It remains unclear how Bloomberg's newly formed group and the U.S. Conference of Mayors will work together, if at all.

Pittsburgh's mayor issued an executive order Friday committing the city to the accord by continuing efforts to end the use of landfills, reduce energy consumption by half and develop a fossil fuel-free fleet of city vehicles.

The final time she said, "You should ask him that". According to New Delhi-based think tank TERI director general Ajay Mathur, "The absence of United States leadership and financial support could delay actions to both reduce global emissions and to adapt to the adverse impacts of the climate change that has already occurred". "The future of our children and our planet depends on us", he concluded.

Bloomberg is also president of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, a coalition of 90 cities around the world that is pushing programmes to reduce carbon emissions and shore up urban defences against climate change.

Trump's decision, announced on Thursday, "was an affront to our faith in Christ, who calls us to love and be concerned for our neighbors around the world who are impacted by climate change", said Kyle Meyaard-Schaap, the national organizer and spokesman for Young Evangelicals for Climate Action.

China is the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, but also the world's largest investor in renewable energies. The Paris Agreement was created to accommodate entire nations, not individual cities. " about his influence in the White House". For years, Trump has been calling global warming a hoax, sometimes alleging that it was invented by China.

Trump has always been skeptical of climate change, despite vast scientific evidence showing that human activity has contributed to the problem, and has repeatedly suggested that it is a "hoax".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N), had supported staying in the pact.

It remains to be seen whether Musk omitted the sobering realization that his influence wasn't as great as he imagined it would be, or if it was because the United States leaving the Paris accord would have a direct impact on his own business selling electric cars.

In his first public comments on President Donald Trump's move, Tillerson called it a policy decision by the president.

A number of figures from USA industry expressed their dismay at Trump's move.
