Elon Musk Leaves President Trump's Advisory Council After Paris Agreement Exit

Russian President Vladimir Putin gives a speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum

"New York, Jun 5 Led by former New York mayor Bloomberg/118009" target=_blank Mike Bloomberg, almost 1,000 business and government leaders declared today their intent to honor the Paris climate accord, days after US President Donald Trump announced a US exit from the 190-plus nation pact.

A slight majority, 51 percent, think Trump's decision will do more to hurt worldwide efforts to address climate change, compared to just 11 percent who think it will help.

"Trump wrongly claimed that the Paris Agreement would allow China to "build hundreds of additional coal plants" and allow India to "double its coal production by 2020" but the United States "can't build the plants", said Robertson.

"President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of that equation", Haley said, according to The Guardian.

"Trump may have inadvertently done us a tiny favor this week, because the problem with climate change is that it's always felt so abstract, impersonal, and far off into the future".

Independents are much more pessimistic on these questions, with just over one-quarter (26 per cent) saying that leaving the agreement will help the economy and 33 per cent saying it will create more jobs than it costs. I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris. In his announcement on Thursday, Trump called the US the world leader of environmental protections, and said he would "begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction" and that he wants to "make a deal that's fair".

Italian Prime minister Paolo Gentiloni, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron reaffirmed their strongest commitment to swiftly implement the Paris accord and urged all the other partner countries "to spead up their action to combat climate change".

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who is charged with executing Trump's effort to expand drilling on federal land, told CNN he does not believe climate change is a hoax, but could not speak for the president. We are going to continue to be a leader in the environment.

The Post-ABC poll was conducted Friday to Sunday among a random national sample of 527 adults, including users of cellular and landline phones. The margin of sampling error for overall results is plus or minus five percentage points.
