Climate Change, Trump And The Paris Climate Accord46:10

FIJI: Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, who will serve as president of United Nations climate talks in Germany later this year, said Trump's announcement was "deeply disappointing" but added, "This is a struggle that is far from over".

Led by Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Emmanuel Macron, they have branded Trump's decision as misguided and vowed to defend an accord they consider crucial to the future of the planet.

In an unusual move, France's foreign ministry on Friday issued a pointed fact-check of Trump's claims about the UN's Paris climate agreement.

Mr Trump announced the United States was leaving for economic reasons, saying the deal would cost American jobs.

The Paris accord is meant to limit the global rise in temperature attributed to emissions.

Qatar calls Arab moves to cut ties unjustified, baseless: Jazeera
Yemen's internationally recognized government followed regional allies in cutting ties with Qatar. Abu Dhabi-based airline Etihad said it was suspending flights to Qatar "until further notice".

Amid widespread global condemnation of the United States decision, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would "not judge" Mr Trump.

The small-but-growing handful of climate-conscious Republicans were never going to die on the hill that was the Paris climate agreement. This was the case with the fourth protocol, when the Americans did not implement the Kyoto agreement, but instead launched a powerful domestic program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per unit of GDP produced. "One man, one country will not change that".

America's withdrawal from the climate club risks adding another 0.3 C, according to Deon Terblance of the World Meteorological Organization's department for atmospheric research. "Its impacts are widespread, unprecedented, and disproportionately burdens to the poorest and most vulnerable".

Until Trump's decision yesterday, the United States and China were often viewed as the key players in global climate efforts - partially because the two countries are the world's top two polluters, and partially because, for more than a decade, both countries resisted climate action.

Mr Trump said he was fulfilling his "solemn duty to protect America and its citizens".

At the same time, the Russian president pointed out that "it was possible not to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because it is a framework document so the United States' obligations could have been changed".

This group includes 30 mayors, three governors, more than 100 businesses and more than 80 presidents of American universities.

"He thinks we have to negotiate better deals for this country", she said, "and that there's a balance between environmental protection and and economic growth". "Now if they could just s**t some rebar, we could build the wall!" "We must continue to lead the way". And throughout the world, leaders are committing to filling the gap that the U.S has created. A USA withdrawal had been on the cards, but there was hope among those backing the deal that Trump would change his mind at the eleventh hour. "By working at the local and regional level, communities can organize for powerful and lasting change, forcing elected officials to choose a side: that of Trump and his fossil fuel billionaire cabinet, or that of the people fighting for a stable climate and an economy that works for everyone".

"This is an all-hands-on-deck moment, and without the hands of the federal government, it takes the rest of us to spring into action", 350.org's Henn said.

Scientists say every fraction of a degree change in average temperatures can lead to noticeable swings in local weather patterns, though exact consequences are hard to predict.
