U.S. withdrawal from Paris climate accord will have sweeping impacts, experts suggest

Irune Rengel | 05 Junio, 2017, 17:19

For a speech about whether the USA should remain a party to the Paris climate accord, Donald Trump's Rose Garden address on Thursday didn't have a whole lot of discussion about, you know, the climate.

PARIS, June 2 US cities, states and businesses can fulfil commitments made by the United States under the Paris climate change agreement even though the USA has withdrawn from the pact, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg said in Paris.

"We here in New York City are shocked at the development this week in Washington, D.C., to see the president of the United States pull out of the Paris accord and literally set this nation, and the whole globe, on the path of denial", Mr DeBlasio said. Only two other countries agree with us: Syria and Nicaragua.

"Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement", Bloomberg said in a statement.

Sunday weather: Mostly cloudy, with highs in the 60s
Friday night , expect a low of 67 with partly cloudy skies, according to the weather service. Lows through this period will be in the mid-60s with mostly clear conditions.

"I made the U.K.'s position clear to President Trump last week at the G-7 meeting, as did the other G-7 leaders, and I made the position clear to President Trump last night". "On the contrary. We in Germany, Europe and the world will combine our forces more resolutely than ever to address and successfully tackle challenges for humanity such as climate change". "I have not had an opportunity to have that discussion", White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters.

Bloomberg's donation will make up for the US's contribution to the UN's Climate Secretariat, which aids countries in implementing the agreement.

"I absolutely disagree with the administration on this issue, but we have a responsibility to engage our elected officials to work constructively and advocate for policies that improve people's lives and protect our environment", Dimon said.

May's Downing St. office would not say whether she had been asked to sign it.

This way, the Trump administration, heavily influenced by the fossil-fuel industry, will have less sway over the United Nations climate process, they said.

Mr Trump, who used Twitter throughout the day on Friday to retweet endorsements of his decision, was also facing a growing backlash domestically, with a number of states vowing to continue to abide by the principles of the Paris Agreement. "He made very clear yesterday what he doesn't believe, which is that the USA government should stay in an agreement that gives us too much of the financial burden", Conway said.

The Paris accord, reached by almost 200 countries in 2015, was meant to limit global warming to 2 degrees or less by 2100, mainly through country pledges to cut carbon dioxide and other emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.

Time and time again the answer was some variation of "I don't know", "I can't say" or "that's not relevant".
