USA states form Climate Alliance, vow to uphold Paris Agreement

Tim Cook slams decision to withdraw from climate deal says he tried to convince Trump otherwise

Anderson, who has multiple sclerosis, said that whatever Trump says about healthcare will matter to her much more than his thoughts on global temperatures. Trump's withdrawal, Oliver argues, isn't to protect US interests but his own ego. "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".

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

Singh, who was inaugurating a two-day national level conference on "Capacity Building of State Disaster Response Force-2017", said the step taken by U.S. is a cause of concern not just for India but also for other nations.

"President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation", Haley said Saturday, answering a central question in the wake of his decision to withdraw the country from the Paris climate accord. The author argues that global warming and climate change is a hoax spread by a certain section of the American society to increase government interference in markets and lives of people, and I turn increase taxes and cost of living.

Minnesota has had a climate change strategy since the administration of Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and Dayton said last week that the state will continue to pursue the plan, which has greenhouse gas reduction goals that exceed those in the Paris agreement. Just over 6 in 10 independents and 8 in 10 Democrats oppose Trump's action. "It's not only Russian Federation, it's also his business ties, how him and his family are profiting from this presidency".

At the same time as the other rallies Saturday, a few hundred Trump supporters gathered on the street in front of the White House to applaud the president's withdrawal from the Paris treaty - a move criticized around the world - and to demonstrate their backing for the Republican president.

That rally was dubbed "Pittsburgh, Not Paris" - a reference to the president's statement Thursday, in announcing his plan to withdraw from the global climate treaty, that "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris".

Its own video refers, for example, to major companies such as Exxonmobil and Microsoft which "disagree" that the accord will "undermine" United States jobs, and quotes the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on the urgent need to fight carbon emissions. "The United States will meet its commitment".

"Global leadership on climate change is at a critical juncture", he said.

In addition, it has led the way in promoting solar energy and electric cars and has the largest fleet of zero-emissions vehicles in the country.
