European leaders: climate change deal can't be renegotiated

European leaders: climate change deal can't be renegotiated

Did the president make the right decision on the climate agreement?

President Donald Trump declared Thursday he was pulling the US from the landmark Paris climate agreement, striking a major blow to worldwide efforts to combat global warming and distancing the country from its closest allies overseas. He also said he would try to negotiate a better deal on combating climate change which would be more beneficial to the United States.

"I tell you firmly tonight: We will not renegotiate a less ambitious accord". Or he could invoke a more dramatic option and choose to pull the USA out of both the Paris accord and the larger United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which the US ratified in 1992 under Republican President George H.W. Bush. "Make out planet great again".

Three Democratic governors said Thursday they won't let the United States back away from a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, despite President Donald Trump decision to withdraw from an global pact. They argue the US has ceded leadership on global warming to China.

As President Donald Trump prepared to withdraw the US from the Paris agreement on climate change, the media is rife with stories about how China pledged to fully implement its global warming pledge.

Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, said via Twitter, "The president's cynical political decision is not only bad for our environment but a total abdication of America's global leadership".

The company added that the service will be extended and include other credit card companies by September this year. At the same time, LG has also indicated that they plan to expand the service to other LG devices as well.

"All parties should work together to implement the Paris agreement", Xi said.

Bainimarama said the decision is a grave disappointment for places like his Pacific island nation and USA coastal cities like NY and Miami that are vulnerable to climate change.

Leaving the agreement is largely symbolic, Boykoff said.

"President Trump, in his America First stance, has made this call seemingly to play to those who feel that such agreements hurt Americans financially".

Chief executive Odd Arild Grefstad cited the growth of renewable energy in US states such as Texas, New York and California as signs that "the world has started the transition from fossil to a renewable economy".

President insisted the accord puts the U.S.at a great disadvantage, and will cost the US economy what he called a vast fortune. The Paris Agreement was signed by former President Barack Obama in September 2016.

But the Briton insists he has no intentions on seeking the number one status at Mercedes for the remaining 14 races of the season. When asked how he felt about the race after looking downbeat on the podium, Raikkonen said: "I don't know.

But Trump said the accord would "undermine our economy, hamstring our workers, weaken our sovereignty, impose unacceptable legal risk, and put us at a permanent disadvantage to the other countries of the world". "Fortunately, I am confident that leaders around the country will continue to think globally, act locally and ensure that the USA remains a strong partner in the fight against climate change".

John Sauven, executive director of Greenpeace UK, said: "The government that once launched the Apollo space programme and helped found the United Nations has today turned its back on science and global cooperation".

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, announced that he's quitting the president's business advisory councils because of the decision. She sat down with actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio, who gave her a copy of his climate-change documentary, "Before the Flood".

Obama said Trump's decision reflected "the absence of American leadership", but that he was confident that USA cities, states and businesses will fill the void by taking the lead on protecting the climate. The automaker highlighted its development of the Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle with 238 miles of range on a single charge and a net price of less than $30,000. California has been and is a leader in the fight against Climate Change and now is the ideal time to reassert its leadership position to continue to drive down greenhouse gas emission reductions while protecting citizens and jobs from undue cost pressures.

With this announcement, President Trump fulfills his campaign promises while seriously dampening global efforts to curb global warming. They took out a full-page ad in the New York Times Thursday, arguing that the agreement generates jobs and economic growth and warning that withdrawing could expose the U.S.to retaliatory measures.

While traveling overseas last week, Trump was repeatedly pressed to stay in the deal by European leaders and Pope Francis.
