Trump pulls United States out of Paris climate agreement

The Paris Agreement, reached in 2015, aims to curb climate change before the global average temperature reaches a point that scientists say would have catastrophic and irreversible effects on the planet. The EU is planning to reinforce existing partner relations and find new allies from among the world's biggest economies as well as countries most vulnerable to climate change to vigorously move forward with implementing the Paris Agreement.

And if the president wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we'll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks.

"I call on them, come and work here with us to work together on concrete solutions for our climate, our environment", he said.

The Earth is likely to reach more risky levels of warming sooner as a result of the Trump's decision because America's pollution contributes so much to rising temperatures, scientists said. A letter on behalf of Apple, Google, Unilever and more, outlined the reasons why the US must remain committed to the climate agreement, arguing it will strengthen competitiveness, create jobs, and reduce business risks.

According to Putin, it is possible that Trump could agree to new terms for US participation "within the framework" of the current agreement, or he could strike an entirely new deal. "Americans will honor and fulfill the Paris Agreement by leading from the bottom up - and there isn't anything Washington can do to stop us". The United States, exceeded only by China in greenhouse gas emissions, accounts for more than 15 percent of the worldwide total.
