Pence hits media circuit to defend Trump's Paris accord exit

Pence hits media circuit to defend Trump's Paris accord exit

United States President Donald Trump was left isolated on the world stage and embattled at home as leaders of other countries and corporate entities stood firmly against his decision to pull out of the Paris climate deal.

"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 in a statement.

French President Emmanuel Macron has responded to the USA decision to withdraw from the global climate accord with a new version of Donald Trump's campaign slogan "make America great again".

The latest polling suggests in withdrawing from global action on climate change, the president is out of sync with the thinking in his own country. This decision is an immoral assault on the public health, safety and security of everyone on this planet.

Real's remarkable Ronaldo again delivers when it matters most
According to Sky Sports, Juventus conceded more goals in the one match than they did in the entire competition leading up to it. The Italian simply could not come out on top against Ronaldo, whose brace moved him up to an incredible 600 career goals.

"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", Bloomberg said.

It is clear that whoever takes office in the United Kingdom on the 9th of June will be committed to tackling climate change. "Even though this administration keeps saying that climate action is somehow bad for the economy, most US companies don't agree with that assessment".

Plank drew widespread criticism in February for praising Trump's pro-business approach to the presidency and the company subsequently issued several clarifying statements, but Plank made his opposition to Trump's climate change ideas clear.

He added: 'As the mayor of Pittsburgh, I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris agreement for our people, our economy and future'.

Gov. Brown looks abroad for climate changes allies
His trip to China includes six days of meetings, conferences and public events related to the environment. "Maybe we don't put it right in the same cap-and-trade regime, maybe some parallel regime", he added.

The US president, who had pledged to quit the deal during last year's election campaign, said he will be seeking a better deal for US workers.

European leaders have said the Paris accord can not be renegotiated.

He said Trump's decision to pull out of the accord has worked as a mobilizing force in some American cities and states, such as California, Washington and NY states. The only other two countries are war-torn Syria and Nicaragua, which opposed the deal because it didn't go far enough to control global warming.

Standing alongside Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, EU Council President Donald Tusk said Friday that "We are convinced that yesterday's decision by the United States to leave the Paris agreement is a big mistake".
