Trump supporters plan 'Pittsburgh Not Paris' rally in Washington

Our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before.

"It's both bad energy policy and, as equally important, bad for America's leadership in the world when you couple this with what he did not do overseas in supporting and reaffirming America's commitment on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and pulling out of the Asia-Pacific trade agreement". "We were hoping there would maybe be a last minute change of heart".

It refers, for example, to major companies such as Exxonmobil and Microsoft which "disagree" that the accord will "undermine" USA jobs, and quotes the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on the urgent need to fight carbon emissions.

Nobody at the White House was able to say on Friday whether President Donald Trump believes in climate change. Additionally, 83 mayors have signed the Climate Mayors Agreement, similarly with the goal of independently reducing carbon emissions. The good news is that a primary effect so far seems to be the galvanizing of leaders across the country to work together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet the USA pledge of reductions promised in 2015 when we had a real president in charge instead of the Commander-in-Tweet.

"I think the idea of anyone ever using a nuclear weapon anywhere in the world is utterly appalling and awful", Corbyn said.

Beyond economic concerns, the Post-ABC poll finds 55 percent saying Trump's decision will hurt USA leadership in the world, while 18 percent think it will help.

And in Pittsburgh, Peduto also issued an executive order reaffirming that the city's climate plans remain in line with the Paris Agreement. "There is no way". But most of the uncertainty arises from how the 194 other signatories of the Paris Agreement and the global economy will respond to Trump's decision.

He did not answer definitively, but said he would "do everything I can to ensure that any threat is actually dealt with earlier on by negotiations and by talks". Underlining India's commitment to protect nature, Prime Minister Modi said:"For the last 5000 years, even when I was not born, it has been the tradition in India to protect the environment". This is an opportunity for other countries to reaffirm their commitment to stopping climate change and creating renewable energy jobs. Exploitation of nature is not acceptable to us.

"He's stepping out and saying why: 'The people in Pittsburgh elected me, not the people in Paris, and I want to save jobs'".

The effort, which is being coordinated by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, follows President Donald Trump's announcement on Thursday that the United States would withdraw from the agreement, a landmark pact between 195 nations to adopt green energy sources, cut down on climate change emissions, and limit the rise of global temperatures.

"I'm appalled that the president used my city to justify his unacceptable decision, as most other Pittsburghers are", the mayor said in a statement.

The survey also finds broad skepticism toward Trump's argument that leaving the Paris agreement will benefit the USA economy.

"They will find in France a second homeland", Macron said.
