Timing may thwart Trump's decision to quit Paris pact

Trump ran on getting the US out of the deal, he won, and he is doing what he said he would do. Of course, when the newly appointed Trump Administration declared their interest in withdrawing "for economic growth in America", the tech giant attempted to sway the decision.

The same poll found majority support for the Paris agreement in every USA state, amongst the general voting population.

The city council member, who said he uses a clothesline to dry his clothes, doesn't think climate change will kill the planet.

Alaska hasn't seen any official statewide policy initiatives on climate change since an effort under former Governor Sarah Palin, almost a decade ago.

"Republicans and Democrats alike recognize that the Paris Agreement is about so much more than climate change", Raimondo said. "That's the opposite of leadership".

The coalition plans to submit a plan to the United Nations that commits to greenhouse-gas limits set in the Paris Agreement, according to The New York Times.

Democratic governors of California, New York, and Washington also announced the creation of the United States Climate Alliance.

At his White House withdrawal announcement, Trump complained that the global agreement, signed by 197 countries during the previous Obama administration, was "unfair" to American workers that imposed "draconian" restrictions on the U.S. sovereignty and domestic economic activities.

"They may feel good about the statements they're making, but it has little to no impact on the global stage", Pyle said in a phone interview Wednesday. The Trump withdrawal is not going to happen tomorrow, and depending on a range of factors, including his own re-election, may not happen at all. The mayors of those cities, however, said they disagreed with Trump's decision.

Additionally, 82 USA mayors have also pledged to uphold the Paris Climate Agreement.

Last night as I watched Donald Trump pull out of the Paris Accord I found myself in a mix of emotions. "I'm not sure why Youngstown got thrown into the mix like it did yesterday".

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto also vowed to follow the "guidelines" of the Paris Agreement, although he gave no specifics. The decision dismays many people around the world, to be sure, just as other American decisions have dismayed numerous same people over the years.

"Donald Trump is really a representative of a world gone by, a world that is looking back in the rear-view mirror and does not see what is happening today", Hidalgo said.
