Vice President Responds To Mayor Peduto's Commitment To Paris Climate Accord

According to Agence France Presse, the money would go toward supporting the operations of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change Executive Secretariat, which is the Paris agreement's coordinating agency.

"With Trump we were at best only going to have America's name on the agreement", he told AFP. A letter on behalf of Apple, Google, Unilever and more, outlined the reasons why the USA must remain committed to the climate agreement, arguing it will strengthen competitiveness, create jobs, and reduce business risks.

"Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement is bad for the environment, bad for the economy, and it puts our children's future at risk", Zuckerberg wrote. "Finally, leadership would also involve training today's coal miner to build and install clean energy such as solar and wind, not sending them backwards into the last two centuries".

Democrats may not be able to stop President Donald Trump from pulling the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, especially with Republicans controlling the House and Senate - but Democratic mayors have taken a leading role in opposing the move.

The group-which to date includes three governors, 30 mayors, more than 90 university presidents, and over 100 businesses-is preparing to submit a plan to the United Nations pledging to ensure that the US remains a global leader in reducing emissions.

Put simply, the US decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement will have impacts on the global climate that a future USA administration will not be able to undo. The governors of up to 10 states and dozens of mayors publicly criticised the U.S. president's decision to pull out of the accord, which was signed by 197 countries in 2015 and has been ratified by 147.

Through crestfallen, Trudeau reiterated to the president "Canada's continued commitment to working internationally to address climate change". Trump railed against how "many [countries] will never pay one dime", but many countries will never poison the planet as much as we have, either.

The TERI DG said that despite United States pullout, action on climate change would continue, but would be delayed.

Hours later German Chancellor Angela Merkel summoned reporters for an impromptu statement in which she called Trump's decision "extremely regrettable and that's putting it very mildly". "I think it's a privileged opportunity". "His decision was no, and that was the extent of our discussions", he said.

The Paris Agreement commits governments to hold the increase in average global temperature to 2 C above pre-industrial levels.
