United States climate withdrawal leaves door open for China in Pacific

The corporations include tech giants, like Google, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft, as well as businesses from a wide range of industries - including Target, Timberland, Campbell Soup, Burton Snowboards, breweries and health companies.

The firms who were noticeably absent were Oracle, IBM, and all the major telecommunications providers. "I want the world to know that the USA will meet its Paris commitments and that through partnerships among cities, states and businesses we will seek to remain part of the Paris agreement process".

Trump last week withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Agreement and said that India would get billions of dollars for meeting its commitment under the 2015 Paris Agreement along with China and gain a financial advantage over the US.

Almost 200 countries are part of the accord and have agreed to fight global warming by reducing carbon emissions.

California Governor Jerry Brown said on Thursday he will discuss merging carbon trading markets in his state and China when he travels to Asia later this week, a sign of the governor's ambition to influence global climate change policy, Reuters reported.

California, New York and Washington, which have formed their own alliance, represent more than one-fifth of U.S. gross domestic product and account for at least 10 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, their governors said.

"The Paris agreement is irreversible and will be implemented because it is our responsibility", Macron said following a meeting with Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg in Paris.

Someone in the Trump administration has finally come forward to shed some light on President Donald Trump's take on climate change. An enthusiasm gap may further raise the political cost of Mr Trump's decision: Democrats tend to rank environmental and climate issues far higher on their lists of concerns than Republicans do.

"The Paris climate accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries", Trump said. In a speech delivered in the White House Rose Garden, Mr Trump said that the pact would have imposed a heavy economic burden on America and intruded on its sovereignty. "I am eager to join so that Greensboro can work together with other cities throughout the country to strengthen local efforts for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting efforts for binding federal and global-level policymaking". "Through deeper cooperation on climate action, the European Union and China can propel the global clean energy transition", Trio said.

"In the USA, it is local and state governments, along with businesses, that are primarily responsible for the dramatic decrease in greenhouse gas emissions in recent years", the group wrote in an open letter to the global community. Inc. all signed, along with the presidents of New York University, Northeastern University, and the universities of Oregon, California and CT, among others.

Wendel Trio, director of the Climate Action Network Europe, called the EU-China statement a milestone in the history of global climate diplomacy.
