Greenpeace in Spain protests Trump climate decision

He said, "We can not cede leadership on this issue to other countries". "The way of thinking was that it would be our common interest to have this agreement and to implement it", Ambassador of the European Union to India, Tomasz Kozlowski said.

The agreement, a partially legally-binding commitment, proposed to free the world of fossil fuels by the end of the century. Asked about America's decision to leave the 2015 climate accord, he said, "The decision by the USA to pull out of the agreement was negative". "But, we are happy that India has declared its commitment to the Paris agreement", he said. Withdrawing from the Paris accord effectively cedes this leadership to other countries.

British billionaire Richard Branson on Thursday called President Donald Trump very "naive" to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, saying he failed to recognize that clean energy is cheaper than coal and oil and is going to create "massively more jobs". Formally, it may take more than three years for the U.S.to exit, but Trump said last week that his administration will stop all work on the accord immediately.

"The legislature finds that not only is climate change real, but it is the overriding challenge of the 21st century and one of the priority issues of the senate", reads one of the bills.

The City of Iowa City has committed to reducing the effects of climate change in the past, with Throgmorton signing the Compact of Mayors, a global coalition of city leaders addressing climate change, in February of 2016.

The Paris agreement commits the U.S. and other countries to keep rising global temperatures "well below" 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and "endeavour to limit" them to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

We Are Still In includes a grand total of 1,219 governors, mayors, businesses, investors, and colleges and universities from across the U.S. or with significant operations in the U.S., representing the broadest cross section of the American economy yet assembled in pursuit of climate action - all in an effort to help ensure the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing carbon emissions.
