Trump was 'wrong' to leave climate change deal: United Kingdom minister

The US noted that it did not join the sections of the statement on climate action and climate aid.

Italy's Minister of the Environment Gian Luca Galletti (C) attends a summit of Environment ministers from the G7 group of industrialised nations in Bologna, Italy, June11, 2017. It was a short time later that President Trump pulled the US out of the agreement.

Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom signed the communiqué.

Gove, who has himself come under criticism for voting against measures to prevent climate change, said the Paris Accord was "a significant step forward". Continuing the dialogue is key, Galletti said.

Hulot said United States commitments on other environmental issues, notably cleaning up the world's plastic-choked oceans, were not in doubt, and the commitment of industry players to green technologies and renewable energy would not be affected by Trump's position.

Global emissions stalled in 2016 for the third year in a row, but they didn't do so because of the Paris climate agreement (signed in December 2015).

Trump said this month he would withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, drawing condemnation from other world leaders.

The coalition is committed to achieving the goal of reducing GHG emissions by 26-28% from 2005 levels by 2025, a goal enshrined in the US Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) submitted under the Paris Agreement, and to meeting or exceeding the targets of the federal Clean Power Plan.

It also specifically noted President Donald Trump's decision to unilaterally pull out of the landmark Paris agreement on climate change.

Trudeau issued a statement after U.S. President Donald Trump announced the United States' withdrawal from the global climate agreement earlier this month, saying he was "deeply disappointed" in the decision and that Canada's commitment to fight climate change is "unwavering". In a speech last week, Trump called the decision "a reassertion of America's sovereignty", saying he was "elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris".

"As their statement makes clear, there is no appetite to "renegotiate" the Paris agreement, and the drive towards a global economy based on clean, renewable energy will continue full speed ahead despite the efforts of President Trump and Scott Pruitt to slow it down". "Good, we're for that", Brown said in a speech closing out his trip at Tsinghua University in Beijing on 8 June.

The momentum of existing climate-change efforts and the availability natural gas, wind and solar power mean those loyal to the Paris accord in the USA will have an easier time, with emissions expected to fall overall for years, said Robert Perciasepe with the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, who worked with Bloomberg's group on the climate pledge.

"The world, through the Paris Accord, has made the commitment to make the turn to a decarbonised future".

Erik Solheim, head of the UN Environment Programme, said yestreday that the six other G7 countries shared an "absolute determination" to keep climate action on track "whatever happens in the White House".
