China's Li: fighting climate change is 'global consensus'

If the administration weakens those regulations, the report says, passenger cars and small pickup trucks will add 22 more million metric tons of Carbon dioxide in 2025 than they would have otherwise taking away a little over 1 percent of the U.S.'s efforts for hitting the Paris 2025 goal.

Zinke was appearing at a news conference in Anchorage, Alaska with Sen. On the contrary, Trump has placed the money to be made in fossil fuels above all environmental goals, dismantling long-established rules and regulations in order to do so.

The Paris agreement was designed in such a way that legally, no other country's action would be impacted by a withdrawal. He says, "I've seen some different press releases back and forth, so before I make an opinion, I want to sit down and read it".

Russian Federation joined the chorus speaking out in favor of the climate accord.

Mr. Deese and others say the United States risks harming itself both economically and diplomatically with the move and is likely to see diplomatic repercussions down the road, as well as economic consequences as the rules around clean energy, get decided without USA involvement.

President Trump signaled last week that he may be wavering on whether or not to remove the USA from the 2015 agreement initiated and led by President Obama.

Trump claimed before taking office that climate change was a "hoax" created by China to hurt the USA economy, an assertion that stands in defiance of broad scientific consensus.

"The U.S. pulling out of Paris will not stop the fight against global warming, since nearly all other countries are committed to it", said Stefan Rahmstorf, a German climate researcher.

In an unprecedented step, the USA broke from the other six nations on Saturday in a joint statement issued at the Group of 7 summit, saying America is reviewing its policy.

Canada, the European Union, and China have said they will honour their commitments to the pact even if the United States withdraws.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said the Canadian government remains committed to the Paris Accord and will keep "marching on". He said even though "it looks like that attempt failed". the "law is the law".

Word of Trump's expected decision came a day after the president met with Pruitt.

Before being sworn into office, Trump told The New York Times in a November interview that he was looking at the climate accord "very closely" and that he has "an open mind to it".

Junker spoke Wednesday in Berlin. Aides have been deliberating on "caveats in the language", one official said.

Trump has not given any indication of which way he is leaning, saying he'd been "hearing from a lot of people, both ways".

The White House signalled that Trump was likely to decide on exiting the global pact - fulfilling one of his principal campaign pledges - though top aides were divided. South Africa's government calls the US pullout "an abdication of global responsibility".

Administration officials, from left, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, and Vice President Mike Pence, applaud as President Donal.

Under former President Barack Obama, the USA had agreed under the accord to reduce polluting emissions by about 1.6 billion tons by 2025.

India and Spain on Wednesday expressed their commitment to fighting climate change and reiterated their support for implementing the Kyoto and Paris accords.

The uncertain future of US involvement in the accord pushed even big oil companies like Shell and Exxon, as well as tech companies large and small, to make an appeal to the Trump administration not to back out of the agreement.

Rajoy and Modi agreed to boost bilateral cooperation in the field of combatting climate change.

The House Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, referred to it as "a stunning abdication of American leadership and a grave threat to our planet's future".

The decision will put the United States in league with Syria and Nicaragua as the world's only non-participants in the Paris Climate Agreement.

She's criticizing what she says are "destructive and short-sighted" decisions by the Trump administration. Longer term, the impact of a USA withdraw depends on how other countries and investors respond.
