Trump withdrawal from climate deal gets mixed response from US companies

And today, France, Germany and Italy issued a joint statement saying the Paris Agreement can not be renegotiated. He's said California's economy is proof that combating climate change isn't the economic deadweight Trump suggests.

Speaking from the White House Rose Garden on Thursday, Trump said he made a decision to withdraw from the Paris pact because it was unfair to US businesses and workers.

West Virginia Coal Association senior vice president Chris Hamilton said U.S. withdrawal from the Paris accord would build confidence in American. mining and industry even if it would not make major changes on the ground.

In his statement, Peduto also called Pittsburgh an example of why the Paris agreement is good the economy.

Many in the coalition are concerned about how the effects of climate change, including rising seas, could affect their coastal cities, agriculture and ecosystems.

Under the Paris agreement, nations agreed to cut greenhouse gas emissions to keep global temperature rises to "well below 2 degrees" compared to pre-industrial levels.

"If we are not using coal-fired energy; if we are not using natural gas, you are talking about staggering increases in utility prices", Johnson said.

Ms May raised the matter with Mr Trump as they gathered for a group photograph at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit. New details about Abedi emerged Wednesday, including that he had been known to intelligence services, Rudd told the BBC .

"I'm appalled that the President used my city to justify his unacceptable decision, as most other Pittsburghers are", he said. He criticized the pact as a job-killer that put the United States as an unfair advantage. "Tonight I wish to tell the United States that France believes in you. Wherever we live, wherever we are we all share the same responsibility, make our planet great again", Macron said. The key to the success of the Paris Agreement is for individual countries to implement policies that will achieve their nation's targets. President and chief executive of the World Resources Institute Andrew Steer, for instance, said in a statement that the "deeply misguided decision" would be "bad for the world, but even worse for the United States".

In his address on Thursday, however, Trump said the difference the Paris agreement would make is negligible, saying it would only slow global warming by a "tiny, tiny amount".

The withdrawal of the United States from the landmark Paris climate accord is an affront to the concerns of millions of Australian and their retirement savings, the country's peak superannuation body says.

"We believe that a global approach towards dealing with climate change is the best chance the worldwide community has at effectively addressing its effects".

"This action is totally contrary to their best interests: their health, security, food supply, jobs and future".

"If the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we'll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks." the mayors said.
