Trump supporters revel in Paris exit

Peduto became just one of many city and state officials signalling that despite Trump's decision to leave the agreement that seeks to cut global C02 emissions, they would forge ahead with their own plans to combat climate change.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Several of these same cities have jointly signed onto former Mayor Bloomberg's new plan, which is a coalition of cities, states, and companies who plan on coordinating with the United Nations directly to come up with carbon emissions targets.

Jon Mitchell, the Democrat mayor of New Bedford, Massachusetts, said that several initiatives have always been underway in U.S. cities across the country.

World leaders from a number countries have reacted with disappointment to Trump's decision to withdraw from the agreement.

"It doesn't mean that we're not going to continue the discussion to export our innovation, to export our technology to the rest of the world, to demonstrate how we do it better here". The Paris Agreement was created to accommodate entire nations, not individual cities.

In an interview on CNN, Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto said of Trump, "What you did was not only bad for the economy of this country but also weakened America in this world".

"If we don't do anything, we might shoot over 5 degrees or more and that would be catastrophic", said John Reilly, the co-director of the program, adding that MIT's scientists had had no contact with the White House and were not offered a chance to explain their work.

Brown is about to begin a trip to China to discuss emissions-reduction policies with other leaders and has promised to fill the void left by the Trump administration.

Part of the accord includes provisions that give underdeveloped countries money from developed countries, like the USA, provided they are making an effort to switch to green energy.

Mr Trump said the 2015 Paris agreement would cost American jobs.

"Pittsburgh and other cities know that fighting climate change will not only save our planet, but save lives", Peduto said in a statement.

"I absolutely disagree with the administration on this issue, but we have a responsibility to engage our elected officials to work constructively and advocate for policies that improve people's lives and protect our environment", Dimon said in a statement. Only two other countries, Nicaragua and Syria, were not part of the deal. It will also help fulfil the Paris agreement reporting requirements so that the world can track the United States' progress. While researchers projected the U.S. will fail its climate goal, former Mayor Bloomberg said in a letter to the United Nations that he believes his coalition will help the USA achieve its reduction target.

Renewable energy prices will continue to fall as innovation continues and alternative forms of energy gain traction, he continued.
