U.S. states and businesses will still meet Paris targets — Michael Bloomberg

U.S. states and businesses will still meet Paris targets — Michael Bloomberg

Trump announced his decision to leave the accord Thursday. "And I hope you have your chance".

So again, it is Trump who is alone in his views, isolated and being left behind.

Trump carried Pennsylvania, but Pittsburgh itself was an island of blue in a sea of red.

"We just have to show consistent leadership and can't be "willy nilly" entering and exiting agreements", Stanton said.

The Trump administration's announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world's ability to avoid the most unsafe and costly effects of climate change. And major companies have said they will carry on cutting emissions regardless of what the current White House incumbent thinks.

EPA administrator Scott Pruitt spent a press briefing Friday dodging questions about whether President Trump believes in climate change.

"New York State is committed to meeting the standards set forth in the Paris Accord regardless of Washington's irresponsible actions", Cuomo said in a statement.

Britain's Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party Theresa May, reacts while on the general election campaign trail, in Doncaster, England, Friday June 2, 2017.

Bloomberg's offer to donate such a large sum of money to combat climate change is not entirely surprising. A global framework strengthens competitiveness for American businesses. "The great leaders that don't walk backward into the past but. charge forward into the future".

"We are deeply disappointed by the recent shift in climate policy".

Why is the USA paying other countries to reduce their emissions? Together, we will remain actively engaged with the worldwide community as part of the global effort to hold warming to under 2°C and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health.

There are fantastic opportunities around us. He said he was leaving the pact to help the people of Pittsburgh, not Paris, despite the fact that the Steel City has successfully shifted away from heavy manufacturing to a robust economy fueled by the tech, healthcare, and higher-learning sectors.

Just last week solar power hit a new record in the United Kingdom, meeting 24% of our electricity needs, whilst the price of building an offshore wind farm has fallen by 46% in the last 5 years, and 22% last year alone.

The Under Armour CEO, who serves on the president's American Manufacturing Council, came under fire last February after he praised Trump in a televised interview as "a real asset" to the business community.
