Holes in Trump's reasoning on climate pullout

He had campaigned on a pledge to exit the landmark accord that was one of the signature achievements of his predecessor Barack Obama, calling the agreement a "hoax".

"We're getting out. And we will start to renegotiate and we'll see if there's a better deal". He reminds President Covfefe that we only remember the great leaders, the leaders who "don't walk backwards into the past".

It will take several years before the world "will have a proper understanding of what the implications are" of the U.S. withdrawal, Terblanche said.

Reacting to the decision, former Irish president and United Nations high commissioner Mary Robinson said: "It is unconscionable that one of the world's largest greenhouse gas emitters would simply walk away from its responsibility to people both at home and overseas, in the interest of short- term fossil fuel profits".

Technology leaders have voiced their dismay and disapproval of Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris agreement.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May drew criticism for not signing the joint statement issued by France, Italy and Germany.

Ibec senior energy and environment executive Conor Minogue said Mr Trump's decision should not derail ongoing efforts to implement the agreement.

That idea was unceremoniously slapped down by furious allies in Europe, who joined figures from around the United States and the world in condemning the move.

Chevron spokeswoman Melissa Ritchie said her company "supports continuing with the Paris Agreement as it offers a first step towards a global framework", adding that the accord aligned with the company's own policy on carbon emissions.

Macron also chose to directly address the American people. It, however, said the president "reassured the leaders that America remains committed to the Transatlantic alliance and to robust efforts to protect the environment".

The French president also offered a new home for those "scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs [and] responsible citizens who were disappointed" by the US president's move to ditch the much-debated deal. Many economists have said the agreement would create as many jobs as it loses.

"Fact: Hillary Clinton received 80% of the vote in Pittsburgh".

The UN-led landmark agreement aimed to commit 195 avoid unsafe climate change before the average temperature rises by 2 degrees celsius.

The former Labour leader Ed Miliband said BBC Radio's World at One that May was being "weak and feeble and spineless" for not being willing to condemn the USA president.

Chai Qimin, an expert at the National Center for Climate Change Strategy at the National Development and Reform Commission, said Li's comments are in line with China's consistent stance on combating climate change.

Such messages are not only diplomatic tools aimed at the U.S., but also at investors.

"In Berlin, Greenpeace activists projected Trump's silhouette onto the side of the US embassy along with the words "#TotalLoser, so sad!"

Still, Dimon signalled he won't follow Tesla Inc's chief executive Elon Musk and Walt Disney's CEO Bob Iger in quitting the council, which provides the president with advice on everything from tax reforms to employment and business policies.

"Those who choose to remain on the outside will miss a historic opportunity for citizens, the planet and the economy", said Antonio Tajani, president of the European Parliament.

Miguel Arias Canete, the European Union's top climate change official, called Trump's decision "a sad day for the global community".
