Gov. Charlie Baker says MA will join US Climate Alliance

In fact, withdrawing from the accord will likely have the opposite effect on job creation.

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.

Add to this the fact that according to 2013 data per capita Carbon dioxide emission in the United States was 16.4 metric tonnes, whereas India's was just 1.6 metric tonnes.

Trump announced on Thursday that the USA, the world's second biggest greenhouse gas emitter, would immediately stop implementing the 195-nation agreement brokered by Barack Obama in 2015.

Together the states represent one-fifth of U.S GDP, and almost one-fifth of the US population, according to a statement.

"When Mr. Trump does something so outrageous to the science and to the reality to climate change we can't stand idly by".

Henn added that it's still technically possible to meet the climate goals agreed to by then-President Barack Obama, although that will be far more hard now.

Brown disagrees when Mr. Trump says going in that direction is pulling the US backwards and putting Americans at a disadvantage.

More worrisome than the long-term guesses could be the expected tariffs on US carbon emitters slapped on by other countries. "The United States has a seat at the table".

Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris accord, saying the its requirement to cut USA emission of carbon dioxide threatened millions of jobs and productivity.

The leaders of Germany, France and Italy issued a rare joint statement calling the Paris accord "irreversible" and stating it "cannot be renegotiated".

"Even though Trump has offered to negotiate the conditions of the agreement or join a completely new agreement, this course of events is quite unlikely", Pomerants explained. Trump has repeatedly called climate change a hoax and scoffs at the overwhelming body of scientific evidence that shows temperatures are rising. A global framework strengthens competitiveness for American businesses.

Our withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord is a forfeiture of that leadership and undermines our ability to shape the solutions to this global challenge.

"Eventually, the Trump administration will have to come around". May's office says she spoke to President Donald Trump after his announcement and "expressed her disappointment with the decision".

Speaking with Robert Mangino on the KDKA Afternoon News on Friday, the Vice President said the decision is what's right for the American people.

The U.S.is now in the company of Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries not participating in the first global effort to combat climate change.

Despite the weakness of the original deal, Trump's withdrawal is still devastating news. Fortunately, so many people aren't giving up in the fight against climate change despite this recent development, so you're definitely not alone.
