The colour changing for the Paris climate deal is also set to continue on Friday, with many countries including Australia, banding together to show their opposition to Trump's decision. "But the bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States", Trump said.

On Thursday, the White House had tweeted, "The Paris Accord is a bad deal for Americans", and linked to a video which said the agreement "undermines" USA competitiveness and jobs, was "badly negotiated" by former president Barack Obama and "accomplishes little". What is striking about the reaction to the Trump decision is how many business leaders are talking about the economic opportunity that global climate action brings, opportunities that U.S. could well miss out on.

He further said that that Russian Federation is yet to ratify the agreement and is waiting for the rules on resource allocation to be formed as part of the deal.

India is committed to the Paris Climate Agreement irrespective of what other nations decide, said the Centre said today, hours after President Donald Trump announced that the United States will pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. "I don't believe fighting reality is a good strategy - not for America, not for anybody".

First, the 0.2 degree-figure used in the talking point reflects the incremental impact of the Paris Agreement compared with the earlier Copenhagen agreement.

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris", he said.

Plank is one of several CEOs to speak out against Trump's decision.

It appears, he says, that the White House cherry picked the lowest number they could find among studies that explored the impact of the climate accord.

Speaking with MIT Technology Review on Thursday, he added, "This idea that the Paris agreement has a negligible impact on future climate change is certainly not what we conveyed and was not the conclusion of our analysis".

That is, that Trump is judged by different standards than previous USA presidents for doing the same things they've done.

"This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States, " Trump explained.

Fortune asked the White House whether the president believes global warming is a hoax and will update this post if we receive a response.
