Reaction To Trump Climate Accord Decision Depends On Party Affiliation

"Climate change is already impacting the military itself, how it operates, and the countries in which we have an interest where it can result in instability, which leads to violence, which leads to conflict and where we end up moving our young men and women overseas", said retired U.S. Army Brigadier Gen. Gerald Galloway, who is now a University of Maryland engineering professor.

"Even without the United States as a party, Paris still represents our best chance of avoiding severe and destabilising climate change".

"It protects the American taxpayer", said the statement from the lawmaker who represents Virginia Beach.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, too, said she was "disappointed" with Trump's his decision.

Since the election, administration officials have labored to explain that Trump does not intend to insulate the USA from the rest of the world or leave allies in a lurch.

US President Donald Trump refers to amounts of temperature change as he announces his decision to pull the US from the landmark Paris Climate Agreement.

"As incoming COP president, I reaffirm that I will do everything possible to continue to forge a grand coalition that will accelerate the momentum that has continued since the Paris Agreement", he said.

Following that remark, Pittsburgh mayor Bill Peduto responded on Twitter, saying the city will continue to follow the guidelines of the climate agreement.

"We are firmly convinced that the agreement can not be renegotiated", they added, referring to part of the Trump announcement which said Washington was open to negotiating a new agreement.

The pact, which went into force in November 2016, is considered the world's most comprehensive plan to date for fighting climate change. "They can do whatever they want in 13 years, but not us".

Abandoning the pact would isolate the US from a raft of worldwide allies who spent years negotiating the 2015 agreement to fight global warming and pollution by reducing carbon emissions in almost 200 nations. In exiting the pact, some fear the USA could trigger a domino effect among other countries.

Donald Trump backs probing Obama administration
He said at the time that he had concerns about the way some people were dealt with in the intelligence reports. Trump's actions are seen as diverting attention from the probes on members of his own administration.

Chief executive Odd Arild Grefstad cited the growth of renewable energy in US states such as Texas, New York and California as signs "the world has started the transition from fossil to a renewable economy".

Energy Secretary Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, cheered the decision for breaking with Obama administration energy policy.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain would continue to press the reduce unsafe emissions even if Trump pulls out.

Still, Bush made the broad and public case for US leadership in global cooperation, even as his policies in Iraq and Afghanistan frayed some American alliances.

CEOs from Apple, Facebook, and Google all urged President Trump to support the pact before his decision.

Following Trump's announcement, Tesla Motors and SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced he would leave both the president's Economic Advisory Council and Manufacturing Jobs Initiative.

Musk had threatened to do so prior to Trump's announcement.

"Climate change and what we need to do there can create jobs, not take them away".

She added: "The Paris Agreement is more important than just one country and with over 196 signatories it will continue to work towards a low carbon, sustainable future".

Before Trump even finished his full address, President Obama issued a statement opposing the withdrawal.

Scientists have warned failure to curb unsafe climate change will lead to sea level rises, more intense storms and flooding, more extreme droughts, water shortages and heatwaves as well as massive loss of wildlife and reduction in crop yields, potentially sparking conflict and mass migration.
