China will take the lead as Trump scores climate change own

Paris agreement was signed in 2015 to fight rising global temperature by cutting down carbon emission.

While Trump is at his golf club, the "Pittsburgh, not Paris" rally has kicked off with "dozens" of Trump supporters who gathered to express their support for Trump's decision to pull out of the landmark Paris Agreement.

Wang Yao, vice-president of China's Green Finance Committee, said, "Whatever it brings to the USA, the key thing now is to deal with challenges left by the withdrawal of one of the world's largest emitters".

The United States under this accord had pledged to cut greenhouse emissions 26 to 28 per cent by 2025 and agreed to pay 3 billion dollar in aid for other poor and developing countries by 2020.

Trump said he chose to withdraw because the accord had given other countries an unfair advantage over U.S. industry and destroyed United States jobs.

Donald Trump, however, said that his administration would renegotiate either to re-enter the Paris accord or to have a new agreement "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers".

"Americans will honor and fulfill the Paris agreement by leading from the bottom up", he said, flying to the French capital to meet President Emmanuel Macron in an expression of solidarity.

Charlie Baker and Phil Scott, the Republican governors of MA and Vermont respectively, announced that their liberal northeastern states were joining the Climate Alliance and committed to the goals of the Paris agreement, as did their Democratic counterparts in CT and Rhode Island. Underlining India's commitment to protect nature, Prime Minister Modi said:"For the last 5000 years, even when I was not born, it has been the tradition in India to protect the environment". Bloomberg is the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change. Exploitation of nature is not acceptable to us.

Responding to President Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, the European Union is considering taking economic measures that could include halting trade talks, forging closer ties with Russian Federation, and imposing heavy carbon taxes on U.S. exports.

New York City is joined by several other American states and localities in vowing to uphold the previous American commitment to reach the goals laid out in the Paris agreements.

Several major USA corporations, captains of industry and business groups urged Trump to honor the endangered agreement, with oil super majors ExxonMobil and Chevron among those reiterating their support for the accords.
