Tillerson says Trump wants to 'stay engaged' on climate change

"We have a history of pollution and industry, and we're working really hard as a city to move past that through our growing industries", said Isabella Sigado, a 21-year-old art history student at the University of Pittsburgh.

In response to Trump's withdrawal from the pact, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg also pledged to pay up to $15 million to support the United Nations agency that helps countries implement the agreement.

But Oliver argues that Trump's misguided move could have one small, positive effect.

Asking the White House whether President Donald Trump thinks climate change is real turns out to be a tough question. What does it mean for the deal itself and for climate change and the environment? "Maybe, just maybe, we can now motivate ourselves to do something out of our loathing of this one".

While China has moved quickly to step into the leadership role vacated by Trump, it's likely that Xi will be looking for more than just increased prestige and prominence in worldwide affairs.

France's new president, Emmanuel Macron, has led the global charge against the US decision to become one of just three countries - along with Syria and Nicaragua - not to abide by the Paris accord. The interview will be broadcast on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "We worship nature. It is in Indian ethos", she said, before concluding that she "clearly dismissed" Trump's accusation. Together, we will remain actively engaged with the worldwide community as part of the global effort to hold warming to well below 2°C and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health.

The world forged ahead today with the Paris climate deal after President Donald Trump pulled the USA out of the pact, triggering bitter condemnation from all corners of the globe.

The signatories to "We Are Still In" say they are "delivering concrete emissions reductions that will help meet America's emissions pledge under the Paris Agreement". He said he would consider re-entry if the USA could get a better deal.

But he said that the poorest nations, from Afghanistan to Zambia, had no actual plans to quit the Paris Agreement.

The evangelical environmental groups insisted that US withdrawal from the pact runs counter to messages in the Bible.

Experts also noted that despite all the theatrics surrounding Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement and efforts by his administration to undermine clean energy policies, individual states and cities still make their own decisions on a host of issues, including climate, and California is a prime example. In addition, nations - inspired by the actions of local and regional governments, along with businesses - came to recognize that fighting climate change brings significant economic and public health benefits.
