Climate deal pull-out may speed up damage to Trump property

The Paris Agreement, signed by 195 nations in December 2015, set the global goal to keep the planet from warming by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, a threshold that scientists say could keep the planet from launching into irreversible consequences like unpredictable super storms and crippling heat waves. During the four-day meeting, China launched a number of initiatives to advance clean energy and announced partnerships with other governments around the globe to fight climate change.

Many European leaders were shocked by Trump's behavior during the recent G7 summit, his lack of support for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and then his announcement about the Paris accord.

Trump's refusal to sign made the USA one of three countries in the world to reject the agreement.

He also gave voice to the swirling frustrations of experts. "If the President is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up". I still have a vivid memory of those exciting moments.

Stein believes that Trump has been making catastrophic decisions that will plunge the United States into a cesspool of bad relations internationally, creating a quagmire for the next administration and the country in general to recover from.

"We Are Still In" states: "It is imperative that the world know that in the USA, the actors that will provide the leadership necessary to meet our Paris commitment are found in city halls, state capitals, colleges and universities, investors and businesses".

As part of his announcement, President Trump vowed to "pursue a new deal that protects the environment, our companies, our citizens, and our country". He said that the US government will continue to "maintain engagement" with other countries despite the Paris accord pull-out. "China's commitment will never change, and our actions will never change".

"I will continue to do what I can in Congress to push back against the misguided and risky policies of this Administration", Schiff said, "and I look forward to working with both my colleagues in Congress and those in California to ensure that we protect our planet for future generations".

As of 2016 data, the US Climate Alliance's member states make up about 36% of the US population and 30.6% of the US GDP. When the world's largest oil and gas company falls in line to reduce climate change there is no turning back the clock, no matter what a US president does. "Together, we will remain actively engaged with the worldwide community as part of the global effort to hold warming to well below 2℃ and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health".
