In the communique, the USA added a footnote saying it's taking its own steps to reduce the country's carbon footprint.
The Agreement, which will be fully operational by 2020, is based on contributions determined by countries themselves.
The Trump National Doral Golf Club in Miami is also threatened, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the South Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, the Hill reported.
"Companies, states and local governments throughout the United States have already begun to fill the void left by this administration's actions, leading the way on clean-energy initiatives and reducing our carbon footprint", Polis wrote. Any progress dealing with climate change and global warming has now fallen to the states and the cities.
She said she made that clear to Scott Pruitt, administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, during a 20-minute private conversation on the sidelines of a meeting of G7 environment ministers in Italy on Sunday. "I commend these legislators for their dedication to the environment and join them in their commitment to combating climate change".
"Madame President, we will work to help your country continue to mark the beginning of our days".
Fortunately for millions and millions of us seniors, Trump said "no". The governors of these states have pledged to abide by the Paris agreement to reduce carbon emissions by between 26 and 28 percent from 2005 levels. During Obama's tenure, U.S. carbon emissions decreased while the economy strengthened, and both GDP and employment increased.

The Paris Agreement is a step targeted at transforming the global economy into a sustainable model, in light of a long-term goal for sustainable global prosperity and well-being.
Having said that, it's refreshing to have a President who understands his job as putting Americans, their need for jobs and aspirations for a better life for them and their children, first. And while the US withdrawal from Kyoto was widely seen as a death knell for that treaty, Trump's announcement on the Paris accord has appeared to galvanize the global community to continue their efforts.
The most important thing to remember is that although Trump can try to slow climate progress in the US, he's powerless to stop it.
Former secretary-general of the United Nations Ban Ki Moon, who has been working at Harvard this spring, stated on June 7 that he hoped the US would "return to the climate change process", but his hope is unlikely to prevail.
