World leaders push back after Trump withdraws from climate pact

"Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world", Musk wrote on Twitter.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg says he is ready to help foot the bill for the Paris Climate Agreement after President Trump announced his decision to pull the Unites States out of it.

"A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children", said the former United States president.

To recap, the Paris Agreement is a 195-nation treaty - now 194 - that sets standards for countries to reduce emissions.

"As 82 mayors representing 39 million Americans, we will adopt, honor and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement", says the statement on online publishing platform Medium.

As for the environmental impacts of the decision, Trump said he'd like to try to renegotiate some sort of continued relationship with the other nations involved in the agreement but "if we can't, that's fine".

"Sustainability has always been part of our DNA: it's integral to how we live and work and is essential to our environment", Plank said.

Instead, the Paris targets became "nationally determined", which allowed Obama to use his executive powers to adopt the deal on behalf of the United States, upsetting many Republicans who felt the deal should have gone to Congress.

It found that seven in 10 registered voters (69 per cent) said the United States should participate in the agreement, compared with only 13 per cent who said the U.S. should not.

"We have a lot of momentum in the continue the fight at the state and city level", said Heurtel. "The focus remained on whether Paris put us at a disadvantage, and in fact, it did, put us at an economic disadvantage", Pruitt said when asked whether President Donald Trump believes climate change is real and a threat to the U.S.
