Trump to announce withdrawal from Paris climate deal US official

Disney gave this longer statement from Iger: "Protecting our planet and driving economic growth are critical to our future, and they aren't mutually exclusive".

White House talking points on the decision sent to Republican lawmakers Thursday and obtained by The Associated Press made similar arguments.

The Paris Agreement commits governments to hold the increase in average global temperature to 2 C above pre-industrial levels.

Trump's top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, however, said on television the withdrawal would help keep US energy markets competitive, allowing for a potential for coal. Long a skeptic of climate change-calling it a "hoax" propagated by the Chinese to suppress U.S. manufacturing-this is the latest, and perhaps most significant, action taken by Trump under his "America First" doctrine, calling the agreement unfair to American workers and the economic impacts of "draconian".

A top European Union official said the EU and China believe Trump made a grievous error.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has quit President Donald Trump's business advisory council over Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement.

Meanwhile, African nations are protesting Trump's decision.

Trump announced his decision to leave the accord Thursday.

Bronson Larsen had an RBI single in the 6th inning, while Chauncey drove home two more runs in the 7th inning to make it 6-1. "And Hayden Rogers was outstanding today". "We've said all year that he's really a bulldog".

The White House indicated it would follow the lengthy exit process outlined in the deal.

"The Paris agreement [will] remain irreversible and will be implemented not just by France but by all the other nations", he said, the two exceptions being Syria and Nicaragua.

Reality check: Do Trump's reasons for leaving the Paris climate accord add up?

Hours later German Chancellor Angela Merkel summoned reporters for an impromptu statement in which she called Trump's decision "extremely regrettable, and that's putting it very mildly". Now, Trump's inner circle is also starting to thin.

Brown was on his way to China overnight, and planned to lead a conference of states and other "sub-national" actors making voluntary commitments to cut greenhouse grasses. But he resigned in February, in the wake of Trump's initial executive order restricting travel from a number of Muslim-majority countries.

Peduto didn't stop there, tweeting repeatedly and giving interviews about why the Paris Agreement is good for everyone.

Mr. Trump rejected all that, and said the agreement would lead to a redistribution of American wealth to other countries and transfer of American jobs overseas.

The immediate impact of Trump's move could be largely symbolic. (Although the cities cannot technically join the agreement as they're not members of the United Nations, they can informally agree to its guidelines.) According to a statement from Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, who serves as the chair of C40, an worldwide coalition of mayors focused on climate action, the cities remain united in their goals. "This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States". America leads the way in shale gas, and is also developing wind and hydro power.
