Putin says still chance to do global climate deal despite USA withdrawal

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday said that he thought there was still time to reach an agreement on the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change deal despite US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the worldwide climate policy. The governors urged other states to join the alliance as well.

Listen carefully to the agreement's supporters, and their real argument becomes clear: For them, staying in it increases the likelihood that the world's governments will take future steps to avert what they believe will be a climate catastrophe.

The second-term congresswoman said "just as President Obama overstepped by entering into this agreement without congressional approval, this decision by President Trump is also a mistake". Together, California, Washington, and NY represent one-fifth of the United States' GDP - creating an economy larger than most countries that are party to the Paris agreement. The Paris Agreement was absolutely in the best interest of the world and climate, but it was also in the best interest of Musk's businesses, and that automatically makes him an extremely flawed representative of the movement.

"It's tragic, it's a great betrayal of the trust of the presidency and of the leadership that is needed right now to deal with climate change".

"The president said yesterday (Thursday) that Paris represents a bad deal for this country", he told reporters at the White House. We can all do our part, even if Trump has decided that the USA isn't going to do theirs.

The Wildcats and Blue Hens first took to tic-tac-toe to kill time, drawing the board on a baseball and passing it between dugouts. DE started the inning with an infield single from Jordan Glover, who advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Calvin Scott.

"Today, we reaffirm, more than ever, our commitment to collective action for our climate and sustainable development, in particular for the most vulnerable".

Godby noted that the withdrawal from the agreement shouldn't come as a surprise in light of Trump's previous promises of putting "America first". "Really, it depends on what users of energy choose to do - not producers - because it's the users of energy that potentially generate CO2 [carbon dioxide] and natural gasses if they choose to", he said.

"We think the Paris Accord reflects the widest agreement of the worldwide community with regards to climate change, and parties should cherish this hard-won outcome", Hua Chunying, ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson said at the regular ministry briefing on Friday. "Even Europe is allowed to continue construction of coal plants". The terms of the Paris agreement prevent the United States from withdrawing from the pact for four years, which means that the final word on U.S. participation would not come before November 2020 - around the time of the next presidential election.

"Big business, big finance gets it", deMenocal said. When asked if the president has a long-term strategy for combating climate change, the two officials debated who should answer, with one murmuring to the other: "You go".
