U.S. says withdrawing from Paris accord, unless terms change

China has until 2030 to begin reducing emissions under the Paris Agreement

The White House said Saturday it has not changed its position on the Paris climate accord and will withdraw from the agreement that President Trump has called unfair to the United States unless it can be re-negotiated.

Officials from Canada, China and the European Union have been accelerating their efforts to minimize the fallout from a potential USA withdrawal from the Paris agreement.

What's more, New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush said a White House spokesperson had denied the meeting account, "saying the position hasn't changed".

Almost 200 countries agreed in Paris in December 2015 to curb carbon dioxide emissions with the aim of limiting the rise in average global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2050, compared to preindustrial levels. The U.S.is expected to significantly reduce its ambition to curb greenhouse-gas emissions, which would be in line with Mr. Trump's goal of clinching "fairer terms", the official said.

In August, the US sent a notice to the United Nations Secretary-General stating its intention to withdraw.

Cuomo Heads To US Virgin Islands To Assess Irma Storm Damage
Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed an executive order barring state agencies from inquiring about someone's immigration status. Other units have traveled to Texas, Florida, Mississippi and Puerto Rico following hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The shift from President Donald Trump's decision in June to renegotiate the landmark accord or craft a new deal came during a meeting of more than 30 ministers led by Canada, China and the European Union in Montreal.

"And if we can, that's great, and if we can't, that's fine", Mr. Trump said in June.

Canadian environment minister Catherine McKenna said the participation of a US delegation in Montreal was a positive sign. The UN has been particularly opposed to the USA withdrawal, and Trump is likely to face pressure to change his mind on the deal while he is in NY.

"The key issue is how we should combine climate actions with economic growth, the protection of people and job creation", he added.
