India's green lobby slams Trump for exiting Paris deal

The government of one of Africa's largest economies said the decision damaged the rule of law and "trust between nations", adding that the US has a "moral obligation" to support poorer countries in the global effort against climate change. "This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States", Trump said.

Under the Paris accord, the US sent some $1 billion to the Green Climate Fund that is guided by the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change - the body that coordinates global climate policy.

"As a business leader concerned with creating American jobs, I disagree with the decision to exit the Paris Accord", Plank said in a statement issued Friday morning.

In announcing the nation's withdrawal from the accord Thursday, Trump argued that the climate agreement negotiated under President Barack Obama was unfair to USA workers.

The American Coal Council said more than 90 percent of USA coal plants are equipped with advanced emissions controls, and that advances in technology will lead to further improvement. The Paris deal "really put an extraordinary burden on the economy while allowing some countries around the world like China and India go a decade or more without any accountability for reducing C02 emissions", Pence said. When former President Barack Obama signed the pact in 2015, he pledged by 2025 to lower greenhouse gas emissions by 26 to 28 percent below their 2005 levels.

Anticipating a possible USA pullout, officials from China and the European Union - two of the world's major polluters - had prepared a declaration reaffirming their commitment to the 2015 Paris Agreement, which is widely considered a landmark deal for bringing together nearly all countries under a common goal.
