Timing may thwart Trump's decision to quit Paris pact

President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate-change agreement is disappointing, but the world is marching inexorably towards a greener future with or without the United States, says Canada's environment minister.

The earliest possible date for America's official withdrawal from the climate-rescue Paris Agreement is just a day after the country's next presidential election. "His decision was no, and that was the extent of our discussions", he said.

Critics of the Paris accord argue that it hurts the economy but supporters say it will create jobs down the line.

"We have used that island for every significant military operation in Southwest Asia", said Titley, who now teaches at Pennsylvania State University. "We can do all of that at the same time". Trump said he's willing to renegotiate and re-enter the agreement when he believes it better serves the interests of Americans. The U.S., the world's second largest emitter of carbon, would have been required to reduce fossil fuel emissions almost 30 percent by 2025. "I don't want to normalize this extraordinary decision" to withdraw from the Paris agreement, he said. "If we can't, that's fine".

Trump, she said, is "playing on a past generation and a lost industry, and we can't bring it back".

He said he would notify the U.N. Secretary General and the climate change secretariat that US cities, states, businesses and others will aim to meet the United States' commitment to reducing emissions 26 percent below the 2005 levels by 2025.

In Trump's speech announcing the planned withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, the president said: "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris".
