Trump misstated our climate change data, MIT researchers say

President Trump may have pulled America out of the Paris Climate Agreement, but San Diego and other big cities will make sure most of the country lives up to that landmark agreement's goals. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, Jared Huffman of California, and Suzan DelBene of Washington, along with 18 other West Coast members of Congress, sent a letter Wednesday urging governors in their states to form a "green wall" to maintain climate leadership in the country. He is right that the world is united: almost 200 countries back the 2015 Paris deal, with only Syria, Nicaragua and now the USA opting out.

The World Meteorological Organization sought to quantify Trump's decision, estimating that United States withdrawal from the emissions-cutting accord could add 0.3°C to global temperatures by the end of the century in a worst-case scenario.

One of those mayors, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, said that New Yorkers are already experiencing the extreme effects of climate change, such as hotter summers, more powerful storms and rising seas. "This decision is an immoral assault on the public health, safety and security of everyone on this planet". But perhaps it is time to think about a simple product-label: "Made in and sourced from regions that support the Paris climate agreement".

"But rather than fatally undermine the Paris Agreement, it will likely cause other countries to reaffirm their firm commitment to the full implementation of the climate deal".

But Britain did not sign a joint statement by the leaders of Germany, France and Italy, who said they regretted Trump's decision and insisted that the accord can not be renegotiated. However, some major remaining signatories have expressed a commitment to increasing mitigation goals, and within the USA many states, cities and some of the country's largest companies are committed to mitigation irrespective of the U.S. participation in the agreement.

Elon Musk, chief executive of electric auto maker Tesla Inc. and aerospace firm SpaceX, said Thursday he was resigning from White House advisory councils after Trump's announcement.

On Friday, a host of USA states, cities, and companies vowed to live up to the terms of the deal.

Speaking to European business leaders alongside Li, Juncker said EU-China ties are underpinned by "a rules-based global system".

Trump's decision to withdraw from the PCA is not him putting "America first", it's him making America his last priority.

Trump Pulls US From Climate Accord, Dismaying Allies
The Paris agreement was designed in such a way that legally, no other country's action would be impacted by a withdrawal. Hundreds of high-profile businesses have spoken out in favour of the deal, including Apple, Google and Walmart.

Since the election, administration officials have labored to explain that Trump does not intend to insulate the USA from the rest of the world or leave allies in a lurch. "That set in motion an expected policy changes".

However, it remains unclear just how efficient cross-city and cross-state climate pacts will ultimately be in the face of a federal government determined to loosen restrictions on emissions and ramp up coal and natural gas production.

He also said technology developments in energy generation have the ability to produce better outcomes for consumers and the environment. "We make clear that if we want to limit warming to 2 °C, we need to do more and we need continued effort past 2030", said Erwan Monier, co-author of the study and principal research scientist at the university's department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences.

A plume of steam billows from the coal-fired Merrimack Station in Bow, N.H. Hand-wringing over the United States' exit fails to recognize that the Paris agreement is more of a symbolic vanity project for world diplomats than an actionable plan for addressing climate issues.

But mayors and governors across the country have a different take.
