US revolts against Trump climate decision

The day after President Donald Trump announced the us will withdraw from the Paris Agreement, it seemed White House officials were tasked with keeping the president's actual stance on climate change frustratingly ambiguous.

The deal's transparency rules also reflect USA priorities, as countries including China, the world's biggest carbon polluter, grudgingly agreed to open up their emissions reporting to outside scrutiny. And even some people fearful of climate change thought Paris was an imperfect deal.

Bloomberg is a special United Nations envoy for mayors and local leaders seeking to meet the goals of the Paris agreement.

The previous night, Trump tweeted, very The Bachelor-esquely, "I will be announcing my decision on Paris Accord, Thursday at 3 PM in The White House Rose Garden".

Most importantly, developing nations abandoned their long-held notion that reducing greenhouse gas emissions was an obligation just for rich countries - the main reason that the George W. Bush administration refused to join the Kyoto deal.

"The moment Trump announced his Paris pull-out marked the divorce of the US-China climate relationship and the beginning of a reinvigorated partnership between China and the European Union", said Li Shuo, climate policy adviser at Greenpeace East Asia.

A Bloomberg spokesperson said the $15 million would cover the United States' share of the U.N. climate body's operating budget and it would come from Bloomberg Philanthropies and its partners, according to CNN.

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

Donald Trump just officially pulled the USA out of the Paris Climate Accord.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt repeatedly refused on Friday to answer direct yes-or-no questions as to whether President Trump still believes that climate change is a hoax or if he has accepted it as real. He said cities across the world are working in solidarity to curb climate change.

Belgium also said it supported the Paris climate agreement without reservations.

Trump's announcement sent the issue of climate change - and May's attempts to bolster the trans-Atlantic "special relationship" with the US - to the top of the agenda Friday in campaigning for Britain's June 8 election.
