Donald Trump Withdraws From Paris Climate Deal - Celebs React

Donald Trump Withdraws From Paris Climate Deal - Celebs React

Climate change is unstoppable.

Axios, Politico and the Associated Press reported that anonymous sources said Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt would work out details of the withdrawal from the agreement.

Responding to shouted questions from reporters in the Oval Office on Wednesday, Mr Trump said he had been hearing from people on both sides of the issue, but he declined to indicate whether he had made up his mind.

A formal announcement is expected at some point this week.

Trump is getting conflicting advice from various quarters of the administration.

Leaving the deal would fulfill a central campaign pledge, but would certainly anger global allies that spent years in hard negotiations that produced an accord to reduce carbon emissions.

Trump tweeted Saturday that he would make his "final decision" on whether to keep the U.S.in the climate agreement this week.

Trump promised during the 2016 presidential campaign that he would "cancel" the Paris deal within 100 days of his presidency to boost the country's oil and coal industries.

Given all that, it's worth walking through the arguments these Senate Republicans are making about why Trump should leave the Paris climate deal - and the argument environmentalists are making about why he should stay.

Trump has constantly claimed that there is no real evidence to prove that climate change exists, and has called it a "hoax". Juncker says, "This notion, 'I am Trump, I am American, America first and I am getting out, ' that is not going to happen".

He went on to explain that withdrawal could look like "Trump is turning his back on the world" by walking away from the spirit of global cooperation that the Paris accord created.

Investigators are focussing on a meeting Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner had last December with a Russian banker considered close to Vladimir Putin.

"Countries that are outside the Paris framework risk being left behind as the energy, food and transportation systems are transformed by new technologies", said the source.

The move could also lead to other nations weakening or stepping back from their pledges under the pact.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti reinforced his stance with a tweet earlier this month.

In a post on Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) on May 27, Trump said, "I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days".

President Trump, in a sharp reversal of Obama administration policy, is expected to announce the USA withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement despite an appeal by European leaders to stick with the global treaty that would limit the emission of greenhouse gases.

Under Trump, who once called climate change a "hoax", the country has resisted intense pressure from its partners to commit to respecting the global accord.

Trump had vowed during his 2016 presidential campaign to "cancel" the Paris deal within 100 days of becoming president as part of an effort to bolster USA oil and coal industries.
