Hundreds of protesters have gathered in Washington, DC, to demonstrate against US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change.

"Climate change is real", he said.

Kenney is among 61 US mayors who announced that they would step up their respective cities' efforts to combat climate change and adopt the Paris climate agreement on a local scale. "With the president pulling out of the Paris climate agreement, L.A. will lead by committing to the goals of the accord - and will work closely with cities across America and the world to do the same". "It isolates the United States after we had united the world".

Cook joins a growing chorus of business and Silicon Valley executives panning the president's decision to pull the US out of the accord.

After Trump announced his decision on Thursday afternoon, the pushback from the tech industry was swift.

"It is truly shocking that the United States, once proud to have been a leader on multilateral issues, has withdrawn from the Paris Climate Agreement which was negotiated by over 190 world leaders, over decades, in the interests of all people and the planet", she said. "Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world".

"I have always advocated that Congress should have a transparent role in oversight and approval of these important matters, and just as President Obama overstepped by entering into this agreement without Congressional approval, this decision by President Trump is also a mistake", Ms. Stefanik said. The United States administration have shown their allegiance to the glory days of the past. We will never waver, because we know that future generations depend on us.

"It is disappointing. We would prefer the United States to remain part of the agreement."

The Global Times, an influential state-run tabloid, said in an editorial published on Thursday before Trump's announcement that China was not interested in discussions about the leadership of fighting climate change and would focus on its own promises to reduce emissions.

"We will succeed because we are fully committed, because wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again", said Macron, tweaking the "Make America great again" slogan promoted by Trump. "I think there is a consensus, not only in the environmental community, but elsewhere that the Paris agreement in and of itself will have a negligible impact on climate", the official said.
