Indian President Takes on Donald Trump Over Paris Climate Deal

U.S. President Donald Trump has officially announced that the country is forfeiting from the historic Paris Climate Deal.

Study co-author Erwan Monier, a lead researcher at the joint program, said that the school's climate researchers "certainly do not support the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris agreement".

People can have opposing views about the value of participating in the Paris agreement, which is voluntary and has no binding targets or timelines for reducing industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change.

Quebec's Environment Minister David Heurtel agreed, saying the Paris Accord will not die simply because of one country pulling out.

Supporters of the decision in US believe pulling out of the pact will save jobs, unburden industries, and save money.

China's Foreign Ministry on Friday said it is paying close attention to the United States' decision to quit the Paris climate agreement, calling on all parties to cherish and safeguard the hard-earned accord. "The fight against climate change, and all the research, innovation and technological progress it will bring, will continue, with or without the United States".

Together the states represent one-fifth of U.S GDP, and almost one-fifth of the USA population, according to a statement.

Trump's "announcement has galvanised us rather than weakened us, and this vacuum will be filled by new broad committed leadership", Canete said.

The European Commission, the EU executive, described the U.S. pullout from the pact to fight the dangers of global warming and signed by more than 190 countries, as a sad day for the global community, but said it would seek new alliances. Although the United Kingdom did not sign a joint statement issued by the French, German and Italian leaders late on Thursday, Prime Minister Theresa May is understood to have expressed her disappointment in a phone call with the usa president.

Trump announced his plans to withdraw from the deal Thursday, arguing it would forward his job creation campaign promise.

"Five years ago, the idea of either China or India stopping - or even slowing - coal use was considered an insurmountable hurdle", Climate Analytics physicist, Bill Hare, said. "We need action", Bloomberg said.

"I am not very happy with the idea that we might now work even more closely with China than we are able to do with the Americans", he said just hours before Trump was expected to announce his decision to pull the United States out of the 2015 Paris accord on climate change.

The United States joins Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries in a United Nations climate group not signed on to the climate agreement.

Trump also failed to acknowledge that India's per capita carbon emissions are a mere fraction of the US's, or almost 300 million people in India still live without reliable access to electricity, while misstating that India's participation in the accords was contingent on receiving "billions and billions and billions" of dollars in aid.

The colour changing for the Paris climate deal is also set to continue on Friday, with many countries including Australia, banding together to show their opposition to Trump's decision.
