If your state isn't a member yet, call up your governor and let them know this is important to you.

However, Mrs May came under fire for not adding her name to a joint statement issued by the leaders of France, Germany and Italy to say that the Paris climate accord can not be renegotiated as President Trump has demanded. Our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before. "You are unqualified. You are a bigoted half wit asshole reality star that has made America a joke to the rest of the world".

Bloomberg's charitable organization, Bloomberg Philanthropies, announced Thursday that it would finance the U.S.' share of the administrative costs of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the mechanism required to keep the almost 200-member nation deal upright. "It is time for all of us to stand up, organize, fight back, and channel our energy into grassroots political action".

In his announcement, Trump said the Paris deal would add too many constraints to U.S. businesses, especially in energy.

In 2006, the town of Chapel Hill and UNC-Chapel Hill became the first town-gown partners in the country to commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent by 2050 with the Community Carbon Reduction (CRed) pledge.

Trump cited a study that said the Paris agreement "could cost America as much as 2.7-million lost jobs by 2025".

His comments come after Trump last week rejected the Paris accord, calling it "unfair at the highest level to the United States".

The EPA director said the Obama administration fell short of the targets set by the Paris agreement. "There is no way".

"Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement".

Mrs May continued that the Paris Agreement provides "the right global framework for protecting the prosperity and security of future generations, while keeping energy affordable and secure for our citizens and businesses", a Downing Street spokesperson said. I think they applauded because they knew it would put this country at a disadvantage.

In its response, the foreign ministry tweeted, "We've seen the @White- House video about the #ParisAccord". Exploitation of nature is not acceptable to us.

Gov. Charlie Baker and Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, two of the four Republican governors in New England, announced late Friday afternoon that they would join a coalition of states committed to fulfilling the tenets of the Paris Climate Agreement despite President Trump's decision this week to withdraw from the worldwide pact. The agreement, negotiated by 195 United Nations countries, was ratified in order to slow the damage being done to the environment. When asked, Spicer said "I have not had an opportunity to have that discussion" with Trump.
