UK's May urged to take tougher line against Trump on climate

Governors from four states - California, New York, Massachusetts and Washington - plan to uphold the Paris Agreement, the Golden State's governor said in a statement. Along with the U.S., India and China are among the world's greatest polluters. Not us. India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from developed countries. Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States.

China's annual steel output is nearly double the EU's total production and Western governments say Chinese steel exports have caused a global steel crisis.

"We haven't run new models overnight but the indications are that it could be in the worst case scenario in the order of 0.3 degrees Celsius", Terblanche told reporters in Geneva, referring to a possible rise over pre-industrial temperatures.

Stéphane Dujarric, the Spokesman for the Secretary-General, told the media at the UN Headquarters in NY, shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his country's withdrawal from the Agreement.

The move comes in response to US President Donald Trump's announcement on Thursday that the US will be withdrawing from the global climate pact.

This photo dated Thursday, June 1, 2017 shows the City Hall of Paris, France, illuminated in green following the announcement by US President Donald Trump that the United States will withdraw from the 2015 Paris accord. For doing so, the withdrawing member - in this case, the US - has to give a written notification, and the withdrawal will come into effect one year after the notification, at the earliest.

"We must also aim to collaborate with other nations in drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions", added Ms Jayapal.

Steve Bannon, White House chief strategist, was one of Pruitt's top allies in the West Wing as factions battled internally over the future of the Paris accords. He would follow the four-year rule to get out of it. He said the U.S. will begin negotiations to re-enter the Paris Agreement "on terms that are fair to the US". He is also a UN Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change.

"I absolutely disagree with the Administration on this issue, but we have a responsibility to engage our elected officials to work constructively and advocate for policies that improve people's lives and protect our environment", Dimon said in an emailed statement.

The President is choosing to put American jobs and businesses first, Pence said.

This ignorant decision doesn't just threaten the future of our children, it weakens America's place in the world.
