Hope Trump will rethink Paris Climate Accord decision: Rajnath

Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google are among hundreds of USA businesses joining an effort to support the Paris climate agreement as part of a public campaign announced Monday.

Why has Trump's decision backfired so dramatically?

Trump objected to former president Obama committing $3bn to the Green Climate Fund without authorisation from Congress, and said the accord gave "countries like China a free pass for years to come" on emissions.

For those who have signed up, they joined mayors, governors and academics to declare that they will continue to support action meant to meet the requirements of the Paris Accord.

Perhaps Trump felt the need to throw red meat to his base.

The Trump administration's announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world's ability to avoid the most unsafe and costly effects of climate change.

Signed in the last week of the transfer window and given no time to work with the defensive unit in front of him, Bravo never recovered.

But the petty, peevish Trump had to get even. To give up on tackling climate change is to give up on the prospects for future generations all around the world. Numerous companies and politicians who signed up have been advocating for months for the U.S. to uphold its climate change commitments.

Almost 200 countries are part of the accord and have agreed to fight global warming by reducing carbon emissions.

The poll also showed 50 percent of Americans believe global temperatures will rise faster as a result of the USA withdrawal from the climate deal, and 64 percent think US relations with other countries will suffer.

We'll be talking more about the Paris Agreement and AD's role in meeting global climate-change targets at UK AD & Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2017, taking place on 5-6 July at the NEC in Birmingham. The business leaders and officials described Trump's move as "out of step with what is happening in the United States". "We've done a tremendous job compared to other countries, as far as cleaning things up", he says.

"Stopping climate change can only be achieved as part of a global and committed community". Today news emerged that the Acting US ambassador to China, David Rank, has resigned from his post in Beijing over the matter, reports CNN.

The initiative is an attempt to coordinate the widespread backlash to Mr Trump's withdrawal from the landmark environmental agreement.
