Trump promoted his announcement Wednesday night on Twitter, after a day in which US allies around the world sounded alarms about the likely consequences of a USA withdrawal. Like the other officials, that person was not authorized to describe the private discussions by name and spoke only on condition of anonymity.
Almost 200 nations agreed in 2015 to voluntarily reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
His appeal suggested that if the United States, the world's biggest carbon emitter after China, were to quit the deal, the onus would be on other key players like China, India and the European Union to do more to fight global warming.
Under the agreement, the US had agreed to reduce the country's pollution emissions to 26 percent to 28 percent of 2005 levels by 2025 - about 1.6 billion tons.
Supporters of the climate pact are concerned that a United States exit could lead other nations to weaken their commitments or also withdraw, softening an accord that scientists have said is critical to avoiding the worst impacts of climate change.
As of 2015, emissions were 12 per cent lower, according to the US Energy Information Administration.
"If President Trump reads the Pope's writings, I'm confident he will not withdraw from the agreement".
There have been influential voices urging Trump not to ditch the Paris accord.
A downward revision would certainly prompt criticism from the global community, but not almost so much as an abandonment.
The Pruitt team is deciding on whether to initiate a full, formal withdrawal which could take three years or exit the underlying United Nations climate change treaty, which would be faster but more extreme, Axis reported.
Moreover, the accord is flexible in the sense that it does not mandate that any nation achieve any particular level of emissions cuts.
Global leaders began reacting to the reports of Trump's plans. McKenna said she wouldn't speculate on President Donald Trump's decision but added that there are economic opportunities that come with the agreement in addition to long-term benefits for the environment. They estimate that the world would warm by 3.6 degrees Celsius (6.4 degrees Fahrenheit) by 2100 when compared with pre-industrial levels if Trump quits Paris, more than the 3.3-degree baseline scenario. The Earth is already about 1C warmer than it was at that time, scientists have determined, and current and near future emissions seem quite likely to take the planet past 1.5C in the coming decades.
Trump's chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, has discussed the possibility of changing the US carbon reduction targets instead of pulling out of the deal completely.
Since taking office on January 20, Trump has sent contradictory signals on the Paris deal - reflecting the different currents within his administration, both on climate change but also on the wider issue of America's role in the world and its position on multilateralism.
"Some may seek to portray the response to climate change as a fundamental threat to the economy", said Guterres.
In light of this, it will be hard for the President to argue that the Paris agreement hurts the USA economy.
He also said that he would engage more with Governments and major actors, including the coal, oil and gas industries, to accelerate the global transition to sustainable energy, and committed stronger support by the entire United Nations development system to Governments as they strive to meet climate commitments and achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially at the country level.
