Trump Believes in Climate Change, Says US Ambassador

The Irish Government "is extremely disappointed and concerned that the United States has made a decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement", Climate Action Minister Denis Naughten said last night.

Under the Paris agreement, negotiated during former President Barack Obama's tenure, the United States voluntarily committed to reducing polluting emissions by 1.6 billion tons by 2025.

She added that the warming climate is "a big health issue for the air our children and grandchildren breathe". In an interview last week with The Boston Globe, Kerry said the president's announcement Thursday "was a day of craven ignorance and cynicism that moved the presidency of the United States away from global leadership into a narrow little niche of ideological, political self-preservation". Alas, Republicans must really love the alliteration because they're hosting a "Pittsburgh, Not Paris" rally in Lafayette Square on Saturday. "Mayor Peduto will speaking the truth about climate change and 21st century solutions at a counter-rally tomorrow in Pittsburgh". "The Paris agreement is here to stay and the 29 articles of the Paris agreement are not to be renegotiated", he said Friday.

"The decision of the Trump administration to withdraw from the Paris Agreement sets back united action on climate and risks jobs, said Sharan Burrow, the General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation".

I think our team probably respond to must-win games really well. "But to be fair it was raining quite heavily". Stung by the skipper's outburst, the bowlers came out all guns firing and dished out a much improved display.

"As a small country, we have also staunchly supported the rules- based multilateral system, and upheld the critical role of diplomacy in solving problems on the global commons", NCCS said.

Bloomberg, who is the UN Secretary-General's special envoy for cities and climate change, said the U.S. had led the world on emission reductions over the past decade.

And in Pittsburgh, Peduto also issued an executive order reaffirming that the city's climate plans remain in line with the Paris Agreement.

Under the accord wealthier countries, like the U.S., agreed to help developing nations by providing climate finance to assist in adaptation and moving to renewable energy. 195 nations originally signed up to participate in the agreement. Part of the reason, he asserted during a press conference, was because of the Green Climate Fund that Trump says costs the US "billions of billions of billions" of dollars.

Russian Federation is the world's biggest crude oil producer and the fifth-largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

"This historic partnership to push forward with the Paris Agreement is a significant advance in the fight against climate change".

Trump's decision means the US will no longer be dropping billions of dollars into the Green Climate Fund. "Actions by each group will multiply and accelerate in the years ahead, no matter what policies Washington may adopt".

China, the European Union and India, which along with the United States make up the four biggest emitters of carbon dioxide, ehave restated their commitment to the accord. Investments in renewable energy in Europe, though, have dropped by half in the past six years.
