Not just Climate. Trump's exit from Paris agreement has important Health consequences

State media for North Korea called President Donald Trump selfish Tuesday for his move to pull out of the Paris Climate accord.

States can do a great deal to mitigate climate change and pollution, as shown by the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative over the last decade-plus.

"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 risky and costly effects of climate change", reads the letter signed by local and state government leaders, universities and businesses.

Canada's recent foreign policy vision makes clear its policies are more aligned with Europe's than Trump's, but McKenna says she has more on her agenda for a discussion with Pruitt than just climate change. For diplomatic, environmental, and economic reasons, the USA must remain a signatory to the agreement.

"If we can get enough local actors to do good work, we can still head toward that agreement and head toward those goals", she said.

In addition, mayors from around the state also joined in the message of solidarity, signing a commitment agreement to follows the goals set out at the COP21 meeting.

"But that's temporary", the California governor said.

"They're already cleaner than fossil fuels, subsidies aside".

"Countries are not necessarily feeling like it's going to be a sacrifice to transition to clean energy", said Anderson, who attended the original Paris climate talks. The U.S., Russian Federation and China are part of the agreement which covers an area about twice the size of Texas.

He said along with Trump's past actions, like leaving the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, are signs of America's decline in global leadership. It connects the U.S.' "hostile policy" towards the Korean peninsula as a reason for its nuclear weapons program and says those who blindly follow the Trump administration "should be fully aware that the judgment of history shall take them all as one".

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt touted U.S. emissions reductions over past years and said that despite withdrawing from the Paris accord, the Trump administration would continue to engage others, particularly developing nations, on the effort.

It was steady, principled American leadership on the world stage that made that achievement possible. "We see the impacts of our actions very close to home".
