EU, China to reaffirm support for climate pact

Following Donald Trump's highly controversial decision to pull the United States from the Paris climate agreement, world leaders, CEOs, and other prominent figures have slammed the president.

"The decision of the U.S.to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement is very regrettable, and I'm expressing myself in a very reserved way when I say that", she said, adding that the deal was needed to protect the environment.

"Trump's decision to ditch the Paris deal will leave a fairly big shoe for a single country to fill", Xinhua wrote.

"Given the chance to present a united front with our global partners, she has instead opted for silence and subservience to Donald Trump", Corbyn said.

However, things changed drastically when the President Trump Withdrew US form the Paris Climate Accord.

As a member of the global community, Taiwan would continue to do its utmost to promote issues like green energy, green transportation and sustainable development, according to the presidential spokesman. 'Without US participation, it is more hard to achieve the goals of the Paris agreement, but the rest of the world is still behind it.

"There is a pathway here where the rest of America in reaction to, really, what is an insane decision by President Trump, takes the kind of steps needed", California Governor Jerry Brown said. In Tokyo, an irate Koichi Yamamoto, the environment minister, said "I'm not just disappointed, but also feel anger".

This devastating decision abdicates our role as a global leader, and breaks our promise to almost nations to work together to address climate change.

Muguruza will next face either Shelby Rogers of the United States or 13th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic of France. For example, it took Basilashvili until the 12th game of the match to register on the scoreboard.

"Without global action to drastically curb carbon pollution, climate change threatens the safety and security of the planet, especially in places like Hawai? where we are already experiencing its devastating effects", she said.

US President announced the exit from the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change mitigation on June 1, 2017.

It's safe to say the NY paper is not a fan of Trump's decision.

Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso drew parallels to the US setting up a plan to establish the League of Nations after World War I, only to back out later.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the decision was "seriously wrong".

"As the world starts to finance renewable energies, and those that finance banks understand that is where the financial waters are moving, then the United States will either be a part of that, or we're going to be left behind and watch Germany and Southeast Asia lead the next economic revolution", Peduto said Thursday on CNN.

In Mexico, former President Vicente Fox criticized Trump's move, saying on Twitter- "He's declaring war on the planet itself". He is also a UN Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change.
