Rhode Island to join states in Paris climate agreement pact

"India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from developed countries", Mr. Trump said, of the financing commitments by developed countries under the pact that is widely considered inadequate to deal with the challenges of climate change.

"With respect to the Paris accord, the focus is on the efficacy, the merits of the deal and the demerits of the deal", Pruitt replied.

The Revenant star posted on Facebook, "Today, the future livability of our planet was threatened by President Trump's careless decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement".

On Friday, Pruitt said Trump had made a "courageous" and "informed" decision and said he admired the president's "fortitude and leadership in this matter".

Catastrophic climate change? Not in my lifetime. Time's Zeke Miller asked. He declined to give a straight answer not once, not twice, but three times.

He said under the Paris deal, developed countries agreed to set economy-wide reductions in greenhouse gas emissions while developing countries "should continue enhancing their mitigation efforts" with the aim of achieving economy-wide absolute reductions eventually. There could be more uncertainty ahead if this week's Paris Agreement announcement was any indication.

"I have not had an opportunity to have that discussion", White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters.

And Friday morning, his counselor Kellyanne Conway was also asked the question on ABC's "Good Morning America". Together, we will remain actively engaged with the worldwide community as part of the global effort to hold warming to under 2°C and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health.

"The president believes in a clean environment, clean air, clean water". He's received awards as a businessman in that regard.

"The science on climate change is perfectly clear: we need more action, not less".

"Global warming is occurring, that human activity contributes to it in some manner". "I would say that there are climate exaggerators". "We are not talking about a fictional apocalypse like the one in the movie 2012", said Oliver, "But a real global disaster, like the movie 2012". The group will seek to pursue the climate goals established under the Paris accord, and in California's case, excel beyond them.

"Well, that's up to them, right?" If the result is that tariffs are imposed on all solar imports to the United States, it could crush the solar industry here for years to come, costing the country thousands of jobs. After all, we're the United States.
