Uh, Even North Korea Thinks Trump's Paris Climate Decision Was

Trump's announcement that the United States would withdraw from the global accord drew ridicule from foreign leaders around the world and made the USA one of only three countries not signed up to the accord, the others being Nicaragua and Syria.

The bills' signage came with the support of four Hawaiian county mayors, who have joined hundreds of other mayors across the US in signing a commitment agreement.

Immediately following Mr Trump's unprecedented move, three state governors created the US Climate Alliance which pledged to uphold their obligations under the Paris agreement.

As for the Paris Climate Accord, 196 different countries agreed to adopt green energy sources, cut down on emissions and limit the spike in global temperatures.

"I think it's very important that we state how we feel about this terrible thing that our president has done, again", Councilman Kelley Singleton said.

The Pennsylvania city is also planning to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2023 and move toward 100% renewable energy power by 20135.

Mr Trump's decision, based on the deal being bad for American jobs, was met with scorn and condemnation both at home and overseas, with isolated North Korea among the latest to join the chorus. Another bill establishes a "Carbon Farming Task Force", which will evaluate agriculture and aquaculture practices for improved soil health and carbon sequestration.

"Climate change is real, regardless of what others may say", USA Today quotes Ige as saying.

Tek Vannara, executive director of the NGO Forum, said that Trump's "protectionism" would badly affect countries like Cambodia and urged the United States to reconsider the move.

The governors of Washington, California and NY on the same day announced the creation of a "climate alliance" of states that would remain committed to the Paris goals. US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement threatens to undermine global efforts to mitigate global warming as the US accounts for nearly 18 per cent of annual global emissions.

"When it comes to the threat of climate change, we have shown that environmental sustainability and economic progress are not contradictory but are complementary", he told the enthusiastic crowd.
