I'll make sure UN gets $15 million for Paris agreement

German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaks during a meeting at the lower house of parliament Bundestag on 2017 budget in Berlin, Germany, November 23, 2016.

The Federal Government says it will not pull out of the Paris Agreement, which is seen as a turning point for global climate change policy.

"I want the world to know that the USA will meet its Paris commitments and that through partnerships among cities, states and businesses we will seek to remain part of the Paris agreement process", Bloomberg said.

Trump announced Thursday that the United States was withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, a 2015 accord between almost every nation to reduce carbon emissions most scientists agree alter the planet's climate.

"Trump pulling out of the Paris climate agreement is an embarrassment, both to our country and to the planet, and we need bold, direct action to reverse climate change", she said.

"People have called me a climate skeptic or a climate denier", Pruitt continued.

"It's 46 (really cold) and snowing in NY on Memorial Day - tell the so-called "scientists" that we want global warming right now!" he wrote in May 2013 - one of several instances in which he said that warming would be welcome.

Lori Robertson, managing editor of FactCheck.Org which is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Centre, said there was nothing in the Paris agreement that stipulates which countries can and cannot build coal plants. For a president focused on putting America first, though, this is unlikely to concern Trump for the time being. "Even if the United States no longer participates in climate agreements, it can not afford to cede climate knowledge to overseas competitors". Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement Thursday that Trump's decision creates a "false choice" between economic growth and preserving the environment.


"IBM believes we can make a constructive contribution by having a direct dialogue with the administration - as we do with governments around the world", a company spokeswoman said.

Bloomberg is U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's special envoy for cities and climate change.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo on Friday disagreed with Trump's assertion that his decision was a good move for the American economy.

"If we can grow our economy, we're going to consume more and more products", he said.

Announcing America's intention to withdraw from the agreement sends a clear message to the rest of the world that the second-highest emitting nation has no intention of doing its part to save the world's most vulnerable people from impending harm. Indeed, leading military experts, including Secretary of Defense James Mattis, have warned that the impact of climate change will lead to more refugee flows, more starvation, more conflict, and more terrorism.

Gearing up for Trump's decision, Reps.

Scientists say every fraction of a degree change in average temperatures can lead to noticeable swings in local weather patterns, although consequences are hard to predict.
