Haley: 'President Trump believes the climate is changing'

Haley: 'President Trump believes the climate is changing'”

President Donald Trump's decision to pull the US out of the 2015 Paris climate accord added to the growing discord between the new administration and the technology sector.

They signed an open letter as part of the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda to "adopt, honor and uphold Paris Climate Agreement goals".

"In the absence of leadership from Washington, states, cities, colleges and universities and businesses representing a sizeable percentage of the USA economy will pursue ambitious climate goals, working together to take forceful action and to ensure that the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing emissions", the coalition, which now consists of more than 1,000 entities, said in a statement yesterday. "We're supposed to get rid of ours", Trump said Thursday, according to CNN.

Rebecca Lindland, an executive analyst with Kelley Blue Book, said Trump's decision won't have an immediate impact on automakers, who had no specific targets to meet under the Paris agreement.

It's unclear if the president has changed his position on climate change, with many of his aides insisting this week that they do not know their boss's position on a key issue that's at the heart of a deal that the administration wants to exit.

Raimondo said Friday that Trump's action will not deter Rhode Island from taking the steps needed to address climate change.

Some corporations that had supported the Paris agreement were quick to signal that Trump's decision would not change their plans.

"India signed the Paris agreement not because of pressure from any country nor greed".

Germany's DIHK Chambers of Commerce warned that some USA companies could gain short-term advantages by Trump's decision to pull out of the climate deal. "The bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States".

"When it comes to our economy, environment and global moral standing, this move by our president is a major stumble", said Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, which represents major technology companies. But critics of his move pointed out that renewable energy industries, particularly solar, are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs - far more than now exist in coal.

China and the European Union released a joint statement at the meeting, saying the two parties "consider climate action and the clean energy transition an imperative more important than ever". "Addressing climate change is not just an environmental or moral imperative, it is an economic imperative". Another tally puts the GDP hit at more than $8 trillion through 2100 - but that's the damage estimated if the US exits the deal.

Jason Bordoff, an energy-policy expert at Columbia University, said withdrawing from the Paris agreement would make no difference to the USA energy outlook or economy. John Barrasso, R-Wyoming, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and Sen.

"We have seen, from every corner of the world", Figueres said, "every country around coming out to say that this is good for their economy, and they remain committed to the Paris agreement". Several large oil companies including Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell had urged Trump not to withdraw.

Schweitzer said other countries should stick to their commitments, but warned that attempting to compensate for the USA withdrawal by other countries redoubling their commitments would be self-defeating.
