North Korea slams Trump for pulling out of Paris Climate Agreement

North Korea slams Trump for pulling out of Paris Climate Agreement”

"The Trump administration's announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world's ability to avoid the most unsafe and costly effects of climate change", the "We Are Still In" letter said.

The missive takes a strong stance against the USA, typical for the secretive regime.

A week after releasing a budget proposal that would slash funding for USDA rural development, cut farm conservation programs, and exacerbate hunger in rural communities, President Trump announced the U.S.is pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord. "If the US administration doesn't want to move forward, individual states will. California is already a world leader on climate policy".

"This pact was signed by former President Obama without Congressional approval".

"House Republicans are focused on North Carolina's energy future and the best interests of our citizens ... by moving legislation that has broad support from renewable power developers, utilities, and ratepayer protection groups alike", said Joseph Kyzer, a spokesman for NC House Speaker Tim Moore. French President Emmanuel Macron posted a video online in English calling on climate scientists to come to France and ending with the message, "We all share the same responsibility, make our planet great again".

Speeding up the transition to renewable energy is good for our health, jobs, global diplomacy and USA security. It has just become the world's biggest producer of solar energy. Acting U.S. ambassador to China David Rank resigned his position because of the move.

The South African government has asked the United States to reconsider its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Although the U.S.is out of the accord, Canada remains signed on. Taking a step back while momentum is building would hurt our country, reducing our credibility with other world leaders and compromising our ability to participate in the booming global clean energy economy. "With World Environment Day on June 5, the U.S.'s decision means that climate action is important now more than ever".

These will lay out climate changes for the next five years and show where the nation intends to exceed its previous commitments.
