Trump Warned Against Quitting Paris Climate Deal

The CEO of SpaceX, Musk has said further delay in adopting policies to mitigate climate change would cause more "destruction than all the wars in history combined". He declined to answer a question about whether he believes climate change is a hoax.

Once in power, Trump and Pruitt have moved to delay or roll back federal regulations limiting greenhouse gas emissions while pledging to revive the long-struggling us coal mines.

During the campaign, Mr. Trump dismissed the scientific consensus that rising temperatures are caused primarily by fossil fuels like coal and oil. In it the US had agreed to reduce its emissions by 26 percent by 2025 when compared to levels in 2005 - about 1.6 billion tons.

Russian Federation has also spoken out ahead of Mr Trump's decision with a Kremlin statement saying the Paris agreement would be less effective without the major participants. And I think this president is looking at this and saying, I'm here as the President of the United States.

"We wish to work with the European Union to strengthen our communication and practical cooperation in climate change", Hua said. "If we all like the Paris agreement, he may decide to get out of it".

"But if in the coming hours or days the American president said that he wanted to withdraw from the Paris Accord, it's Europe's duty to say, it doesn't work like that".
