Paris Accord: PM May under fire for not signing G7 protest

Paris Accord: PM May under fire for not signing G7 protest Paris Accord: PM May under fire for not signing G7 protest

"We're all in", said Brown, who alongside the governors of Washington and NY announced the formation of the United States Climate Alliance, committing their states to upholding the Paris Agreement.

Hua said that China will remain committed to upholding and promoting global governance on climate change and take an active part in the multilateral process. And it gave China fresh weight in a newly unbalanced landscape where longtime USA allies are searching for stability. South Africa's government calls the USA pullout "an abdication of global responsibility".

"The EU deeply regrets the unilateral decision by the Trump administration", he said in a statement.

Trump cited China's continued emissions as one justification for withdrawing from the climate accord, which the Republican said unfairly burdened US industries. But, he said, "strong transatlantic ties are far more important and far more durable than the latest unfortunate decisions of the USA administration". China is finding willing partners not just in the developing world, but also in the West.

More than ever, Trump's disregard for the future of the planet is a call to other countries-as well private business-to do more to fill the gap created by the US's Paris exit. Many senior European officials were jolted by the talks, which started in the winding streets of Brussels and continued on to muggy Sicily.

Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk and Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger said they would leave White House advisory councils after Trump's move. Many major corporations like Exxon, Shell, and Walmart had urged Trump to keep the USA in the Paris accord.

Trump's move to yank America out of the Paris Agreement was criticized by many as abdicating American leadership on the global stage in the face of the climate change crisis.

Seven Social Democratic ministers in her coalition government said the United States "is harming itself, we Europeans and all the people of the world".

The European message has been unusually tough.

Led by Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Emmanuel Macron, they have branded Trump's decision as misguided and vowed to defend an accord they consider crucial to the future of the planet. We've stated before that the Paris Agreement falls short of embracing the sort of climate solutions that lift up human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples.

Newspapers on the continent generally expressed disappointment at the decision, but saw in it an opportunity for Europe to forge a new path.

A Greenpeace banner showing U.S. President Donald Trump and the slogan '#TotalLoser, so sad!' is projected onto the facade of the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, Germany, Friday, June 2, 2017. His stunning posture left the distinct impression that for the new American president, the nation's long-standing obligations to allies are neither unshakable nor unbreakable.

A presenter on Russia's state-controlled Channel One TV said that Mr Trump has "shaken the global community once again". "The Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States'". He was matched only by the Kremlin-friendly Czech president, Milos Zeman, who did something similar, according to the diplomat.

But others had a starkly grimmer conclusion.

- Conservative prime minister Theresa May called Trump after his public statement and said she was "disappointed" with the decision and that the United Kingdom was still committed to meeting the targets set out by the deal.

"By talking about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as a transactional alliance", he said, "it's very hard to rebuild that kind of inbuilt trust".

One obvious victor from the repudiation of the agreement is Donald Trump, many of whose supporters will cheer his fulfillment of a campaign pledge and his assertion of American determination to go its own way.

The next day, she told a beer-tent rally in Munich that Europe "must take its fate into its own hands", offering poor prospects for cooperation with Washington.
