Trump Believes in Climate Change, Says US Ambassador

Donald Trump

"Just because the USA got out of a club doesn't mean we aren't going to care about the environment", she said. "I mean you could not actually have a business run under the regulations that we had", she said.

"They will find in France a second homeland", Macron said. "I knew that as a governor".

Trump argued that the nonbinding agreement imposed "draconian financial and economic burdens on our country", and predicted it would cost millions of jobs and trillions of dollars to the United States economy - a stance critics quickly noted did not consider the health benefits from cutting emissions and the potential economic benefits of investments in clean energy. "It was not possible to meet the goals had we attempted to".

Trump himself ignored a question about climate change when asked by journalists during an unrelated event Friday, although he did joke that Thursday's decision had proven "controversial".

In a statement, the UNFCCC secretariat said that it took note of the announced intention to renegotiate the modalities for the US participation in the Agreement and, in that regard, the secretariat stood ready to engage in dialogue with the US Government regarding the implications of the announcement.

The president is looking at "perhaps a new construct of an agreement", he added, noting that Trump believes the issue "is still important and that he wants to stay engaged". "Everybody knows he isn't going to do that because he doesn't believe in it".

"The climate is changing and it is changing because of human activity", Jonathan Lynn, the head of Communications and Media Relations at IPCC, told journalists at a regular press briefing in Geneva. And in multiple instances, he and his administration have avoided using the term "climate change" altogether. That the Paris Accord on climate change was somehow a bad thing for our country.

With the United States virtually isolated on the world stage, a string of administration officials have sought to justify the decision to abandon the 195-nation Paris deal curbing global emissions.

Tesla Inc chief executive officer Elon Musk and Walt Disney Co CEO Robert Iger reacted by leaving White House advisory councils after Mr Trump's move.

"The global community must compel the new U.S. administration to implement its worldwide commitments precisely and completely", Ghasemi said. "But American sovereignty matters", Haley said. "He is absolutely intent on making sure that we have clean air, clean water, that he makes sure that we're doing everything we can to keep America's moral compass in the world when it comes to the environment", she said.
