In what surpasses all governmental catastrophic decisions across the world and puts the globe's long-term survival under serious jeopardy, US President Donald Trump has announced that the US is withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord due to the "draconian financial and economic burdens" the agreement imposed on the US.
NBC's Kristen Welker asked Pruitt, "You're the EPA administrator; shouldn't you be able to tell the American people whether or not the president still believes that climate change is a hoax?". India is a responsible nation with regard to climate change.We can milk the nature. The bottom line, he said, is that the Paris agreement cost the U.S.jobs.
His decision, announced on Thursday, triggered widespread worldwide condemnation.
"While Trump tries to isolate the USA from these opportunities, Europe, China and India are moving ahead with building clean-energy economies, ditching climate-trashing fossil fuels and creating jobs". According to the EPA administrator, if nations around the globe want to learn from the United States on what it is doing to reduce its Carbon dioxide footprint, it is going to share that with them. While Trump and Pence have suggested the possibility of renegotiating the agreement, the leaders of Italy, Germany and France have said that won't happen. It said the decision to withdraw from the accord "is another relevant negative step for global relations".
Bloomberg has also urged U.S. cities, states and businesses to follow suit so that the country fulfils its commitments under the accord even though it has officially withdrawn from the pact.

"Over the past decade, the US has led the world in emission reductions and our federal government had very little to do with it", said former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
"We are already halfway there and we can accelerate our process further even without any support from Washington", Bloomberg said.
Meanwhile, President Macron restated his position that the Paris accord was "irreversible" and would be implemented.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who had urged Trump to stay in the Paris deal, did not attend the ceremony, nor did Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and his wife, Ivanka, both close advisers to the president who supported staying in the agreement. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. The U.S. Sierra Club, citing Trump's endorsement of what he regards as clean coal, tweeted: "Clean coal, you can find that next to the unicorns and leprechauns".
The United Nations described Trump's decision as a "major disappointment for global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote global security". "That's what our focus has been over the last several weeks", Pruitt replied.

It may be years, however, before the country can formally exit the deal, but Trump said he'll immediately halt implementation. His estimate is that pulling out of the Paris agreement would cost the US economy $8.2 trillion through 2100. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we'll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks. He also repeated his refrain that questions about President Trump's personal views on climate change are beside the point. He criticized the pact as a job-killer that put the United States as an unfair advantage.
What are they saying in America?
"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris", he said Thursday from the White House.
However, Republican congressional leaders and the U.S. coal industry backed the move, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supporting Mr Trump "for dealing yet another significant blow to the Obama administration's assault on domestic energy production and jobs".
What was agreed in Paris? We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. Calculations suggest withdrawal from the Paris accord could result in emissions of up to 3 billion tons of additional carbon dioxide a year - enough to melt ice sheets faster, raise seas higher and trigger more extreme weather. Only Syria and Nicaragua did not sign up.
