President Trump has announced that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, the 2015 worldwide accord by which 195 nations agreed to limit greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
US supporters of the pact said any pullout by Trump would show that the United States can no longer be trusted to follow through on global commitments.
President Emmanuel Macron of France repeated that belief in an English-language speech from the Elysee presidential palace, unprecedented from a French president in an address at home.
But Trump didn't seem all that committed to opening up a new round of talks, saying of getting a deal, "if we can, that's great". The White House said the USA will stop contributing to the United Nations Green Climate Fund and will stop reporting carbon data as required by the Paris accord, although domestic regulations require that reporting anyway. Withdrawing would leave the United States aligned only with Russian Federation among the world's industrialized economies.
Obama broke his recent silence on Thursday at nearly the exact time Donald Trump announced the USA will leave the Paris Climate Agreement.

Johnson says the treaty reached during Barack Obama's presidency put America at a disadvantage by forcing the United States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while allowing countries such as China and India to increase their own use. "The world can continue to count on Europe for global leadership in the fight against climate change".
