Auto makers unshaken by Trump's move on Paris accord

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:53

President Donald Trump announced the USA was withdrawing from the Paris accord earlier this month, framing it as a "reassertion of America's sovereignty".

"The United States will continue to engage with key worldwide partners in a manner that is consistent with our domestic priorities", the communique read in a note.

Group of Seven climate talks confirmed a crack between six member states and the US after the country's representative left the summit in Italy just hours after arriving.

"Cathy McMorris Rodgers posted her statement regarding President Trumps decision to leave the Paris climate accord on her Web page: "...

When G7 leaders met in Sicily last month, they publicly recognised that the United States was isolated on the climate issue, with the other six member countries vowing to continue promoting green technology and renewable energy forms.

Trudeau's office has also been touting the prime minister's diplomatic moves to reach out to other global leaders to take action on climate change.

The G7 environment ministers issued a final communique Monday after their two-day meeting, the first since the United States announced it was withdrawing from the Paris climate pact. He had to return to Washington for a Cabinet meeting.

12 states and Puerto Rico have become members of the U.S. Climate Alliance and remain committed to achieving existing Carbon dioxide emission reduction goals (Green States).

German Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks said all seven countries had agreed on the need to take action but disappointment had been expressed at the USA decision to leave the Paris Accord.


Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna stands during question period in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Thursday, June 8, 2017. "The transition to a low-carbon economy is on the march and it has an irreversible dynamic, including in the United States", he said in comments that played on the name of Macron's "En Marche!" movement.

Ford affirmed its position that "climate change is real", saying it remains "deeply committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our vehicles and our facilities".

In a footnote, the United States said it was showing its commitment to a reduced C02 footprint by achieving pre-1994 levels of the gas.

"In terms of what the U.S.as a whole does, does it matter what Iowa City does?"

"Today's action of reaching consensus makes clear that the Paris Agreement is not the only mechanism by which environmental stewardship can be demonstrated", he said.

Quizzed on Good Morning Britain about whether President Trump was wrong to withdraw from the accord, Mr Gove said: "Yes, I think he is wrong".

"The momentum around the Paris agreement is irreversible", McKenna said. Trump says the deal will cost U.S.jobs and harm the economy.

Since the Trump announcement on June 1, many states, including California and NY, and large numbers of us cities have said they intend to continue to enact policies aimed at reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.
