Pittsburgh to Trump: You don't speak for us on climate

Trump said on Thursday that the us will leave the Paris climate deal, making it one of three countries-along with Syria and Nicaragua, the latter of which didn't believe the pact went far enough-to hold out of the deal. "Today's announcement by the president leaves the full responsibility of climate action on states and cities throughout our nation". For his part, Trump says that staying in the agreement would have assured us a future of "lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production".

The Steel city went to Democrat Hillary Clinton in the election.

The political leaders join university presidents and companies who also oppose President Trump's decision.

The group gathered at Lafayette Square, General Jackson Statue, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

On "The Story" tonight, Gen. Jack Keane pointed out that Kerry took the lead for the USA on the Paris agreement, in addition to the Iran nuclear deal, both of which he called "lousy".

"President Trump's political decision, contrary to the wishes of the United States and global science and business communities, the American people, mayors, the majority of Congress, his own Secretary of State, the US military, and many more, places the United States with only Nicaragua and Syria as non signatories", Stodola stated. Within the USA, the announcement saw protests amidst questions about President Trump's views on climate change.

Irving also rolled an ankle on a drive and bucket with 1:47 left in the third but was able to stay in the game. They all know not to expect the same, unusually tame James in Game 4. "Defensively, we've got to be better".

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi charged that President Trump's grounds for withdrawing the USA from the Paris Climate Agreement "was totally not factual".

Trump's decision means the US will no longer be dropping billions of dollars into the Green Climate Fund.

Stanton said there is a symbolic aspect to mayors reiterating their commitment to acting on climate change as the White House withdraws from the deal. Reporters tried to ask Trump that earlier this week.

Youngstown, Ohio, Mayor John McNally (D) said he supports the Paris agreement in a phone interview Friday, adding he was surprised at the shoutout from Trump.

"And the reason European leaders. want us to stay in is because they know it'll continue to shackle our economy, though we are leading the world with respect to our Carbon dioxide reduction".

This all illustrates the key point - as far as the climate is concerned, what matters is not what Trump says or does, but how the rest of America and the rest of the world responds, both politically and practically.
