Anger over US withdrawal from climate change accord

SKY NEWS:-President Donald Trump has said the US will withdraw from the Paris climate change accord, sparking dismay and anger among world leaders.

In a news conference in the Rose Garden at the White House, Mr Trump said he was fulfilling his “solemn duty to protect America and its citizens”.

He said: “I am fighting every day for the great people of this country.

“Therefore, in order to fulfil my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the US will withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

“But begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction.

“We’re getting out, but we will start to negotiate and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair.”

Mr Trump said the US will “cease all implementation” of the accord as of Thursday.

Theresa May has told the President of her “disappointment” and reiterated Britain’s commitment to the deal, according a Downing Street statement.

However, political rivals have accused her of not taking Mr Trump to task over his u-turn.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn described her failure to join forces with the three other European G7 members in writing a letter of concern to Mr Trump as a “dereliction of duty”.

He said: “Why does Theresa May not have her name on this joint decision? Given the chance to have a united front with our European partners she’s opted instead for silence, and once again subservience to Donald Trump.

    Climate change has always been in existence and the world will continue to evolve. How do we explain the disappearance of the dinosaurs and other extinct species? How do we explain the forever changing climates. So I agree with Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Change Accord. A waste of billions which can be better spent on the poor.
