"With the planet warming at an alarming rate and the poorest of the poor left to withstand the consequences, there will undoubtedly be more global instability, forced migration and conflict", said Bill O'Keefe, CRS' executive vice president of Mission, Mobilization and Advocacy.

He further added that, "T$3 he USA approach incorporates the reality of the global energy mix and uses all energy sources and technologies cleanly and efficiently, including fossil fuels, nuclear energy, and renewable energy".

Furthermore, the withdrawal of the US from the agreement could potentially imperil the survival and efficacy of the entire treaty, as other countries could feel discouraged from upholding their commitments to reduce emissions.

And Nathaniel Keohane, EDF Senior Vice President, Climate, said this week that the landmark Paris Agreement was a good deal for the United States and the climate the day it was signed, and it remains a good deal for the United States and the climate.

Negotiators spent the early months of the Trump presidency debating strategies for salvaging American support for the accord.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she sometimes despairs at the pace at which other countries are making changes to fight global warming and vowed that New Zealand would be a leader.

"Today, the United States began the process to withdraw from the Paris Agreement".

China, now the largest emitter of planet-warming pollutants, has made significant promises but Beijing's ability to deliver is still in question.

In reality, however, the United States' stalling on climate action would not only magnify the human and financial cost it will have to bear due to climate-related disasters (currently estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars and hundreds of millions of people affected), but also cause it to miss out on an opportunity to play a crucial role in transitioning the global economy to renewable energy.

On Monday, the United States gave its formal notification of its intent to exit the Paris Climate Accord.

"The E.U.is the front line out here". France and Germany this year proposed a European carbon tax to impose on countries with less stringent climate protection policies.

"I hope it means the next generation will see that we were on the right side of history".

The Paris Agreement by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) requires each of the 197 participating countries to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Efforts to strategize for the possibility of a second Trump administration are occurring at home and overseas. Meyer argued that "President Trump's decision to walk away from the Paris Agreement is irresponsible and shortsighted". Stefanik said she wants to create a "level playing field" for renewable energy sources, including wind, sun and hydro.

The President and his Republican allies say the climate agreement was too costly to USA business.
