Finally, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also criticized the decision in a statement, "We are deeply disappointed that the United States federal government has chose to withdraw from the Paris Agreement".

Tracy Twine, associate professor in the Department of Soil, Water and Climate, has done research showing how climate change could hurt future corn yields.

“Its really important to the worldwide community that the perception of the USA stepping out of agreement needs to be dispelled, ” Hart said.

And the Paris climate agreement represents the best global effort yet to arrest the consequences of climate change.

Nevertheless, by making us the odd men out in a pact endorsed by virtually every nation on the planet, Trump is catapulting climate change into the forefront of the public psyche. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. When it comes to the politics surrounding the Paris Agreement, as we did with Kyoto, we will leave the politics to the politicians-it's not going to stop us from doing our part to help European Union member-states meet their goals. More than 200 mayors across the country pledged the same. This is emphatically so if the "green", renewable energy-oriented communities that are created are an economic success that dwarfs any progress in the fiscally depressed mining towns courted by Trump. The Trump administration has hinted that they could pull that waiver, taking away a key tool to reduce transportation emissions, which account for 27 percent of all USA carbon pollution. Pursuant to President Trump's March 2017 Executive Order on Energy Independence the United States Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") is now considering whether and how to suspend, revise, or rescind the Clean Power Plan.

In the 10 years since, whatever uncertainty there was about climate change has been removed.

The momentum of existing climate-change efforts and the availability natural gas, wind and solar power mean those loyal to the Paris accord in the US will have an easier time, with emissions expected to fall overall for years, said Robert Perciasepe with the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, who worked with Bloomberg's group on the climate pledge. He also said that Trump's pulling out of the accord could have disastrous effects. Texas, Oklahoma and North Dakota - big oil states - are all getting more than 20 percent of their electricity from wind turbines that are also helping to support our family ranches and farms. "We will need to rely on leadership at the state, city, and municipal level as we await leadership at the national level."States and cities hold vast economic clout".

"Countries are not necessarily feeling like it's going to be a sacrifice to transition to clean energy", said Anderson, who attended the original Paris climate talks.

According to The New York Times, President Obama's Clean Power Plan would have "closed hundreds of coal-fired power plants" and "frozen construction of new plants".

"It is further premised on a strong understanding that we all have a common responsibility to act, whilst noting that nations over time have contributed to the problem differently, and have varied capabilities to respond".
