Trump Plans to Exit Paris Climate Deal, White House Official Tells AP

The website said that according to three sources with direct knowledge, Trump privately told multiple people, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, that he plans to leave the Paris agreement.

The statement follows speculation that President Donald Trump may soon announce USA withdrawal from the Paris worldwide agreement of 2015 to reduce climate-warming carbon emissions.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters at the time that the other leaders of the other G7 nations - France, Japan, Canada, the United Kingdom and Italy - told Trump at the summit to stay in the agreement, signed in 2015.

According to Axios, the Trump administration is now working out the exact details of how the United States will exit the agreement.

Almost 200 nations signed the historic Paris Agreement during a United Nations climate conference at the end of 2015. But in a rather blunt statement, they said America "is not in a position to join the consensus" on the Paris Agreement and one of the biggest challenges humanity faces today.

In a slightly more cautious report, CBS says the president is expected to withdraw from the accord, but has also has discussed with senior White House staff an effort to renegotiate the agreement with an eye to making its provisions less onerous to USA industry.

The Associated Press meanwhile, reports Trump's announcement, which he has promised to make this week, may include "caveats" suggesting his decision is not final, so there's that.

"My sense is the climate train has left the station around the world and even in the United States - particularly at the state level - there's an terrible lot going on", Robertson said.

California Rep. Nancy Pelosi says Trump is "denying scientific truths, removing safeguards that protect our health and our environment, protecting polluters and. threatening our national and global security".

If the US pulls out of the Paris deal, it would become the largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions not included in the agreement, according to EPA data.

"What a ridiculous situation", Trump said in the post.

Trump promised to pull the USA out of the deal during his presidential campaign.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has warned United States that quitting the Paris climate agreement could threaten the country's economic, security and societal status. "Climate solutions provide opportunities that are unmatchable".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and 21 other Republican sent Trump a letter last week urging him to follow through on his campaign pledge to pull out of the climate accord.

Australia's national interest is best served if the U.S. remains in the Paris climate change agreement, a Senate hearing has been told. Climate change is unstoppable.

The comments from Mattis, in an interview aired today, come after Trump tweeted yesterday that he would take a decision "next week" on whether to stick to or renege on the climate agreement.
