"It's clear that the demerits, the efficacy both in environmental outcomes as well as the cost to us from a jobs perspective was a bad deal for this country", Pruitt said, arguing the USA has already accomplished a great deal in reducing its carbon footprint. Trump's post-Paris analysis: they can't even get the weather report right, so how come they think they can get that right? However, like the other provisions of the agreement, this is non-binding. "If the president is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up". "Follow the lead of the other worldwide leader who have moved towards a low carbon economy".

Opposition to Trump's decision outpaces support for it by a roughly 2 to 1 margin, with 59 per cent opposing the move and 28 per cent in support. This option will also require a year to execute.

The poll found the US public split along party lines over the move to withdraw from the global climate pact, with most Republicans supporting it and most Democrats opposing it.

69 % of USA voters believe the United States should participate in the agreement. This means that the USA can submit its written notice November 4, 2019, at the earliest. Asserting that in India people worship mountains, trees and rivers as part of a centuries-old tradition of protecting the environment, she said, "that is why whether America stays in or not, India will abide by the accord".

"Trump's withdrawal is a catastrophe for the climate". That's the day after the next presidential election.

"It did not serve their future economic interest either", he added. Parties that join by accession are subject to all the same conditions as parties that joined by signature, and nothing in the rules prevents a nation from joining by signature, withdrawing and then rejoining by accession.

Even in the middle of Vice President Mike Pence's home state of Indiana, South Bend's Mayor Pete Buttigieg tweeted: "One of SB's best job creators is a solar company". Its re-entry would take legal effect just 30 days later. Below is a list of every false claim Trump has made since his inauguration on January 20, 2017. "Whether the USA stays or not, India will continue to remain in the Paris agreement".

"In the absence of leadership from Washington, states, cities, colleges and universities, and businesses representing a sizeable percentage of the US economy will pursue ambitious climate goals, working together to take forceful action and to ensure that the USA remains a global leader in reducing emissions", the parties wrote in an open letter to the world. "We congratulate the other G7 countries that confirmed their recommitment to climate action, all of which would welcome the United States back into the fold if and when [it chooses] to re-enter the accord".

According to Manguiat, there are important negotiations still coming up in the next few years that the US has the potential to influence while it's still a party to the agreement.
