Environmental groups vowing to fight Trump climate actionsBy Norman Carr Apr 01, 2017
Despite threatening to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement to tackle climate change while on the campaign trail Trump has yet to carry through on his threat and it's now anybody's guess whether he will or not.
"Considering family farmers' and ranchers' potential for sinking major amounts of carbon in their soils, agriculture needs to be engaged by the administration and to be a leader in the movement to mitigate climate change", said Johnson.
"The initial decisions from the new U.S. president's administration concerning the battle against global warming constitute a very serious step backwards", he said. China's government said Wednesday, March 29, 2017, it will stick to its promises to curb carbon emissions after President Donald Trump eased US rules on fossil fuel use that were meant to control global warming.
Bloomberg states that he is "confident" the US can meet the commitment it made in Paris in 2015 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are warming the planet, despite any "roadblocks the White House and Congress throw up". The administration had asked Exxon for its views on the Paris accord.
It also remains unclear if the United States will be able to meet its commitments under a climate change accord reached by almost 200 countries in Paris in 2015.
However, after winning the election Trump told The New York Times he has an "open mind" about the Paris agreement and said he believes clean air and "crystal clear water" are important. Climate-change deniers have taken the castle. McCarthy said the only thing that will accomplish will be to turn over the lead on combating climate change to China.

Meanwhile, UNC and OR have played four times, with the Tar Heels winning all four - the last coming in the 2008 Maui Invitational. So who are the 25 Ultimate players remaining in the Final Four? "They're as good as any bigs in the country", Mulkey said.
He expects to decide by late May whether to carry out a campaign promise to withdraw from the 2015 Paris Agreement, reached by nearly 200 nations.
"Claims that the United States will no longer be able to meet its Paris obligations give other countries an excuse to walk away from theirs", he added.
Immelt has managed to avoid conflict with President Trump, who has been known to lash out at companies, especially on Twitter. The U.S. and China are together responsible for some 40 percent of the world's emissions, so their participation in the agreement is crucial for its success.
The country has a thorny path to tread when it comes to climate change.
But Tillerson ducked allegations that Exxon misled the public on climate change. "You're going back to work".
