U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that the U.S. will pull out of the Paris climate agreement, the historic global pact promising action to stem climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2° C above preindustrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5° C. Additionally, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change.

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. reacted to the announcement by reaffirming their ongoing commitment to exceed the targets of President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan and curb carbon pollution.
