"In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the USA will withdraw from the Paris climate accord", Trump said. "I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack". It is time for the federal government to stop using other people's money to subsidize energy technologies while choking stable energy sources with red tape. The agreement would also focus on lowering greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. It's not a given that these bills will pass-California has struggled this year to address negative pricing and imbalances in the electricity market that have made regulators worry about upsetting the boat too much with new renewable energy-but if they do pass, it would send a signal about the urgency with which lawmakers are willing to address climate change. Thank you, President Trump.
Mayor Bob Buckhorn of Tamp and his across the bay counterpart St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman on Friday joined the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda's effort to "adopt, honor and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement".
David Rank, the charge d'affaires of the US Embassy in Beijing, has left the State Department, apparently over Washington's decision to quit the 2015 Paris agreement to fight climate change.
I support President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, which would have cost billions of dollars and hampered our economy.
This week, acting United States ambassador to China David Rank resigned from his post in Beijing over Trump's decision to withdraw.

With 3:23 left, Nashville sealed the victory with Filip Forsberg's empty-net goal, as "Rocky Top" played in Bridgestone Arena. Still, people filled three blocks of Broadway, even with Nashville opening up a downtown amphitheater for fans to watch.
Trump says pulling out of Paris climate accord best for US
So even if the USA were to withdraw from the accord, many said the U.S.is not likely to stop reducing its carbon pollution. While traveling overseas last week, Trump was repeatedly pressed to stay in the deal by European leaders and Pope Francis.
Trump waives law requiring US move its embassy to Jerusalem
He has approved a waiver to defer relocating the embassy, as his predecessors have done every six months since 1995. Israel captured the area from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war and claims all the city as its eternal capital.
Similar to the disastrous Iran treaty of appeasement, Obama called the Paris deal by another name to get around constitutional restrictions on the power of the executive branch.
"America is $20 trillion in debt, millions of citizens are out of work, yet under the Paris Accord millions of US dollars that ought to be invested right here are going to countries that have taken our factories", said Trump.
Of course, the real agenda of the Paris agreement is to further the United Nations scheme for statist control of the world's economy - control that would benefit Europe and China at the expense of the U.S.
California and China are both investing heavily in wind energy. It's increasingly looking like it's not America alone on the world stage - it's the President.
It is imperative that the world know that in the US, the actors that will provide the leadership necessary to meet our Paris commitment are found in city halls, state capitals, colleges and universities and businesses.
