These states united to support the Paris climate pact after Trump bailed on the deal

WATCH | Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement, but these states didn't.

Three Democrat governors will not back away from a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions despite President Trump's announcement to withdraw from the Paris deal. Governors from California, New York and Washington formed the U.S. Climate Alliance to uphold the Paris climate agreement. 

Other Democrat-led states have expressed interest in joining the group.  30 U.S. mayors, several businesses and more than 80 university presidents have already joined the group. 

 

Original story:

The Weather Channel didn't hesitate to express its disapproval of President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. 

Shortly after Trump announced the decision, The Weather Channel began trolling the president by posted a slew of articles about climate change on the front page of its website. 

The snarky headlines included:

  • So What Happens to Earth Now?
  • Still Don't Care? Proof You Should
  • ...and More Proof...
  • ...and Even More Proof...
  • ...Or the Imminent Collapse of a Key Ice Shelf...
  • ...Or Antarctica Turning Green
  • ...Or California's Coast Disappearing Into the Sea

Social media quickly took note. 

National Geographic also launched a climate change-themed version of its homepage. 

For 24-hours all climate change stories fell under the headline "Climate Change Is Real - And It’s Dangerous Here Is Evidence.” 

Trump's decision to withdraw from the agreement drew widespread criticism from leaders worldwide, the science community and celebrities. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger was among the celebrities to express his disappointment over the decision. 


“One man cannot destroy our progress, one man can’t stop our clean energy revolution, one man can’t go back in time,” said “The Terminator” star and former governor of California. “Only I can do that.”
