DE was among 10 states to join the U.S. Climate Alliance Monday, a movement to adhere to the Paris Accord at a state level in spite of President Donald Trump's withdrawing from the worldwide climate change-combating initiative. It's also not impossible that Trump might change his mind, given that some of his closest advisors (not least his own daughter Ivanka) strongly support the US's involvement in the Agreement - Trump himself has left the door open by saying that he's willing to seek "better terms" for the USA being part of the deal. The effort comes a week after Republican President Donald Trump said he is withdrawing the United States from the Paris compact, an agreement involving almost 200 nations aimed at slowing the warming of the planet.
The reactions also break down sharply among partisan lines, though Republicans are not as united in support of the withdrawal as Democrats are in opposition of it.
Trump had singled out the South Asian country during a speech last week outlining his decision to end United States involvement in the landmark climate deal.
As a low-carbon industry with some much to offer on a global scale, we shouldn't spend too long mourning Trump's decision. Almost 200 countries are part of the accord and have agreed to fight global warming by reducing carbon emissions.

"I think the rest of the world would like to tell us how to manage our own environment and I think that anybody in America can tell you that we're best to decide what America should do".
Sir, - President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris climate agreement has been greeted with a chorus of disapproval around the world.
But the petty, peevish Trump had to get even.

A slight majority, 51 percent, think Trump's decision will do more to hurt worldwide efforts to address climate change, compared to just 11 percent who think it will help.
Trump announced his decision to leave the accord last week, saying it's a job-killer for Americans. Republicans were more optimistic than Democrats on that question, with 77% of participants saying it would help the U.S. economy and 12% saying it would hurt.
The effort was organized by more than a dozen groups, including the Center for American Progress and Mike Bloomberg's Bloomberg Philanthropies.
