"At the same time, we will continue to resolutely be a protector and promoter of the global climate system process, proactively participating in the multilateral climate change process", Hua said. Rising sea levels, more powerful storms, disruptions to agriculture and spread of tropical diseases are all expected consequences of increased global temperatures. And what would a withdrawal mean for the rest of the world - both now and in the long-term?
Trump could decide as early as this week whether the United States will remain in the historic Paris Agreement, which reflects a voluntary commitment by the world's governments to reduce their carbon emissions.
China and the United States are together responsible for some 40 percent of the world's emissions and experts have warned that it is vital for both to remain in the Paris agreement if it is to have any chance of succeeding.
The party that ignores the reality of climate change has enabled the current administration with its contempt for expertise, its leadership of agencies by opponents of those agencies' missions, and its general disregard of reality.
"Climate change is a global challenge". Democrats just want to bash Trump, no matter what he does or how inconsistent their message is.
Almost 200 nations, including the United States, agreed in 2015 to voluntarily reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to combat climate change.
Some executives from coal companies have weighed in, arguing the US should stay in with reduced emissions cuts targets, with an eye toward ensuring that Washington keeps some influence over the future of the global energy mix.
Uber fires self-driving vehicle chief accused of stealing Google's tech
Yoo writes that Levandowski's failure to comply with the court order constitutes a potential "breach" of the employment agreement. Uber wants to develop a fleet of self-driving cars so its service eventually won't have to rely on people to pick up passengers.
The EU's climate commissioner, Miguel Arias Cañete, told the Guardian: "The EU and China are joining forces to forge ahead on the implementation of the Paris agreement and accelerate the global transition to clean energy".
But some scientists have pointed out even with the agreement in place, halting global warming at two degrees might be unattainable.
"We are going to show them that implementing our targets is very positive for the economy, very positive for developing sophisticated technological advances and it is very positive for the welfare of the citizens", he said.
"We don't expect that this will have any impact on PNM", company spokesman Pahl Shipley told the Journal.
Many economists have big doubts. Under the pact, the United States committed to reducing its emissions by 26 to 28 per cent from 2005 levels by 2025. If anything, we hope to see China and India stepping up the pace.
Typically, liberals say climate change is the most egregious and alarming cataclysm this world has ever come to know.
Sky's US Correspondent Amanda Walker said: "His daughter Ivanka Trump has been trying to encourage him to stay in the deal".
