Big US companies stay on White House panel despite climate jolt

On Friday, French officials released a video that re-edited a previous 40-second video put out by the Trump administration that denigrated the Paris climate change agreement. "If he did believe in it, he wouldn't have pulled out of Paris".

Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, reportedly made the statement on a program scheduled for telecast on Sunday.

Now with the decision by the largest economy to pull out of an global accord on climate change, the ripple effect for the prospect of renewable energy will surely be felt across the globe, said John Sterman, professor at the Sloan School of Management of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Trump argued that the regulations former President Obama imposed to carry out this pledge hurt us workers, but said he was open to renegotiating the deal if it could be reworked to benefit them.

The White House hit back on Friday at criticism of Donald Trump's decision to scrap a major global climate deal, accusing Europe of trying to "shackle" the USA economy and refusing to acknowledge climate change is real.

And then this week, he pulled the United States out of the Paris climate deal, which includes every other nation in the world except Syria and Nicaragua.

Scottish Episcopal church votes to allow same sex weddings
The Scottish Episcopal Church is Scotland's third largest church, and had over 54,000 ergistered members. They voted in favor of removing the note that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Pruitt on Sunday defended Trump's decision to leave the Paris accord after weighing what the impact on jobs and the environment will be.

The 2015 Paris agreement established a global target for lowering greenhouse-gas emissions - aimed at keeping the atmosphere from warming by 2 degrees Celsius.

Mr Trump announced the withdrawal on Thursday, tapping into his "America First" campaign.

Gore met with Trump in December at Trump Tower and called him as recently as last month, urging him to not withdraw from the Paris accord. And so that's as clear as I know to give it.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the newspaper that "We're going to do everything America would have done if it had stayed committed".

Liverpool end interest in Virgil van Dijk, apologise to Southampton
Van Dijk is under contract at Southampton until 2022, which has given the Saints leverage in negotiations. In May 2016, he signed another six-year contract that sees his current deal run till the summer of 2022.

Trump also has set about dismantling the legacy of his predecessor Barack Obama, on policies from healthcare to environmental protection, and he has launched a major deregulation push. "I mean, that's what he believes".

Other Trump administration members have outright dodged this issue.

Some local leaders in those same communities Trump said he was looking out for, including Pittsburgh, charged that Trump didn't represent their community views. Cuomo said in a statement, "As the federal government abdicates its responsibility to address climate change", NY was leading the nation in advancing "a clean energy future".

"To everyone for whom the future of our planet is important, I say let's continue going down this path so we're successful for our Mother Earth", she said to applause from lawmakers.

China is likely to set up military base in Pak: Pentagon
But Pakistan, the USA report noted, was already the primary market in the Asian-Pacific region for Chinese arms exports. However, officials admitted that figure could not account for all spending due to poor accounting transparency.
