Billionaire, and former New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg would like for you to know that, despite Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement, he’s absolutely intent upon imposing the environmental ‘tax’ contemplated in the agreement on you anyway. As such, he’s developing a coalition of U. S. states, cities and business leaders to defy the President’s decision and comply with the terms of the original deal.
Billionaire philanthropist and businessman Michael Bloomberg is defying President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate change agreement, saying he is rallying a bipartisan coalition of states, cities and business leaders to meet the climate pact’s targets even as the president rescinds the nation’s commitment to it. “Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement,” Bloomberg said on Thursday. “Just the opposite – we are forging ahead. Mayors, governors, and business leaders from both political parties are signing on to to a statement of support that we will submit to the U. N. – and together, we will reach the emission reduction goals the United States made in Paris in 2015.”
