The Paris climate accord was shunned by President Trump.
In the United States, a group of one thousand business and government leaders have declared their intent to honor the Paris climate accord, which was shunned by President Trump.
Former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg who leads the group said in a statement that American society remains committed to achieving the emission reductions it pledged to make in Paris in 2015.
The group calls Trump's decision to pull the US out of the climate accord a grave mistake.
