President Donald Trump's administration is poised to announce the United States' withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, USA media reported on Wednesday.

"I will be announcing my decision on Paris Accord, Thursday at 3:00 P.M. The White House Rose Garden".

Multiple news outlets, citing unnamed sources, reported that the president plans to make good on a key campaign promise by removing the U.S. from the 2015 agreement aimed at limiting global warming.

Such a move would be a major break from worldwide partners that would isolate the United States in global efforts to curb global warming. "But we can't win if we step off the playing field and disengage all together".

Jerry Brown on Wednesday called on states to forge an alliance to support the Paris climate deal following reports that President Trump plans to withdraw the United States from the landmark worldwide accord.

The EU-China summit follows a tense global tour by US President Donald Trump in which he spurned pleas by his European counterparts to adhere to the deal.

Europe and China will also expand their cooperation on developing carbon markets, so-called emissions trading systems. Climate action is unstoppable.

Juncker further said that the European stakeholder's attempts to explain the importance of the climate accord have failed.

The two spell out their continued commitment to the deal in a draft joint statement, obtained by CNN, which is slated to be published Friday at an EU-China summit regardless of what Trump announces.

The Paris Agreement is essentially a roadmap for the world's titans of industry and chief polluters to wean themselves off fossil fuels and onto renewables in order to mitigate the compounding effects of climate change.

President Donald Trump is expected to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, CBS News has confirmed.

The U.S. signed the accord in 2015, committing to reducing carbon emissions by 26% to 28% within a decade.

"Whoever becomes the next United Kingdom prime minister, they must now step up on climate action and show that our "special relationship" with the U.S. can not extend to supporting a nation that would so flippantly jeopardise the climate for future generations", he said.

More than 190 countries agreed to the accord in 2015 in Paris.

"We are not only talking about the future of European people, we are first and foremost talking about the future of people elsewhere".

If the USA opts to leave it will leave them aligned only with Russian Federation among the world's industrialised economies to reject the action to combat climate change.

"I understand that if they decide to pull out it will be disappointing but I really don't think this will change the course of mankind", European Commission vice president for energy, Maros Sefcovic, said at a briefing.

"Countries are making decisions in that forum that affect the interests of the United States, and if you're not even there to defend those interests, then you're not fulfilling your duties to the American people", says Bodnar, now the managing director of the Rocky Mountain Institute. A White House official says President Donald Trump is expected to withdraw the United States from the.
