One year after Trump announcement on Paris accord, and climate activists are busy

Friday marked the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s announcement that he was pulling the U.S. out of the global Paris Agreement, and environmental groups are clamoring for others to step up and plug the gap.

A coalition formed shortly after Trump’s announcement to encourage as many participants as possible from the private and public sectors to commit to a “We Are Still In” pledge now has more than 2,750 signatories, according to the sustainability-focused nonprofit Ceres.

The pledge is to stick with the primary goal of limiting the global temperature rise to below 2 degrees annually by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.
