President Donald Trump declared he was pulling the US from the landmark Paris climate agreement, striking a major blow to worldwide efforts to combat global warming and distancing the country from its closest allies abroad. Only China tops America in greenhouse gas emission from fossil fuel combustion and industry, according the Environmental Protection Agency.
