World reaction to Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate accord

Cities across the world protested President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Agreement, illuminating buildings in green in solidarity with the 194 nations that remain committed to the climate change accord. (Trump Tower, on New York’s Fifth Avenue, was its usual color.)

In addition to lighting buildings green, several American cities, including New York and Chicago, have pledged to uphold the Paris Agreement on their own. When the U.S. officially leaves the Paris Agreement in 2020, it will join Syria and Nicaragua as the only nations that are not part of the deal.

Several other cities around the world also lit buildings and monuments in green to show their support of the agreement.
