President Trump may have pulled the U.S. out, but Apple, Amazon, Google, Lyft and Spotify are among hundreds of U.S. businesses teaming up with state and local regulators to pledge their support for the Paris climate agreement as part of a new campaign debuting today, reports recode.
The effort is dubbed “We Are Still In” and comes days after President Donald Trump announced his plans to withdraw from the pact, a landmark accord signed in 2015 by roughly 190 nations that seeks to reduce the world’s carbon emissions. The coalition will be led by Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, recode adds.
On a lighter note, here’s a climate related joke, courtesy of Nashville DJ Gerry House: though President Trump has announced plans to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, he has made one concession: he will quit using Right Guard aerosol deodorant and switch to Ban Roll-On.
Drum roll, please.
