Michael Bloomberg 'to write $  4.5m cheque to cover US commitment to Paris climate agreement'Billionaire former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has said he will write a $ 4.5m cheque to cover the US’s financial commitment to the Paris Climate agreement for 2018. Donald Trump pulled the US out of the climate pact last year, saying it was a “terrible deal” which would “undermine” the economy and put the US at a “permanent disadvantage”. The move made the US the only country in the world opposed to the climate change agreement which aims to cut carbon emissions in an effort to restrict global temperature rises to less than 2C by the end of this century.
