As the U.S. plans to exit the Paris climate deal, President Trump announced that he was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris. But the people are not in support of his decision.

The residents of Pittsburgh have taken to the streets to express their support for efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions and complained that the president, picking out this city of three-thousand, still had an ancient view of the city.

Pittsburgh is now a hub for technology

The industries that once depicted the city as a smoking chimney had all gone extinct over the years and Pittsburgh has become a center for technology, renewable energy generation, advanced learning and health resources. In fact, recently it has diverted its resources towards curbing carbon emissions.

As Trump’s decision undergoes scrutiny, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has reconfirmed his unalloyed loyalty to the 2015 Paris Pact and referred to the president’s action as irresponsible.

The city voted heavily for Hillary Clinton in the last elections, giving her 17 percent more vote than Trump.
