In the wake of President Trump's recent announcement to pull the United States out of the 2015 Paris climate change agreement, many U.S. cities, states, and corporations are stepping in and pledging to abide by the country's prior commitment to combat climate change.

This article from Inside Climate News details the dozens of cities and states---representing nearly one-third of the country's population---and well over 1,000 U.S.-based corporations, that are already vowing to uphold the Paris Agreement's commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, less than a week after the President announced his intention to withdraw the country from the accord.
