While President Trump has made clear to the world that his administration will not support the Paris climate agreement, former Vice President Al Gore says he still has hope as a surge of activism has sprung up in reaction to Mr. Trump’s policies.

“Even though President Trump announced he was going to pull out of the Paris agreement, the very next day the world doubled down on their commitment,” said Gore on “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday.

Gore applauded the work of state governors and local mayors who are committedto combatting the effects of climate change, saying, “It now looks as if the U.S. has an excellent chance to meet our commitments under the agreement, regardless of President Trump.”
