    Many in Bonn are predictably unhappy with President Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement. But, in spite of that, there is a concerted effort from world leaders and leaders of the US economy to keep working to tackle climate change.

    There was much speculation before the start of the latest climate conference in Germany that the promised US pullout of the Paris Agreement may derail the process.

    On the contrary, it appears to have galvanised efforts to lessen the effects of global warming.

    World leaders and representatives of some $6.2 trillion of the US economy come together to declare their determination to keep fighting climate change and abandon dirty fuels.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Clark reports from Bonn, Germany.
