Former New York City mayor and billionaire philanthropist Michael Bloomberg on Sunday promised $4.5 million to fulfill the United States' commitment to the Paris climate agreement.Last June, US President Donald Trump announced the US would withdraw from the pact, championed by his predecessor Barack Obama.Days after the announcement the US was quitting the agreement, Bloomberg led nearly 1,000 business and government officials in declaring they would honor the accord.In January of this year, Trump said he would be willing to sign the US back up to the Paris climate accord, but only if the treaty undergoes major change.Bloomberg said he hoped Trump would change his mind in time for next year's payment due from the US.
