ATLANTA (AP) -

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed described President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the international climate agreement known as the Paris Accord as "disappointing."

In a statement Wednesday, Reed said the decision "isolates" the United States from international partners in "shared, global efforts to curb climate change, and at its core is an assault on our future stability and prosperity."

Reed noted he joined hundreds of mayor from around the world to support the accord and he remains committed to meeting the agreement's goals. He says

Atlanta will "intensify our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, work to cool the planet by two degrees, ramp up clean energy solutions and seek every opportunity to assert our leadership on this urgent issue."
