He argued against Trump's plans to resurrect coal mining, saying "it's time for President Trump to join the rest of the world, not oppose it" on climate change.

French President Emmanuel Macron has warned the worldwide community that it was losing the battle against global warming and called on the world leaders to take concrete action.

The French president said: "I'm sorry to say that, it doesn't fly, so, so sorry but I think it is a big responsibility in front of the history, and I'm pretty sure that my friend President Trump will change his mind in the coming months or years, I do hope".

The International Energy Agency estimates that investments of some $3.5 trillion (3 trillion euros) per year in the energy sector are needed until 2050 to meet the 2015 Paris Agreement goal of limiting average global warming to two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) over pre-Industrial Revolution levels.

Macron repeatedly tried to persuade the United States leader to reverse his decision.

"We will be there to replace" U.S. financing of climate research, Macron said in Paris on Monday.

Macron, who has worked to establish his role as a global leader since his sweeping election win in May, said modern-day science was revealing with each day the danger that global warming posed to the planet.

But he called the withdrawal "extremely aggressive" and said Trump's offer to renegotiate the accord was not an option.

When it comes to climate change, all leaders are in the same boat.

Paris: French president Emmanuel Macron delivered a bleak assessment on the global fight against climate change to dozens of world leaders and company executives on Tuesday, telling them: "We are losing the battle".

Developing nations say that the rich are not on track with a broader commitment in the Paris accord for wealthy economies to provide $100 billion a year by 2020 - from public and private sources alike - to help developing countries switch from fossil fuels to greener energy sources and adapt to the effects of climate change.

"Right now, the world's poorest people are getting only a tiny fraction of the help they desperately need to survive", Oxfam said in a statement.
