Germany will cooperate with California on climate change goals after the U.S. President Donald Trump's decision earlier this month to withdraw from the 2015 Paris agreement, which was condemned by world leaders and many in the industry. 

Germany and California will jointly support the work of the "Under 2 Coalition" climate group, according to German Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks.
