Liberals and environmentalists on Twitter reacted angrily to the news that President Donald Trump would be pulling out of the Paris climate accords.

Former President Barack Obama signed the accords in 2016, pledging to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. But various outlets reported early in the week that Trump planned to withdraw from the international agreement.

Even before Trump officially made the announcement on Thursday, reactions ranged from angry to apocalyptic.

Billionaire environmentalist and Democratic donor Tom Steyer even said that Trump's actions were an act of war against the American people.

When the White House made the decision official on Thursday, even more reactions flooded in.
