Abandoning the accord was one of President Donald Trump's principal campaign pledges.
The White House today insisted that the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord unless it can re-enter on more favourable terms, denying reports that Washington was softening its stance on the landmark agreement.
Responding to the White House's reassurance that the US hasn't changed its mind on the matter, John Coequyt of the Sierra Club issued a statement to HuffPost saying it had lost all hope in Trump's denial of climate change.
"So he's out of the Paris climate accord?"
The Wall Street Journal initially reported Saturday that a White House official had told climate ministers in Montreal that Trump had decided not to pull out of the Paris accord. "The projections now indicate that the United States will meet the commitments made at Paris whether it is affirmed by the federal government or not".
The secondhand remarks suggested a softening stance on the Paris agreement, which Trump vowed to abandon unless he could strike a more favorable deal. He added that in his opinion the emissions targets under the accord were "really out of balance" for the U.S. and China.
As Trump told it in June, he possibility of finding a new agreement seemed unlikely.

Because of the way the Paris agreement was designed, it will take years for the USA to fully exit it. The attendee, who witnessed his comments in person, said Eissenstat simply reiterated the administration's existing position, which is that the USA will continue to engage in climate talks with an eye toward reaching a better deal.
The United States is still withdrawing from the Paris agreement, at least until the carbon emissions pact is revised to be more amenable to the nation's interests.
His comments did not amount to a reversal from US President Donald Trump's widely criticized decision in June to withdraw from the landmark pact, signed by almost 200 countries.
"We want to be productive, we want to be helpful", Tillerson said.
Other countries and world leaders roundly rejected Trump's request to renegotiate the deal, which took years to finalise.
