Hawaii Rebels Against Trump On Paris Climate Accord

"The US withdrawing from the Paris Agreement will delay the transition and could lead to temperatures peaking at higher levels, with concurrent climate change impacts on millions of people, but it cannot stop the economic transformation that is already underway", reads a statement from WWF South Africa, released last week after Trump's announcement.

President Donald Trump announced last week the USA will withdraw from the agreement.

Trump's administration was lambasted by world leaders for the decision to leave the Paris agreement, signed by 194 other countries in 2015.

Conservative members of the NC House said that while the economy is priority No. 1, they aren't ignoring the environment, citing House Bill 589, which would ease some of the subsidies and mandates for the renewable energy industry.

The missive takes a strong stance against the USA, typical for the secretive regime.

We strongly encourage the President to reconsider this decision, and to restore the U.S.'s full participation in this essential global agreement.

Schumer asked McConnell whether there would be sufficient time to review and debate the legislation. But it is not yet clear how or whether he can get the 50 votes he will need to pass the bill.

"The president is turning his back on states that voted for him", Bruce said.

Lehigh University has joined the growing list of colleges, cities, states, businesses and investors that have declared they will take steps to uphold the United States' commitment to the Paris agreement on climate change.

Portland Mayor Ethan Strimling says it's time for action on climate change. So even though the USA administration is out, the world continues to move ahead. The United States' commitment to the agreement signals to the world that this is a critical issue and that we all must play a role in reducing emissions and shifting to new energy sources. "This current decision will not stand".

"Pulling out of the Paris Accord is wrong for our country, our children, and the generations to come", Cooper said.

Since Trump's decision, 257 mayors across the country have made pledges similar to Lempert's and have formed a network called Mayors National Climate Action Agenda (MNCAA), according to the statement.

China rivals the U.S.in emission rates, but it also has invested heavily in renewable energy, making it a potential partner for a number of American tech companies. Not only are rural communities likely to suffer some of the worst consequences of climate change, but we will miss out on opportunities to shape the direction of global policy and markets.
