Germany: Climate will last longer than Trump presidency

Germany: Climate will last longer than Trump presidency

If the US chooses to remain outside the accord, then there should be duties charged on American exports based on the amount of fossil fuels used in their manufacture.

It was yet another rebuke to President Donald Trump's decision last week to withdraw from the global accord created to cut the emissions of gases - principally carbon dioxide - that drive global warming. "That is why I am so deeply disappointed at the announcement of President Trump".

Tell the world that of your support for climate action and the Paris climate agreement with the I'm Still In petition. "This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States", he said at the time. "Hawai'i has a tradition of environmental leadership, having prioritized policies regarding conservation, reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and development and use of alternative renewable energy". Science is clear that we have a limited window to reduce emissions before impacts become irreversible. The Obama Administration frequently pointed to the Paris Accord as evidence of the need for, and to provide context for the promulgation of, the Clean Power Plan.

Public forums on the plan will be scheduled throughout 2017. Last week, Trump announced that the United States would be withdrawing from the agreement.

"Pulling out of the Paris Accord is wrong for our country, our children, and the generations to come", Cooper said. Under Article 28 of the agreement, a party may withdraw by providing notice "at any time after three years from the date which this Agreement has entered into force", and "any such withdrawal shall take effect upon expiry of one year" from the notice.

At least a dozen states, including Hawaii, have signed pledges to continue reducing fossil-fuel emissions despite Trump's decision.

Chinese officials also contrasted their stances on climate with Trump's reversal, a connection that Chinese President Xi Jinping did not draw in his meeting with Brown earlier in the week. Many see an abdication of responsibility, while others view it as a campaign pledge met.

THE Philippines is a small contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. After all, climate change results in rising sea levels, and that could devastate Hawaii.

Hawaii has become the first US state to enact legislation to bring its environmental standards in line with the Paris climate accord, officials said on Wednesday, less than a week after President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the global agreement.

The overwhelming majority of climate scientists accept that greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are leading to global-scale warming and related changes to our climate such as more frequent extreme weather events and new precipitation patterns.

According to a new study from Media Matters, a non-profit media research group, out of the 286 guests who went on Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN to discuss climate change on the day Trump announced the withdrawal, and the day after, only 17 percent belonged to a minority race.
