Hawaii Signs Legislation To Implement Goals Of Paris Climate Accord Anyway

Lucia Summers | 14 June, 2017, 06:58

The CEO of Murray Energy is applauding U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, and says he's not impressed with how Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who supports the accord, is leading the country.

"The "America First Policy" advocated by Trump led to the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement", a foreign ministry spokesperson said in a statement released through the state-owned Korean Central News Agency.

Dear Editor: President Trump made the wrong decision for our health and the planet in pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Trump's announcement that the United States would withdraw from the global accord drew ridicule from foreign leaders around the world and made the USA one of only three countries not signed up to the accord, the others being Nicaragua and Syria.

Ige also signed a bill Tuesday to reduce carbon emissions in the agriculture sector.

Trump said on Thursday that the landmark 2015 climate agreement threatened millions of jobs and productivity, and that he would start a multi-year process to withdraw from the deal, which has been signed by nearly every other nation on Earth.

French see no one to counter Macron, set to sweep parliament
Prime Minister Philippe urged French voters to improve on Sunday's turnout, stressing the importance of going out to vote. The result would give Macron one of the largest parliamentary majorities since the end of the Second World War.

"Hawaii's natural environment is under threat", Ige said.

Peduto said he was joining a coalition that intends to uphold the Paris Agreement called Mayors for 100% Clean Energy.

The worldwide agreement, signed by 195 countries, vowed to cut emissions and prevent the global temperature from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius.

But now, the mayors of the two cities say they are working together to form "their own climate deal" and are "more united than ever".

"I think it's very important that we state how we feel about this bad thing that our president has done, again", Councilman Kelley Singleton said. The United States is now among only three countries globally who have opted to not participate in the accord.

Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency administrator, and Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, differed over whether the president believes climate change is man-made.

Republicans are also prone to believe the president's move will result in economic benefits, with more than three-quarters saying that leaving the 200-member accord will help the economy and 73 percent saying it will create more jobs like those in the fossil fuel industry.
