Climate deal pull-out may speed up damage to Trump property

The governor's office said that SB 559 expanded "strategies and mechanisms" to cut greenhouse gas emissions across the state "in alignment with the principles and goals adopted" in the Paris Agreement.

Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris agreement on climate change has outraged a number of politicians on all sides of the political arena here in the United States.

Hawaii's chairman of the agriculture and environment committee, Mike Gabbard, was not surprised that the state would be signing the law.

"Many of the greatest challenges of our day hit us first, and that means that we also need to be first when it comes to creating solutions", Ige said.

"We are the testing grounds", he continued.

The US Energy Information Administration's data from nine north-eastern states, including NY, showed a dramatic shift in the past 10 years with coal-fired electricity generation falling from 31 per cent to 11 per cent of the energy mix, and cleaner natural gas almost doubling its share. We asked some Chapman experts for their reactions to the decision and to look ahead to its possible impact.

Portland Mayor Ethan Strimling says it's time for action on climate change. Ige joined the alliance on Friday.

Climate change is already harming the health of people in the United States and worldwide through degraded air quality, heat waves, droughts, extreme storms, disease outbreaks and more.

Many European leaders were shocked by Trump's behavior during the recent G7 summit, his lack of support for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and then his announcement about the Paris accord. "If the President is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up". But they are optimistic about the backlash to Mr Trump's decision.

Trump, don't worry. The world isn't laughing at America, actually, we are started to feel kind of sorry for it. Trump, the world is laughing at you.

South Africa, hereby, joins countries as diverse as North Korea and USA neighbour, Canada. North Korea, people! Take a deep breath and consider this for a moment.

Since winning the U.S. presidency, Trump has been heavily criticized by numerous media outlets from North Korea, including KCNA, which at one time called the U.S. President "a mere novice insofar as its ignorance of its rival (North Korea) was concerned". "The Paris climate accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States, to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers, who I love, and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production", he said.
