U.S. 'on the wrong side of history' on climate: French UN envoy

Sen. J. Kalani English, the senate majority leader who introduced SB 559, said the the state law will give lawmakers a "legal basis to continue adaption and mitigation strategies" for the state, "despite the Federal government's withdrawal from the treaty".

Jerry Brown (D) is going to great lengths to oppose President Trump's plans to pull the US out of the Paris climate accord. We must acknowledge these realities at home.

The signers agree the Paris Agreement is a blueprint for job creation, stability and global prosperity and that accelerating the US transition to clean energy is an opportunity - not a liability - to create jobs, spur innovation, promote trade and ensure American competitiveness.

Like other African countries, South Africa's response to its United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) commitments are not directly influenced by the departure of the U.S., Chademana said.

Hawaii on Tuesday, June 7, 2017 became the first state in the country with laws that implement portions of the Paris climate deal.Gov. David Ige signed two laws that aim to reduce greenhouse emissions and mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration, a process to store atmospheric carbon monoxide.


All of the largest economies in the world, including China, Russia, Germany and Japan, remain in the Paris Climate Accord, and are not afraid to commit their countries to solving environmental problems.

"Our next major undertaking is to engage our community in the development of a Climate Action Plan", Carvalho said.

Tek Vannara, executive director of the NGO Forum, said that Trump's "protectionism" would badly affect countries like Cambodia and urged the USA to reconsider the move. "By working together, we can stem the worst impacts of climate change and at the same time assure that our families and businesses thrive".

Both bills were signed into law Friday in Honolulu. The members represent more than 1.18 billion people and US$27.5 trillion GDP - equivalent to 16 percent of the global population and 37 percent of the global economy.

"We're on the road to a very negative and disastrous future unless we increase the tempo of change", he added, comparing the fight to efforts to defeat fascism during World War II.
