Climate decision could accelerate damage to Trump properties

The story said Reed disagreed with President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the pact, but that since he did, it was time to go back to the table and push for a new accord and get Senate ratification, which Reed said would involve a larger number of players. According to news reports, there are about 30 mayors, three governors, more than 80 university presidents and more than 100 businesses who still want to honor the Paris climate accord.

Ige said Hawaii is the first state to enact legislation implementing parts of the Paris climate agreement. The president says that the accord, in which nations agree to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, burdens the USA economy and goes against American interests.

Critics say Trump's move will cost the USA a chance to lead the world in developing clean technology.

I strongly believe it is incumbent on all of us to take action to ensure that the planet will be a safe, healthy environment for our children, grandchildren and all future generations.

However, a non-binding agreement without any enforcement provisions-a description that includes the Paris accord-may fall outside that statute.

The Situation: In a multinational effort to address climate change, almost 200 countries adopted the Paris Climate Accord in late 2015.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement that Canada was "deeply disappointed" that the United States federal government had made a decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.

However, Opposition Leader Jeremy Corbyn accused her of "subservience" to the US President by failing to sign a joint condemnation from France, Germany and Italy.

World leaders immediately reacted to President Trump's move.

The momentum of climate change efforts and the affordability of cleaner fuels will keep the United States moving toward its goals of cutting emissions despite the Trump administration's withdrawal from the Paris global accord, business and government leaders in a growing alliance said. Private industry's position on the Paris Accord was not uniform-many companies support the agreement, but others have noted that the measures required to meet the targets would be too onerous. The decision sparked speculation on possible negative effects it may bring for America's worldwide and economical stature and the environment. "We see the impacts of climate change every day in the streets and homes of our cities - the extreme heat, flooding, and increasing health issues". Corporate giants like Disney, General Electric, Exxonmobil and Chevron maintains their support for the Paris deal. The commitments of American states, cities, organizations and individuals on reducing US greenhouse gas emissions will continue to provide at least half of the cuts promised by ex-president Barack Obama. RGGI is the first mandatory market-based program in the U.S.to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
