Hawaii Rebuffs Trump, Adopts Paris Agreement Goals Anyway


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

He said he would do that and added, "Because I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know".

He had to admit to Fox News's Chris Wallace, however, that the Paris deal would not stop global warming. This move follows President Donald Trump rescinding USA involvement June 1 in the climate pact, which took a series of 21 meetings for the almost 200 parties to agree on.

Twitter barrage puts spotlight on Trump's outspoken son
Again, count me skeptical because Trump has never shied away from tweeting amid dicey legal and political circumstances before. Trump even publicly claimed their statements couldn't always be accurate, because he's such a dynamic, freewheeling president.


North Korea has vowed to combat deforestation but is viewed as increasingly vulnerable to climate change, given the country's frequent food shortages.

The statement was coordinated by a number of organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund, the Center for American Progress, and Michael Bloomberg's Bloomberg Philanthropies, which has also promised up to $15 million to help support the Agreement following the US' exit.

In December 2015, then-foreign minister Ri Su Yong told delegates in Paris that the North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un had "declared war on deforestation" and that the country aimed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by "37.4 percent compared with the levels of the 1990s".

Warriors have 'eyes set on' 16-0 playoff perfection
Q: Was there anything different in their scheming that allowed you guys to roll to the basket and get your hand on some balls? . The scary part for Golden State rivals is that the Warriors feel they can get even better.


Mr Trump's decision, based on the deal being bad for American jobs, was met with scorn and condemnation both at home and overseas, with isolated North Korea among the latest to join the chorus. Under this pact, nations around the world would work together to keep the planet's average temperature from rising. The climate change agreement is about protecting the future of humanity.

Murray, a coal industry veteran, says Trump's move supports coal jobs in the USA and was the "right thing to do for America and the world".

However strongly Trump is disliked by huge swaths of his own country, he's still a far cry from a figure like Kim Jong-un, who now presides over a network of starvation-inducing concentration camps containing tens of thousands of political prisoners.

In First Since Trump Speech, Haley Says President Believes Climate Is Changing
The Russian president joked that people can now blame the ill effects of global warming on Trump and America. Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway says the question should be put to Trump himself.


Some studies suggest the United States will cut emissions as much as 19 percent by 2025 if it simply moves forward as is, he said. The governors behind the alliance say states can meet the goals of the accord without hurting their economies. With the sharing of information, we need to continue and lobby for climate action everywhere for the sake, primarily, of places like the Maldives.
