Princeton mayor announces support of Paris climate agreement

18 June 2017

The reclusive regime, which has backed the Paris accord in one of the rare instances of cooperation with the worldwide community, argued that Trump's "America First Policy" has led to what it called a "short-sighted and silly decision" that is "ignorant of the fact that the protection of the global environment is in their own interests".

"The Trump administration's announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world's ability to avoid the most risky and costly effects of climate change", the "We Are Still In" letter said.

David Ige aligns the state's goals with the Paris climate accord.

"A conflict in North Korea, John, would be probably the worst kind of fighting in most people's lifetimes", Mattis told CBS News' "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson back in May.

Ige said Hawaii's status as the lone island state makes it particularly prone to the effects of climate change. J. Kalani English said in the statement.

"This is our chance to show the world that Canadians are innovative and forward-thinking by prioritizing renewable energy and upholding our global commitments to act on climate change for the sake of people now and into the future".

"We will also continue to reach out to the U.S. federal government to discuss this matter of critical importance for all humankind, and to identify areas of shared interest for collaboration, including on emissions reductions", he said.

"Global warming is one of the gravest challenges that humankind is facing today", it said, ABC reported.

According to the World Wildlife Fund South Africa, the Paris Agreement, which was approved in December 2015, commits almost 200 countries to pursue all efforts to limit the global temperature increasing by only 1.5°C, to stave off some of the worst impacts of a warming planet.

At least a dozen states, including Hawaii, have signed pledges to continue reducing fossil-fuel emissions despite Trump's decision. Other countries have already successfully implemented a carbon fee and dividend plan.

North Korea previously issued a "declaration of war" against deforestation, and the country reportedly embraces renewable energy. "The U.S. solar industry alone creates one in 50 new jobs".
