Hawaii leaders sign bills in support of Paris agreement

SUNx has been established precisely to help Travelism (Travel & Tourism ) communities and stakeholders respond to the harsh reality of eXistential Climate Change - increasingly volatile and extreme weather: floods: droughts: heatwaves: famines: disease and mass migration.

The Governor of California, the largest state in the usa, took opposition to Mr. Trump's about-turn on the Paris Agreement a step further when he travelled to China for conference on climate warming at about the same time the President was making his announcement. The effect of the walkaway sends the startling message that our country is not committed to combating climate change or curbing carbon emissions.

The agreement, which was first signed by world leaders in December 2015, was the first global commitment to fight climate change.

The withdrawal from the 190-plus nation pact of the world's biggest carbon emitter after China is, "in everybody's mind, catastrophic", Albert told a news conference.

Trump's decision has left the United States as one of only three countries, along with Syria and Nicaragua, that are not part of the climate pact.

The poll was conducted after Trump announced on Thursday that the United States would abandon the landmark agreement with 195 countries to slash carbon emissions and curb global warming. Trump said he will "renegotiate".

America's business leaders did not hold back in their reactions to President Trump's speech on the Paris Agreement: Elon Musk, the head of electric carmaker Tesla, immediately resigned from his position on the president's advisory council.

"It is high time the world stopped pondering over the unsafe ideological trend which is surfacing in the US with the emergence of the Trump administration, but raised alarm and stayed highly vigilant about it".

He said in the Bloomberg interview that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed "clean energy technology, trade and investment, open trading rules and a general spirit of getting things done together and in collaboration", adding the two men spoke about Chinese investment in infrastructure projects in California. Trump's decision to pull out of the climate deal has triggered heavy criticism and many states have vowed to stick to the agreement nonetheless.

"Hawaii's natural environment provides foundation of livelihood, yet it is under threat", Ige said.

"They're not sitting there and making a one-to-one: Trump down, China up", he said Tuesday of his talks with Chinese officials.

What's left for us to learn is whether Trump will take any action against this growing movement.
