Oberlin council pledges to adhere to Paris accord standards

Dear Editor: President Trump made the wrong decision for our health and the planet in pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

On behalf of Oglethorpe University located in Brookhaven, GA, President Lawrence Schall has joined a group of some 1,220 governors, mayors, business, investors, colleges and universities who are declaring their intent to uphold a commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement.

As for the Paris Climate Accord, 196 different countries agreed to adopt green energy sources, cut down on emissions and limit the spike in global temperatures. "Together, we can directly contribute to the global agenda of achieving a more resilient and sustainable island Earth", said Ige, in a press release.

Cambodia, a member of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change since 1995, endorsed the Paris deal. Another bill establishes a "Carbon Farming Task Force", which will evaluate agriculture and aquaculture practices for improved soil health and carbon sequestration.

"Events have moved very quickly since Thursday's event when President Trump announced the withdrawal", Councilman Bryan Burgess said.

Trump's decision last week to yank the US from the global pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions prompted widespread rebuke from foreign heads of state, American lawmakers and environmental groups.

But the mayors' article his back at Trump: "Though separated by an ocean and a language, we share a desire to do what is best for our citizens and our planet", the pair wrote. "Climate change is real, regardless of what others say".

Trump said on Thursday that the landmark 2015 climate agreement threatened millions of jobs and productivity, and that he would start a multi-year process to withdraw from the deal, which has been signed by nearly every other nation on Earth.

During Obama's presidency, the United States was one of the 195 countries around the world to sign up to the 2015 agreement.

The US is the only country ever to have left the Paris Agreement - Nicaragua and Syria never signed up in the first place. "President Trump may have pulled out of the Paris climate agreement, but Hawaiʻi is on the frontlines of climate impacts and we remain committed to action".

The isolated dictatorship - one of 195 signatories to the historic climate accord - shamed Trump's "selfish" and "ignorant" exit in a tongue-lashing Tuesday that somehow shoehorned in USA criticism of the North's budding nuclear program.
