Paris climate agreement was bad for our country

New York, California and 11 other states representing almost 40 percent of the US economy, mayors of about 200 cities, and leaders of business giants including Amazon, Apple and Target have signed pledges to keep reducing their fossil-fuel emissions after President Donald Trump announced he would withdraw the USA from the 2015 Paris climate accord.

The governor and county mayors and their representatives gathered for the signing of two bills and a mayors' agreement that "support the commitments and goals of the Paris climate accord", a news release from the Ige's office said.

"This idea that the Paris Agreement has a negligible impact on future climate change is certainly not what we conveyed and was not the conclusion of our analysis", Monier said. Nicaragua and Syria are the only two countries that have not signed it, and the United States is the only country to have withdrawn from the pact.

Comey was sacked by Trump last month, and the president later said the Russian Federation investigation factored into his decision.

"Reducing greenhouse emissions in Hawaii is now the law - the state law", reports Hawaii Public Radio's Bill Dorman.

North Korea's climate-change condemnation this week, of course, pivoted to slamming the United States' policy toward its nuclear weapons ambitions.

Ige also signed a bill Tuesday to reduce carbon emissions in the agriculture sector.

George Edgar, ambassador of the European Union to Cambodia, said the country is one of the most vulnerable to climate change, adding that the EU was spending millions of dollars on "targeted and ambitious" climate programs in the country. A commission will be created to oversee efforts at every level of the state government to help hit the targets outlined in the Paris 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.

Tek Vannara, executive director of the NGO Forum, said that Trump's "protectionism" would badly affect countries like Cambodia and urged the U.S. to reconsider the move.

Trump's announcement also prompted more than 1,200 business leaders, mayors and college presidents to stress that they planned to continue working towards the goals set in Paris.

Dozens of mayors across the United States have also committed themselves to meeting the terms of the agreement.
