States and cities stand with Paris, not Trump

The rally comes a week after the Trump administration announced the USA would withdraw from the accord. "We in good faith, the European Union, the U.S. under the previous (Barack Obama) administration, China, India and several other countries, subscribed to the Paris agreement". "North Carolina's commitment to clean air and a healthy environment will remain a priority despite the lack of forward thinking leadership from the current administration". Climate issues are global challenges.

Lehigh University has joined the growing list of colleges, cities, states, businesses and investors that have declared they will take steps to uphold the United States' commitment to the Paris agreement on climate change.

Branson cited last October's historic agreement by 24 countries and the European Union to create the world's largest marine protected area in the Ross Sea next to Antarctica.

Local environmentalists held what they deemed an emergency rally Thursday to demonstrate their opposition to President Trump's decision to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Accord. "Accordingly, we strongly encourage you to make a clean break from the Paris Agreement".

Environmental activists rallied in Portland Thursday to urge Maine's local and state leaders to support the Paris climate agreement.

The Paris agreement on climate change has set out a global action plan to combat the risky effects of climate change.

The town's climate change successes to date include helping to reduce residents' annual carbon dioxide emissions from home, business, and transport energy use, from 5.6 tonnes per person in 2005 to 3.6 tonnes in 2016.

An overwhelming majority of scientists say human activity - including the burning of oil, gas and coal - is the main driver of rising global temperatures.

The City has set a greenhouse gas emission reduction target of 26-28 percent by 2025 and 80 percent by 2050.

Conservative members of the NC House said that while the economy is priority No. 1, they aren't ignoring the environment, citing House Bill 589, which would ease some of the subsidies and mandates for the renewable energy industry.
