Burlington Mayor Discusses We Are Still In Climate Mayors' Effort

North Korea Condemns Trump for Leaving Paris Climate Deal, Warns of 'Grave Challenge' to Humankind UMN faculty to Trump: Leaving Paris Agreement will impact US

The bills outlines several strategies, plans, and advancements to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the global treaty's goals.

"Countries around the world must seize the opportunity to unleash this potential, invest in renewable energy that eliminates harmful carbon pollution, and build economies that are more resilient, inclusive and prosperous". This makes the US one of three countries outside of the pact that aims to slow Earth's temperature climb before it reaches two degrees Celsius higher than its preindustrial average. A US energy policy that does not reduce carbon emissions will ultimately harm people in our country and around the world, hurt the national economy, and diminish the worldwide standing of the U.S. Of those to whom much is given, much is expected, and we Americans are blessed with more prosperity and power than most nations.

Bournemouth, and the 596 other Compact of Mayors cities worldwide, have made commitments that are equivalent to reductions of almost one billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually by 2030. The move was criticized not only by environmental activists but also business and municipal concerns.

North Korea wasn't the only body politic to criticize Trump for his decision to pull out of the agreement.

We're glad to see our governor, Andrew Cuomo, lead NY to join with California and Washington in starting a coalition of states committed to upholding their part of the Paris pact.


The U.S.is the world's second largest greenhouse gas emitter and without it, the agreement's temperature goal could be unreachable, said Jessica Hellmann, director of the University's Institute on the Environment.

Nine states - Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont - require capping and trading Carbon dioxide emissions from fossil-fueled power plants 25 megawatts and larger.

The Senators also emphasize that remaining in the Paris agreement will lead to continuous litigation regarding air regulations.

"We have a strong, strong approach to reducing emissions". But polls show most Americans believe climate change is real and affected by humans.

"It's disappointing because it's really taking us backwards instead of moving us forward through time", she said.
