San Diego Will Ignore Trump and Fight Climate Change Anyway


06 June, 2017

Bloomberg Philanthropies said Friday it will pull together $15 million to "support the operations" of the United Nation's Framework Convention on Climate Change, the arm of the UN that coordinates the Paris pact.

On Friday, French President Emmanuel Macron delivered the first take-down of Trump, calling his decision to pull out of the Paris accord a "mistake" that threatens the world.

In the USA, it is local and state governments, along with businesses, that are primarily responsible for the dramatic decrease in greenhouse gas emissions in recent years.

Gore said at the time the Clinton White House agreed with that position and it became the policy of the United States for the entire period the Kyoto accord was in effect - right up to its official demise at the end of 2012. At this time, Pruitt added fuel to this fire by refusing to say whether or not Trump believes in climate change at all - even after being asked about it three times, CNBC reported. "I promised I would exit or renegotiate any deal which fails to serve America's interests".

"Donald Trump said he was elected by voters of Pittsburgh, but his misguided decision to withdraw from the Paris climate does not reflect the values of our city", said Peduto.

WH communications director Michael Dubke resigns
US President Donald Trump's communications director, Mike Dubke, is set to leave after three months in his White House post . Spicer discussed ongoing possible connections to Jared Kushner and Russians as well as the president's worldwide trip.

Leaders in the outdoor industry publicly opposed President Donald Trump's national monuments executive order in April, and today, players in the market took on another controversial move by the president.

While on the campaign trail, Trump called climate change a "hoax" that was invented by the Chinese. Some of the mayors and leaders in those states have spoken out against the decision. They warned that if nothing is done, global temperatures could rise by as much as five degree Celsius by 2100.

He warned against making a fuss over the USA exit from the Paris deal and urged to establish conditions for joint work, reports Sputnik news agency.

Protests against President Trump's decision to pull the US out of Paris accord. Two post-election surveys conducted by the Yale Program for Climate Communication found that more than two-thirds (69%) of registered voters believed the US should honor the Paris climate agreement-including almost half of Trump voters (47 percent). It's who we are. "So I think we're going to continue to be the world's leader in it".

This all illustrates the key point - as far as the climate is concerned, what matters is not what Trump says or does, but how the rest of America and the rest of the world responds, both politically and practically.
