EU ministers back climate pact, regret Trump withdrawal

This is another example of resistance leading to transformation by ignoring Trump and moving on with positive actions that are vital to our future and the well-being of the planet.

There have been two conflicting responses to Trump's decision - often heard from the very same person.

But what should get ESG fund manager who now invest in US Treasuries anxious, is the fact that a US exit from the Paris Agreement will trigger "the exclusion criterion "Non-Ratification of The Paris Climate Agreement"," said Oekom. Former US Vice President Al Gore says that Trump is damaging "humanity's ability to solve the climate crisis".

The Paris climate accord is nonbinding, but the 195 nations that agreed to it are committed to obtain results.

The President's denial of global warming is getting a cold reception from America's cities.

China is poised to pilot green financing reform in its latest effort to honor commitments on addressing climate change, as decided at the Wednesday executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang.

A great deal. Under Obama, the nation became a global leader on climate change and helped to bring about the almost unanimous agreement to reduce worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, a decision critical to national security, the economy, the environment and public health.

The one thing that is clear from the outset is that there is now more widespread commitment than ever to ensuring that the fight against climate change is fought fiercely by different nations and players across the globe.

Almost 200 countries, including the US, signed the agreement in December 2015. The evidence shows that Kyoto ended up having nearly no effect.

President Trump said the accord imposed "wildly unfair" environmental standards on American businesses and workers. However the American private sector is likely to step up in its quest to reach global markets and push towards price competitiveness as well.

There is nothing new in the politicisation of climate policy or the over-selling of a political agreement. Thanks to a federal and state climate plan there, Germany is now rising as a leader in renewable energy. This, too, is not new. Pat Toomey, a Republican, supported the withdrawal, arguing it would hurt the state's economy and jobs. AND, we have had solar on our house for over 20 years, proving that conservatives are modern forward thinking people, too, and liberals are not the only ones that care for the Earth and our environment. But the Paris agreement itself might just survive. This is not what an economy in the midst of an "inevitable" shift away from fossil fuels looks like. "As Mayors, we commit to protecting the planet that we will leave to the next generations, finding innovative solutions for renewable energy and working so that our communities are kept free of hazardous emissions".

From June 7, Georgias obligations taken through the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change have officially come into play.

She added: "We need to keep up or risk losing out on the huge benefits". The country also ratified the Agreement on 9thDecember, 2016. And it would be much more effective. From 1993 to 2001 he was the longest serving Administrator of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Exclusive to the Sunday Times.
