"With the Trump Administration's inexcusable withdrawal from the Paris agreement, it is imperative that towns and cities take the lead on climate action", Lempert said in a statement this week. We are targeting our senators, Sen.

Lehigh President John Simon signed "We Are Still In", an open letter to the worldwide community that has been signed by hundreds of cities, colleges and businesses across the country.

The City of Iowa City is committed to reducing the effects of climate change. President Donald Trump announced that the US would withdraw from that accord last week. The other creates a task force charged with cutting carbon emissions in the agricultural sector. A USA 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 global standing of the U.S.

"House Republicans are focused on North Carolina's energy future and the best interests of our citizens ... by moving legislation that has broad support from renewable power developers, utilities, and ratepayer protection groups alike", said Joseph Kyzer, a spokesman for NC House Speaker Tim Moore.

Not only members of the European Union countries have rejected Trump's offer to renegotiate the agreement, also in the USA some states are themselves recoiling from the polluter-in-chief decision.

"California has the second highest after Hawaii in terms of electricity prices in the country, and of course the second highest gasoline after Hawaii", Hiatt said.

"You're going to need to retrain them (workers), and two, more than likely, they're going to need to move", Hiatt said.

The Paris Agreement, signed by 195 nations in December 2015, set the global goal to keep the planet from warming by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, a threshold that scientists say could keep the planet from launching into irreversible consequences like unpredictable super storms and crippling heat waves.

"Unless they get a critical mass of states it's not feasible", he said. "It is clear that those advocating for greenhouse gas regulations will use the Paris Agreement as a legal defense against your actions to rescind the Clean Power Plan if you decide to remain in the Paris Agreement". It is cheaper than coal, and will reduce emissions.
