California to discuss linking carbon market with China

03 Juin, 2017, 15:33 | Author: Marc Bacque

The priority, according to Ms Merkel, was for the other signatories to renew their commitment to the "indispensable" climate agreement and address the challenge of global warming. China has been examining a similar ZEV policy since last year, but has faced a backlash over a suggested policy that 8 percent of new vehicles sold next year meet the ZEV standard, called "new energy vehicles" in China.

On Tuesday, Spicer was asked if President Trump believes in climate change.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson downplayed the significance of the US pullout from the Paris climate pact, arguing Friday that America still will continue taking steps to cut heat-trapping pollution.

It should be clear that the decision to pull out leaves the USA not just in league with those opposed to science and technology, but also hampers chances of ability to compete in technologies that address a challenge common to humankind.

It's not unlike Trump to go against what people are advising him to do, but there's something highly symbolic in the USA president shunning the leaders of Earth's largest innovation center. The March for Truth is one of more than 140 such rallies taking place across the country tomorrow.

California has the largest carbon trading system in the United States and has frequently hosted officials from China, which has launched seven pilot regional trading schemes.

In a sign of how significantly California's climate debate differs from the one in Washington, business groups and oil companies have supported a cap and trade extension, at least with restrictions.

"It's going to take some Republicans here". As "Earth's second-largest polluter", according to the Times, the USA and the world can't really afford climate change deniers right now.

On Thursday, he announced he'll work with the governors of NY and Washington state to form the U.S. Climate Alliance to uphold the American commitments under the Paris agreement.

He added that, with Trump's decision, China is now the sole pillar in this area, and that California will be working with China, in defiance of the Trump administration, to "achieve our mutual goals". And he pointed out that Trump has merely served to demonstrate that climate denial has "no integrity and no future".

The California governor has also been critical of the Trump administration blocking President Obama's approval of the 2022-2025 phase in the Environmental Protection Agency's fuel economy and emissions rules.

MELBER: Governor, we've talked policy. As you know, the president really emphasized in his remarks today that he was doing this for Pittsburgh, not Paris.

BROWN: I've never seen any survey that would substantiate that. The exact opposite. So Mr. Trump is wrong on jobs, wrong on the facts, wrong on science, wrong on public opinion.

"And by strengthening global action over time, the Agreement reduces future climate damage to people and organizations around the world", Smith wrote. "He said things like 'The Paris Agreement threatens our sovereignty.' It does not".

In November, hundreds of USA companies demanded in an open letter that Trump keep America's promise to the world and remain in the Paris pact.
