  • County unanimous in vote on climate accords

Educate yourself to the reality of climate change through the Citizen's Climate Lobby:

The city of Lawrence, under the sustainability division, created a plan to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and laying out a list of goals to control climate change.

A United Nations logo is pictured at the Grand Palais during the Solutions COP21 in Paris, France, December 4, 2015 as the World Climate Change Conference 2015 (COP21) continues at Le Bourget near the French capital.

"Climate action does not need more distractions".

But Hawaii is far from alone in pushing back.

I was in Germany when Trump denounced the Paris Accord, where the action was a big topic of conversation. The phrase, which the White House soon after looked to capitalise on in announcing a tour of the USA in honour of the sentiment, was quickly undercut by the mayor of that United States city.

Thanks but no thanks, said Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, tweeting in response, "I can assure you that we will follow the Paris Agreement for our people, our economy and future". The result was a significant series of rulemakings, executive orders and policies meant to wring as much greenhouse gas out of the economy as could be done without Congressional support - numerous same actions that Trump seeks to overturn. This means the rating agency will recommend its clients to disinvest from U.S. government bonds once the country has officially exited from the agreement.

Yasiel Puig flipped off the Cleveland crowd after hitting a home run
Who knows who the fan was, what was said, or why Puig chose to take action on it. He was 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in five starts for Los Angeles.

Global development partners and donors late previous year called on Vietnam to commit to bigger greenhouse gas emission reductions, warning that fueling growth with coal would hurt the country with high environmental costs later. They announced their plan to move forward with their support of the Paris Climate Agreement.

While some may say that we can't afford a clean-energy future, economic and environmental trends suggest the opposite - we can't afford not to invest in these opportunities that benefit both our economy and our environment. "A largely or wholly solar economy can be constructed in the United States with straightforward soft technologies that are now demonstrated and now economic or almost economic", environmentalist Amory Lovins declared in 1976. Natural gas production can only be competitive in comparison to prices set by foreign nations with more traditional oil extraction operations.

In fact, just two months ago at the annual General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union, for the first time in the body's history, we debated issues around existential threats to science in general, the integrity of the scientific community, trust in science and what we can do to ensure that evidence-based science forms the basis for informed decisions and debate by policymakers and the public.

In Salt Lake City, Utah - a state that voted for Mr Trump - Mayor Jackie Biskupsi said that there isn't time to waste. The city's water is is the lifeblood for over a million residents in the area.

Bainimarama, who also serves as president of COP23, extended an invitation to the newly formed United States Climate Alliance to send a delegation of states to the upcoming convention in Bonn, Germany.
