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.

"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.

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.
