  • Letters - PRI Response To US Withdrawal From Climate Agreement

'Regardless of President Trump's decision, the great cities of the world, in particular the twelve American C40 cities, remain resolutely committed to doing what needs to be done to implement the Paris agreement, ' she said, referring to 91 global cities that are have vowed to fight global warming. "Accordingly, we strongly encourage you to make a clean break from the Paris Agreement".

"From automotive companies that have led the way in electric cars and low-emission vehicles to innovative renewable fuel companies, MI has emerged as an engine that can drive the world forward in addressing climate change". The rally comes a week after the Trump administration announced the USA would withdraw from the accord.

He's dramatically misguided to think that withdrawing from Paris will help the United States in any way.

"The Trump administration's announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world's ability to avoid the most risky and costly effects of climate change", reads the letter signed by local and state government leaders, universities and businesses.

Hawaii Governor David Ige signed a bill on Tuesday requiring state officials to plan a response to climate change that aligns the state with the standards and goals of the Paris pact, according to Scott Glenn, an environmental adviser to the governor.

The U.S.is the world's second largest greenhouse gas emitter and without it, the agreement's temperature goal could be unreachable, said Jessica Hellmann, director of the University's Institute on the Environment. It is cheaper than coal, and will reduce emissions.

The Trump administration may be trying to move us backward, forfeiting leadership for USA policy and businesses when it comes to clean energy innovation. "Falling solar and wind prices have led to new power deals across the world despite investment in renewables falling" The Guardian coupled with evidence that renewables benefit the economy and create more jobs, it becomes even more important to neutralise the toxic Trump approach to me-first politics. Far from following the US move backward, other countries are moving ahead even more rapidly with clean energy innovation. We can still achieve the promise of Paris, but we have no time to lose.
