State does the responsible thing in fighting climate change

Signing the statement means joining the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda, an association of US mayors devoted to fighting climate change. It's no wonder President Obama neglected to submit this detrimental agreement to the United States Senate.

La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat supports La Crosse state legislators urging Gov. Scott Walker to commit Wisconsin to a state-based plan for combating climate change. Another goal calls for "urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts".

Those of us living in the rural USA know backtracking presents a threat to our families and communities.

"Everything else for us is excluded", he said.

The resolution also affirmed Seattle's own target to reduce city greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 58 per cent, compared to 2008 levels, by 2030. Since the world has already warmed about 1.1 degrees Celsius (2 degrees Fahrenheit), the accord aims to ensure the threshold is not breached, with each nation setting goals to curb heat-trapping emissions. "We will not allow the denial of the very few to be the end of the days of the Marshall Islands", he said. Since then mechanization has greatly decreased employment in coal mining.

Lee made the remarks at the left-wing Center for American Progress in Washington, DC, where she referenced states rights as it applies to Trump's decision this month to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate change agreement, a move she claims would hurt the USA economy. He has said the USA could try to re-enter the deal under more favorable terms, but the European Union - and in particular Italy, France and Germany - have said the Paris accord cannot be renegotiated.

"Understanding that the USA must continue to play a significant role in addressing climate change, state and local governments across our nation are pledging to honor the Paris accord and promising to continue taking the lead in mitigating climate change".


"Having a seat a table to address this issue on a global basis.it is important", he said in January.

In fact, the final text doesn't say the Paris accord is the only tool for tackling climate change. S. out of the Paris Climate Accords.

Having said that, it's refreshing to have a President who understands his job as putting Americans, their need for jobs and aspirations for a better life for them and their children, first.

Trump announced this month that the USA would not be bound by Paris targets on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saying they were unfairly damaging to the American economy and overly generous to India and China.

Juncker said he saw "strengthened resolve" around the world to implement the deal, vowing to work with other U.S. partners like the states of California and NY as well as China and Canada.

"If the US withdraws, this has a much bigger political impact". Fuel economy regulations for cars and trucks, clean energy tax incentives and research spending may also get reduced.
