Hawaii Passes Law Committing to Paris Agreement

Hawaii is joining at least 12 other states that have formed the U.S. Climate Alliance and promised to remain committed to the goals in the Paris deal.

Hawaii county representatives and mayors like Honolulu's Kirk Caldwell also signed a statement declaring their commitment toward the agreement. "It's really heartening to see the process roll forward".

Disapproval for pulling out of the Paris deal, however, was divided along party lines.

Can 'emboldened' Labour form a minority government?
Lack of a majority can inhibit the government from passing legislation, and the party with the most seats often has to cobble a coalition to enact laws.

"Obviously I'm disappointed with the current American administration decision to pull out of Paris", Obama said Tuesday during a speech in Canada.

The resolution "strongly condemns" Trump's decision and admonishes him "for rejecting peer-reviewed science, jeopardizing the health of our citizens and environment, harming our country's economic competitiveness, endangering our national security, and abdicating our country's leadership role in the world".

In December 2015, then-foreign minister Ri Su Yong told delegates in Paris that the North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un had "declared war on deforestation" and that the country aimed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by "37.4 percent compared with the levels of the 1990s".

Theresa May forced to ditch key manifesto pledges after losing her majority

Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency administrator, and Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, differed over whether the president believes climate change is man-made. When the door by the grandfather clock closed, and we were alone, the president began by saying, "I want to talk about Mike Flynn".

Members of the public thanked the city for taking action.

"I did not tell the President that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice had been reluctant to make public statements that we did not have an open case on President Trump for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change", Comey wrote in his testimony. "It just becomes more important every day". Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) as well as any further contributions to the Green Climate Fund, which provides money to poor countries to lower emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change. The group is known as the "Climate Mayors", and now lists 247 signatories on its Medium post.

"Global warming is one of the gravest challenges humankind is facing today and the Paris Agreement that called for nationally determined contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is the outcome of decades-long efforts to mitigate it".
