Joining other governors and state and local leaders from the mainland, Governor David Ige signed legislation on Tuesday that will implement the steps outlined in the Paris Agreement in Hawaii.

The Governors of California, Connecticut, Oregon, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, and Hawaii also signed the letter. India bristled after being told it would gain billions of dollars if the USA signed the agreement, the United Nations called the decision "disappointing" and European leaders lined up to condemn Trump, including French President Emmanuel Macron, who memorably responded, "there is no plan B.

While Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement can't be completed until 2020, he has said his administration will "cease all implementation" of the accord effective immediately.

The move comes as it looks to grow its regional footprint in India and nearby global destinations such as Sri Lanka. Based on the Q400 turboprop list price, an order could be valued at up to United States dollars 1.7 billion.

Some studies suggest the United States will cut emissions as much as 19 percent by 2025 if it simply moves forward as is, he said.

Georgia's obligations taken through the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change officially comes into play today. Another 13% said they did not know.

He said Pyongyang had a record of compliance with United Nations climate conventions, which makes sense when you consider poorer countries are the most vulnerable to its effects, including the declining availability of food, water and energy, as well as sea level rise and extreme weather.
