Rally in Binghamton held in protest of Trump's Paris Climate Accord decision

Rally in Binghamton held in protest of Trump's Paris Climate Accord decision

Just days before North Korea fired land-to-ship missiles off its east coast, Pyongyang slammed President Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, calling Trump's move a "shortsighted and silly decision".

"This is the height of egotism and moral vacuum seeking only their own well-being at the cost of the entire planet", the statement read, according to the Korean Central News Agency.

The town's climate change successes to date include helping to reduce residents' annual carbon dioxide emissions from home, business, and transport energy use, from 5.6 tonnes per person in 2005 to 3.6 tonnes in 2016. Combating global warming is necessary. That means the United States can not complete withdrawal from the Paris Agreement before November 05, 2020. "In a global redistribution of the wealth scheme, the Paris Climate Accord called for America to give away tens of billions of dollars to other countries".

First, members of the agreement must wait three years before they are eligible to withdraw, which means Trump's first term will be almost over by the time the withdrawal takes place.

The United States withdrew from the Paris Agreement last week and in response the Mayor has signed two letters acknowledging his and the City Councils' support of the global climate agreement and its goals.

The governors of Washington, California and NY on the same day announced the creation of a "climate alliance" of states that would remain committed to the Paris goals.

"People come to Hawaii to enjoy its environment", Glenn said. Ige joined the alliance on Friday.

Climate change presents one of the most significant threats to water, wildlife, habitat, and the economies that rely on healthy natural resources. "It's possible to have both by withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement".

An overwhelming majority of scientists say human activity - including the burning of oil, gas and coal - is the main driver of rising global temperatures. The Environmental Protection Agency a year ago cited rising sea levels, the acidification of ocean water and the increasing frequency of powerful storms as threats facing Hawaii due to global warming.
