The Maplewood City Council approved a resolution on Tuesday night that would commit the city to the climate change agreement President Donald Trump chose to withdraw the nation from last month.
Climate scientists warn that any temperature increase beyond that "red line" could have disastrous consequences worldwide.
The United States did not join in the portions of the official G7 Communique on climate change or multilateral development banks, which reaffirmed the other G7 countries commitments to the Paris climateagreement. China, Russia, India and most of the other nations have ignored the climate for decades, but with the potential of squeezing we the people for all the money they could get and in turn destroying our job-creation ability, which would ultimately ruin our economy, they were all in. But, concretely, we will have to compensate and even overcompensate for the USA government's withdrawal, in particular regarding the finances and technologies for Africa and developing countries.
Celebrating the signing of the final accord at the COP21 summit in Paris on December 12, 2015.
The 2001 decision to withdraw from Kyoto came at a time when our greenhouse gas emissions were increasing every year, with no end in sight. Some say that Trump may have involuntarily and ironically given this fight a boost.
The United States is joining two other countries, Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries not in the Paris Climate Accords. In allowing themselves to be so unduly influenced by the fossil fuel industry, the Trump administration and the Republican Party are facing squarely backward - away from the healthy environment, future jobs and prosperity American families and workers want. In addition, growing poverty and migration will have negative consequences on security. Third, market forces alone will not be enough to restructure transportation.
"As the mayor of Pittsburgh, I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris Agreement", he tweeted. If we can, that's great. He did mention that he would be willing to renegotiate the Paris climate accord deal.
The Accord isn't a trade deal with winners and losers.
Thus, in regard to the issue of climate change, since there are strong elements of economic and diplomatic strategy-based maneuvering by countries under globalism, and since the scientific knowledge at its base has uncertainties and still does not extend beyond a hypothesis, the HRP has consistently called for a fundamental overhaul of current climate change policies.
- Rep. Scott Perry, R-Dillsburg, complained that the treaty should have been ratified by the U.S. Senate, but instead of urging such ratification, argued - head-scratchingly - that abandoning the accord was "a solid first step in reasserting the role of the U.S. Constitution in global affairs and domestic issues". There are legitimate criticisms that can be levied against the details of the pact. From 1990 to 2005, electricity-related carbon dioxide emissions grew a whopping 25 percent, from 1,821 MMT (million metric tons) to 2,401 MMT, but then dropped to 1,901 MMT by 2015.
The statement goes further to encourage the 49 remaining parties that have not ratified the agreement to do so. Renewables represent the fastest growing energy sector, and the president's assertion that leaving the agreement is good for the economy is false.
So it is left to leaders on the state, city and local levels to do what Trump has thus far shown himself incapable of on any number of fronts: to lead.
Despite the short-sightedness of our Executive Branch, there is reason for optimism.
Barker added that withdrawal takes a five-year period, according to the Paris accord, so everyone, including PNG, should not be panicking.
"We simply have to take on more responsibility", she said.
Incidentally, by the Intergovernmental Panels on Climate Change's estimates, the rest of the 21st Century will possibly bring little warming anyway.
This "America First" attitude on climate change is a unsafe road to travel, where the destination is history's wrong side, and it's awfully lonely being on the wrong side of history.
