Cambodia Says it Regrets 'Irresponsible' Trump Decision to Leave Paris Climate Accord

David Ige signed two bills yesterday (June 6) to enforce parts of the Paris Agreement-making Hawaii the first state to take concrete action in support of the global climate agreement.

Fortunately for anyone who cares about the environmental health of the planet and actually takes climate change seriously ― rather than, say, believing it's a Chinese hoax, or that the other Paris signatories were only happy with the deal because it screwed over the USA ― the long, slow withdrawal process means this could still be a viable issue in a 2020 presidential campaign.

"As an institution of higher learning, it is essential that we publicly affirm the scientific evidence of the human contributions to climate change", said President Schall on the decision to opt in.

"Hawaii's natural environment is under threat", Ige said. This move follows President Donald Trump rescinding USA involvement June 1 in the climate pact, which took a series of 21 meetings for the almost 200 parties to agree on.

The mayors of Pittsburgh and Paris have united in voicing their support for the Paris Agreement after President Donald Trump invoked the two cities while discussing his reasons for pulling out of the accord.

I explained that we had briefed the leadership of Congress on exactly which individuals we were investigating and that we had told those Congressional leaders that we were not personally investigating President Trump.

The agreement, which was first signed by world leaders in December 2015, was the first global commitment to fight climate change. The tweet links to an article that discusses China's plans to produce clean energy as much as the U.S.in 2030.

David Ige signed two bills that formally enacted portions of the landmark climate pledge into law, making the Aloha State the first in the nation to legally support the global pact.

Google searches for "climate changed" also peaked in the U.S.in the last 30 days, as did searches for "trump" and "trump climate change". Many world leaders and USA politicians urged him to stay. Trump thinks that the budget allotted for climate change could be used for something else.

President Obama faced a similar struggle when trying to impose stricter greenhouse gas emissions limits during his administration.

The state of Hawaii is also challenging Trump's travel ban in federal court, saying it violates the Constitution and discriminates against travelers on the basis of religion. Another 13% said they did not know.
