Addressing climate change is an urgent issue

Addressing climate change is an urgent issue

Also known as the Paris Climate Accord, almost 200 nations came together in an effort to curb carbon emissions, with the us volunteering to reduce its own emission rates by 26 to 28 percent by 2025.

The missive takes a strong stance against the USA, typical for the secretive regime.

A number of USA mayors have vowed to do the same, proving that local leadership can have an impact even in the face of federal opposition. Of those to whom much is given, much is expected, and we Americans are blessed with more prosperity and power than most nations. As recently as May 7, a small but increasingly vocal group of Republicans is embracing the reality of global warming and taking small steps to press the issue in Congress. The move was criticized not only by environmental activists but also business and municipal concerns. More than 200 mayors across the country pledged the same.

"It is imperative that the world know that in the USA, the actors that will provide the leadership necessary to meet our Paris commitment are found in city halls, state capitals, colleges and universities, investors and businesses", the open letter said.

Speaking positively about the encounter, Brown said, "It's highly significant that the governor of California can meet with the president of China and talk about the foremost issue of our time". Four New England states - Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont - have since joined. "From automotive companies that have led the way in electric cars and low-emission vehicles to innovative renewable fuel companies, MI has emerged as an engine that can drive the world forward in addressing climate change".

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. Independent studies have repeatedly shown that RGGI leads not only to cleaner air and healthier people but also generates economic development. Science is clear that we have a limited window to reduce emissions before impacts become irreversible.

Grassroots efforts may be a lesser substitute for national leadership and necessary regulation, but they will have to do. French President Emmanuel Macron posted a video online in English calling on climate scientists to come to France and ending with the message, "We all share the same responsibility, make our planet great again".
