Hawaii Becomes First State to Sign Law Aligning with Paris Agreement

Despite opposition from dozens of CEOs, the majority of the Americans and almost every country on Earth, President Trump announced last week that the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. It proposes that the city prepare an annual report that documents specific activities it has implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, track its emissions and use of resources, and recommend future sustainability measures.

Gap Inc.'s president and CEO Art Peck stated, "Gap Inc. believes that action on climate change is not an option, it's an imperative".

"But that's temporary", the California governor said.

Recently, Cllr David Smith, portfolio holder for planning and environment, said he was "extremely disappointed" Mr Trump had chose to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, adding the council would "continue with their commitment to reduce carbon emissions in this town".

Trump argued that the Paris agreement favors emerging economies such as China's and India's at the expense of US workers.

It should not have come as a great surprise to anyone who has paid attention when President Trump announced last week the USA would be withdrawing from the Paris climate accord. Raw material prices for homes (wood), cars (steel, aluminum, rubber) and our food will climb as the climate changes, increasing weather volatility and changing weather patterns.

"City of Helena will continue to support action to meet the Paris Agreement", it says. 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".

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.

Looking Ahead: Formal U.S. withdrawal will take approximately four years.

This most recent commitment by Bieter to uphold the Paris deal and increase Boise's investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency is an example of exactly the type of leadership that Idaho needs.
