Cooper signs on to Paris climate change pact

Reuters wrote that Brown has called President Trump's recent Paris Agreement decision "insane", and in a speech today, he criticized policy makers that were "resisting reality". "I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack".

Last week when President Donald Trump made a decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord his now famous line was "I am the president of Pittsburgh, not Paris".

Scientists from around the globe have warned that this ongoing warming creates conditions that spawn severe weather events, change global climate patterns, melt the world's glaciers and damage its coral reefs, and raise sea levels around the world. Thank you Mr. President!

America joined Nicaragua and Syria as the only nations that did not sign the Paris Agreement. The landmark agreement succeeded where past attempts failed because it allowed each country to set its own emission reduction targets and adopt its own strategies for reaching them. More than two dozen other states, mostly in the country's middle, already had been fighting stepped-up federal emissions-cutting programs before Trump's announcement.

Obama also did not have the authorization required by Congress to ship $1 billion in taxpayer dollars to the Green Climate Fund before leaving office.

What good does it do the U.S.to cut its emissions back to a painful level when China and India can keep belching out greenhouse gases?

This week, acting U.S. ambassador to China David Rank resigned from his post in Beijing over Trump's decision to withdraw.

He said his administration would begin negotiations to reenter the Paris accord or another climate treaty "on terms that are fair" to the US.

Trump also said he wants to renegotiate the agreement.

The day before, 10 Republican state attorneys general submitted a letter to Donald Trump, advocating for leaving the Paris Agreement.

This is China's first time hosting the Clean Energy Ministerial, which began amid the city's characteristic sheen of haze.

"It is imperative that the world know that in the US, 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 letter stated.

The decision was widely denounced by American politicians, pundits and leaders from around the world.

In this respect, California - a progressive pioneer in clean energy since the 1980s, and home to almost 40 million people, more than most countries - is China's natural ally on the subject.
