Climate decision could accelerate damage to Trump properties

Frank Williams | 10 June, 2017, 06:35

Twelve of the country's leading research universities have reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris climate change accord, despite U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the global agreement.

As of 2016 $7 trillion was invested in ESG assets, according to the Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment data cited by the publication.

"Climate change is a fact of life that people in Los Angeles and cities around the world live with every day", Garcetti said. The commitments of American states, cities, organizations and individuals on reducing US greenhouse gas emissions will continue to provide at least half of the cuts promised by ex-president Barack Obama.

German Chancellor Angele Merkel met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi shortly after Trump returned to the US, and then with Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang. Climate issues are global challenges.

The following year the Natural Resources Defense Council released a report that found that the majority of Latinos, like their black counterparts, live in California, Texas, Florida, and NY, which are states that will be the most affected by extreme flooding.

Win over Pakistan emphatic start for title defence, says Yuvraj Singh
India always looked in control and Pakistan never really threatened to take the game away at any stage. At the end of the day, for us, it's just playing the sport we love.

We human beings seem to need a boogie man and now, fortunately or unfortunately, we do. Our share is only about 0.30 percent of the world's total, quite insignificant yet we are a signatory to the Paris Agreement on climate change.

State media for North Korea called President Donald Trump selfish Tuesday for his move to pull out of the Paris Climate accord. Nine states - Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont - require capping and trading Carbon dioxide emissions from fossil-fueled power plants 25 megawatts and larger. Now, Bruce said, the US administration has weakened its position as a key player on the global stage. Among the many vague, idealistic and naive statements and goals, there is the establishment of a $100 billion fund to be paid by "developed" countries and doled out to "undeveloped" countries to convert to non-carbon energy systems. He said that the USA government will continue to "maintain engagement" with other countries despite the Paris accord pull-out. When the world's largest oil and gas company falls in line to reduce climate change there is no turning back the clock, no matter what a US president does. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy and stand for environmental justice.

In withdrawing, the United States will be joining a very select group of countries who will not adhere to the 2015 accord - Syria and Nicaragua.

Chinese officials also contrasted their stances on climate with Trump's reversal, a connection that Chinese President Xi Jinping did not draw in his meeting with Brown earlier in the week.

Thus we are told by the OECD that a "large" fall in house prices will threaten our whole economy because it would reduce spending and reduce construction.
