U.S. environmental agency chief says humans contribute to global warming

Galeno Paniagua | 04 Junio, 2017, 10:59

On Friday, Bolivian President Evo Morales alluded to U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Conference.

The United Nations Environment Chief Erik Solheim joined other experts and analysts as saying that the USA withdrawal will put India and China in leadership positions in the global fight to combat climate change. He's said California's economy is proof that combating climate change isn't the economic deadweight Trump suggests. "There is no backsliding on the Paris Agreement", European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said.

Trump said the United States would be willing to rejoin the accord if it could obtain more favorable terms, but the leaders of France, Germany and Italy said in a joint statement Thursday that the agreement cannot be renegotiated, "since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economics".

The New York Times said that Bloomberg's unnamed group so far includes 30 mayors, three governors, more than 80 university presidents and more than 100 businesses.

Cristiano Ronaldo elogió a Lionel Messi: "Es un crack. Disfruto"
Cristiano habló sobre cuáles serán sus próximos objetivos y dijo que será de nuevo ganar otra Liga de Campeones: "Eso es lo siguiente".

New York City is joined by several other American states and localities in vowing to uphold the previous American commitment to reach the goals laid out in the Paris agreements.

In Paris, French President Emmanuel Macron turned Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan on its head, saying in a rare English-language statement that it was time to "make the planet great again".

"Mayors, governors, and business leaders from both political parties are signing onto a statement of support that we will submit to the United Nations - and together, we will reach the emission reduction goals that the USA made in Paris in 2015", he wrote.

And officials around the world said that they would press for the climate agreement to be respected regardless of the USA decision.

Will Cleveland defeat the Golden State Warriors at least one time? We have to get the matchups we like and take advantage. It's completely unsurprising that Smith is confident in his team's abilities, and the Cavs can certainly play better.

Others, including India, signaled their commitment to the accord, but Russian President Vladimir Putin said that while the United States should have remained in the 2015 deal, he would not judge Trump, and warned about the accord's impact on jobs and poverty.

In the wake of the Trump administration's sudden withdrawal from the worldwide stage, local leaders - especially, though not limited to, those in progressive areas of the country - are recommitting to their work on climate policy. Cities are responsible for 75 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, meaning that even small changes in city-wide policies - retrofitting street lamps with LED bulbs, for instance, or deploying electric vehicles for city-owned cars - can make a big dent in the country's overall emissions.

In Tokyo, Japan's environment minister, Koichi Yamamoto, said: "I'm not just disappointed, but also feel anger".
