As outlined in its climate change strategy, Bournemouth has a target to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions by 30 per cent by 2020, helping the United Kingdom hit its target of 34 per cent Carbon dioxide reduction by that year.

"Climate change is real, regardless of what others may say", Ige stressed. The governor's office said that SB 559 expanded "strategies and mechanisms" to cut greenhouse gas emissions across the state "in alignment with the principles and goals adopted" in the Paris Agreement.

He said the USA leader has asked to look at possibly reversing agreements on some protected areas, "and that would be a disaster".

"We just have to hope he's got other things on his mind right now and he doesn't do that", he said.

"Countries are not necessarily feeling like it's going to be a sacrifice to transition to clean energy", said Anderson, who attended the original Paris climate talks. If cooperative global action is not taken to reduce carbon emissions at the pace and scale needed, people and wildlife in IL, across North America, and the world will suffer greatly from increased flooding, severe droughts, loss and shifting of habitat and migratory corridors, sea level rise, ocean acidification, loss of snowpack, increased wildfires, and other severe impacts.

"This top-down decision has left the US administration stranded, spinning its wheels", David Suzuki Foundation science and policy director Ian Bruce said.

The Trump administration removed numerous references to climate change from the White House website in January.

He said along with Trump's past actions, like leaving the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, are signs of America's decline in global leadership.

"The "America First Policy" advocated by Trump led to the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement".

It was steady, principled American leadership on the world stage that made that achievement possible.

Tracy Twine, associate professor in the Department of Soil, Water and Climate, has done research showing how climate change could hurt future corn yields. "I really think we can do it".
