Uh, Even North Korea Thinks Trump's Paris Climate Decision Was

When the US actually completes to process of pulling out from the Paris agreement, which would take years, it would join Nicaragua - who thought the accord didn't go far enough in combating climate change - and Syria - who didn't want to be beholden to other governments - as the only holdouts.

On Tuesday, North Korea's foreign ministry blasted Trump for his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, removing the world's second-largest emitter of global warming pollutants from the treaty.

Hawaii Sen. J. Kalani English introduced SB 559, and said in the release that the signing of these two bills allows the state "legal basis" to stay in line with the Paris accord "despite the Federal government's withdrawal".

Tek Vannara, executive director of the NGO Forum, said that Trump's "protectionism" would badly affect countries like Cambodia and urged the U.S. to reconsider the move.

"We will intensify efforts to meet each of our cities' current climate goals, push for new action to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius target, and work together to create a 21st century clean energy economy", declared the mayors, who referred to themselves as "Climate Leaders" in a statement following Trump's decision to withdraw from the pact on Thursday.

In announcing the withdrawal on June 1 from the almost universally supported agreement, Trump earned the scorn of the European Union, China, India, Brazil, and many other nations that have been taking ambitious actions to reduce their emissions of global warming gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane.
