Even North Korea Is Criticizing Trump Pulling Out Of The Paris Accord

A Cambodian official has said US President Donald Trump's decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement is "unethical" and "irresponsible". David Ige (D) said at a press conference on Tuesday, ahead of signing the two bills into law.

The bills' signage came with the support of four Hawaiian county mayors, who have joined hundreds of other mayors across the US in signing a commitment agreement.

"This is the height of egoism and moral vacuum seeking only their own well-being even at the cost of the entire planet and, at the same time, a short-sighted and silly decision ignorant of the fact that the protection of the global environment is in their own interests", a spokesman for North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement to state news agency website KCNA. He says he was motivated by the signs of climate change he sees daily in Hawaii: "Tides are getting higher, biodiversity is shrinking, coral is bleaching, coastlines are eroding, weather is becoming more extreme". Another bill, SB 1578, creates a carbon farming task force to identify and research agricultural and aquacultural practices that will improve carbon sequestration, the process of capturing storing carbon carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to mitigate emissions.

"Hawai'i and other Pacific Islands are already experiencing the impact of rising sea levels and natural disasters".

While the state says it is the first to pass legislation in support of Paris after Trump's withdrawal announcement, other governors have pledged to uphold the agreement inside their states.

The governors of Washington, California and NY on the same day announced the creation of a "climate alliance" of states that would remain committed to the Paris goals.

As for the Paris Climate Accord, 196 different countries agreed to adopt green energy sources, cut down on emissions and limit the spike in global temperatures.

The U.S.is now one of just three countries worldwide to be either outside the agreement or on their way out, with Syria and Nicaragua as the other two nations.

In the op-ed, the mayors address Pittsburgh's history as an industrial and polluted city continuing to make stride toward cleaning up its air.

"I care deeply about the greatest trading partners, the greatest friends we've ever had, in Canada", he said.

The state of Hawaii is also challenging Trump's travel ban in federal court, saying it violates the Constitution and discriminates against travelers on the basis of religion.
