US climate change pledges: What each state is doing without Trump
When America’s president Donald Trump announced his intention to withdraw from the Paris Agreement last year, the worldwide effort to halt global warming was put at risk. Now the country’s local governments are subverting their leader by working individually to fulfil the US climate change pledges.
Clean energy stalwarts such as California and Hawaii are leading the way in this regard, implementing statewide protocols specifically targeted at proliferating renewable energy and minimising pollution.
New York, led by Governor Andrew Cuomo, is also pouring billions of dollars into climate change solutions and projects.
