China tells Trump climate change is not a Chinese hoax

Trump ignores Al Gore, Obama's climate change scare tactics, taps global warming skeptic Myron Ebell to head EPA

"The Paris Agreement has completed the 21 day sitting period before parliament and the Instrument of Ratification has been signed by the Foreign Secretary", the foreign ministry said in statement.

This year will be the third in a row to break a global heat record. Officials from other nations have been vowing to continue their efforts to slow global warming, even if Trump walks America away from the new pact.

As members of the USA business and investor community, they emphasized their "deep commitment to addressing climate change" and pledged to their part, "in our operations and beyond", to meet the goals of the agreement to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.

"This is the time to keep a close watch", he said.

Trump has called man-made global warming a hoax and has said he will withdraw from the Paris Agreement, which seeks to cut net greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century.

The potential loss of American climate leadership on the world stage has left negotiators in Marrakesh shaken.

"Environmental groups have been left with the daunting prospect that, with a climate skeptic in the White House, they will need to look directly to corporations to assume the mantle of leading the country's response to climate change", as The New York Times reported.

"China is already a leader when it comes to green technologies, and if the USA steps back China will move forward and probably no other country would be in a position to close the gap", Marsh said.

"The world is already changing at an increasingly alarming rate with increasingly alarming consequences", said Kerry, who has made the fight against global warming a hallmark of his tenure.

Another neighbor says before he knew the age of the missing baby, he thought it might've been his own daughter, gone missing. They say the Federal Bureau of Investigation has joined the search for the week-old girl, Sofia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca.


The World Bank cautions that United States dollars 90 trillion is needed to finance the climate-friendly infrastructure needed to continue on a low-carbon path. Climate finance is a major focus of the COP 22 talks in Marrakech, including how that funding can be directed to cities.

Trump denied sending the 2012 tweet, which is still online, in a presidential debate.

Trump has said he also supports expanding renewable energy.

He said the country would increase non-fossil fuel sources in primary energy consumption to about 20 per cent, and increased the forest stock volume by 4.5 billion cubic meters.

Trump says that he will shift to boost the domestic US coal, oil, gas and shale industries. "I remain very optimistic about our effort to combat climate change. It's now CLIMATE CHANGE".

Ebell, though not a scientist, has emerged as one of the world's foremost climate deniers.

Wang also pointed out that "Trump may not renege on the Paris Agreement since the Obama administration has already signed on behalf of the us, but Trump may choose not to execute the agreement seriously in order to protect some enterprises with greater emissions". But because the accord includes no legally binding emissions goals, only the commitment to pursue them and regularly consider strengthening them, Trump could simply choose to ignore it.

Throughout his campaign, Trump made his vision for federal climate policy clear: He has promised to reverse Obama's climate agenda, including the Clean Power Plan, which would cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants as a way to meet US obligations under the Paris Climate Agreement.
