US will withdraw from Paris climate accord: Donald Trump 2.6.2017 DNA: Money
President Donald Trump on Thursday said he will withdraw the United States from the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change, spurning pleas from U.S. allies and corporate leaders in an action that fulfilled a major campaign pledge. "We're getting out," Trump said at a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden in which he decried the Paris accord's "draconian" financial and economic burdens. "In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord," Trump said. But he added that the United States would begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or "a new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers." With Trump's action, the United States will walk away from nearly every nation in the world on one of the pressing global issues of the 21st century. The pullout will align the United States with Syria and Nicaragua as the world's only ...

Donald Trump has decided to pull US out of Paris climate deal- Report 31.5.2017 DNA: Top News
US President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, Axios news outlet reported on Wednesday, citing two unidentified sources with direct knowledge of the decision. Trump who has previously called global warming a hoax, refused to endorse the landmark climate change accord at a summit of the G7 group of wealthy nations on Saturday, saying he needed more time to decide. He then tweeted that he would make an announcement this week. Fox News also cited an unidentified source confirming the pullout. The accord, agreed on by nearly 200 countries in Paris in 2015, aims to limit planetary warming in part by slashing carbon dioxide and other emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Under the pact, the United States committed to reducing its emissions by 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025. Axios said details of the pullout are being worked out by a team that includes EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. The choice is between a formal withdrawal that could take three years or ...

It's getting hotter: New study shows massive increase in moss growth in Antarctic Peninsula 19.5.2017 DNA: Top News
For the naysayers who don’t believe climate change exists, here’s a reality check: Antarctica’s landscape is transforming from white to green, as plant life on the continent grows like never before. As reported by AFP, scientists, who published a paper in Current Biology, have said they have found a sharp increase in plant growth in the past 50 years. Currently, plant life is 0.3% in what used to be a state dominated by ice.    “Temperature increases over roughly the past half century on the Antarctic Peninsula have had a dramatic effect on moss banks growing in the region,” said co-author Matt Amesbury, of the University of Exeter, adding that if this trend continued, then the peninsula would be a much greener place than it is today. Five moss cores — or column-like samples drilled from the Earth — showed evidence of what scientists called “changepoints,” or points in time after which biological activity clearly increased. Areas sampled included three Antarctic islands — Elephant Island, Ardley Island, ...

Big polluters have backdoor access to UNFCCC? 4.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
A new report by Corporate Accountability International: "Inside Job: Big Polluters’ lobbyists on the inside at the UNFCCC,” has exposed the dirty fossil fuel trade associations that are stalking the halls of the UN climate talks to undermine, weaken, and block progress. The report release comes just a week before governments convene in Bonn, Germany to continue negotiations on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Governments will, for the first time in history, officially discuss conflicts of interest at this convening. The meetings in Bonn will also be the first for the US’ Trump administration, whose State Department is now led by former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson. This has further raised the spectre of conflicts of interest in government and at the talks. “Right now hundreds of business trade associations have access to the climate talks, and many of them are funded by some of the world’s biggest polluters and climate change deniers,” said International Policy ...

China emphasises on commitment to Paris accord as Donald Trump undoes US climate policy 29.3.2017 DNA: Top News
China is still committed to the Paris climate change accord agreed in 2015, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, after US President Donald Trump signed an order to dismantle Obama-era climate change regulations. Trump's main target is former president Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan, which required states to slash carbon emissions from power plants - a key factor in the United States' ability to meet its commitments under the climate change accord reached by nearly 200 countries in Paris. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said climate change was a common challenge for everyone and the Paris agreement was a landmark that came about with the hard work of the international community, including China and the United States. China is keen to be seen leading the way in reducing climate change which Trump has in the past dismissed as a "hoax". "We still uphold that all sides should move with the times, grasp the opportunities, fulfil their promises and earnestly take proactive steps to jointly push ...
