Existing climate efforts expected to keep US goals on track

"We will continue to resolutely be a protector and promoter of the global climate system process, proactively participating in the multilateral climate change process", Hua said.

"Three states and over 100 cities have committed to uphold the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. This is something we need to take action on, not because it will save money but because it is the morally right thing to do", said Rep. Chris Lee.

Trump has said he is willing to negotiate a better deal that also will help fight global warming.

Brown, along with a dozen USA governors and hundreds of mayors and companies, has pledged to slash his state's greenhouse gas emissions and uphold America's commitment to the landmark treaty, even in the absence of federal support.

With regard to the Paris Climate Accord, the media reports the USA withdrawal from the agreement but conveniently omits the last five words "and seek a new deal".

President Donald Trump announced the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement reached by almost 200 countries. In the absence of leadership from Washington, states, cities, colleges and universities and businesses representing a sizeable percentage of the US economy will pursue ambitious climate goals, working together to take forceful action and to ensure that the USA remains a global leader in reducing emissions.

"I have proposed that California will cut its greenhouse gases 40 per cent below 1990 levels and that we'll have 50 per cent of our electricity from renewables", Brown told President Xi Jinping in a 45-minute meeting.

But Africa Union Commission (AUC)'s Department for Rural Economy and Agriculture director Godfrey Bahiingwa said as Africa Union (AU), it clearly understands the impact of climate change on the continent. "Well in California we don't agree", Brown said.

China and the USA are the world's first- and second-largest emitters of carbon dioxide, respectively. The members represent more than 1.18 billion people and US$27.5 trillion GDP - equivalent to 16 percent of the global population and 37 percent of the global economy. "He is trying to revive the fossil-fuel industry, such as the use of coal, which became the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the United States".

According to the Governor's Office, the agreement will focus on cooperation in developing low-carbon, energy efficient, and renewable technologies.
