Trump qui sort les Etats-Unis de l'accord de Paris. Magnifique signe pour continuer à ne rien faire.

UNESCO : Protégez la culture, pas l'industrie du charbon ! - 350. Hawaii now has a state law supporting the Paris Agreement’s climate goals. In a new report, Grist 50-er Liz Specht identifies the obstacles that prevent earth-friendly meat from taking over the world.

Hawaii now has a state law supporting the Paris Agreement’s climate goals.

If meat stopped coming from cows and was instead grown in the lab, she argues, it would slash meat production’s environmental footprint. So, Specht and her colleagues at the Good Food Institute hope to midwife the birth of a new clean-meat industry. To get there, we’d need some crucial innovations. Here’s a taste: Better bioreactors: Bioreactors are big tanks that slowly stir meat cells until they multiply into something burger sized. Scaffolding: If you want nice tender meat, instead of a soup of cells, you need a scaffold — a sort of artificial bone — for meat cells to cling to so they can take shape. Growth fluid: At the moment, meat cells are mostly raised in fluid taken from cattle embryos.

Climat : Parlement européen vs Trump

Dans le monde de Donald Trump, l'Europe a la responsabilité de conduire le changement et de s'engager pour le climat ! Les Etats-Unis et la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique et pour la protection de la planète par Louis SAISI - IdeeSaisies. Les Etats-Unis et la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique et pour la protection de la planète Le retrait annoncé le 1er juin 2017 par le Président des Etats-Unis de l’accord international de la COP 21 signé à Paris le 12 décembre 2015, même s’il est actionné par D.

TRUMP, pour aussi regrettable qu’il soit par rapport à la lutte pour la protection de notre planète, ne doit pas nous faire oublier qu’il correspond à une ancestrale habitude américaine de faire toujours prévaloir les intérêts des Etats-Unis sur toute autre considération. These states, cities, and companies are going to support the Paris Agreement without Trump. In seemingly choreographed lockstep with President Trump’s revelation that the U.S. would exit the Paris Agreement, the Environmental Protection Agency announced on Thursday a buyout program to begin the process of cutting its staffing levels.

These states, cities, and companies are going to support the Paris Agreement without Trump.

According to an internal memo from Acting Deputy Administrator Mike Flynn (not that Mike Flynn), the EPA’s offer encourages “voluntary separations” that would cause “minimal disruption to the workforce.” The workforce was plenty disrupted, however, by the budget proffered earlier this year by the Trump administration. It basically suggests taking a blowtorch to the agency — proposing a 31 percent budget cut and the elimination of 3,200 out of the EPA’s 15,000 jobs. The proposed buyout will cost $12 million, and will first have to be approved by the Office of Management and Budget. The agency hopes to complete the cuts by September. Retrait des États-Unis de l’Accord de Paris : une faveur pour le reste du monde. Le scénario n’est pas irréaliste, considérant le nombre élevé de climatosceptiques placés à des postes-clefs de l’administration américaine et qui n’ont eu de cesse de dénigrer, ces derniers mois, les politiques de réduction des gaz à effet de serre (GES) ou les budgets investis dans les recherches sur le climat.

5 Reasons Leaving The Paris Agreement Is A Terrible Decision. In 2015, nations came together to make a concrete plan on how to counter climate change.

5 Reasons Leaving The Paris Agreement Is A Terrible Decision

Now, President Donald Trump just announced that the United States will renege on its promise. Here’s why Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement is pointless and destructive to the environment, the U.S. economy and human rights. 1. The U.S. has contributed more carbon pollution, over time, than any other nation. As history’s biggest carbon polluter, the U.S. has a responsibility to help fight climate change before it claims more lives through increased flooding, severe storms and drought.

And yet, Donald Trump pulled out of the one agreement the rest of the world has made to help fight the problem this pollution is causing. A crucial crack in an Antarctic ice sheet grew 11 miles in only 6 days. Some highlights: “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

Pittsburgh’s votes went mostly to Hillary Clinton. She won 55.9 percent of votes in Allegheny County. Note that the Paris Agreement encompasses people from nearly 200 countries, not just the city where it was drafted. “The bottom line is the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States.” Other countries think U.S. involvement is extremely fair. “This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining an economic advantage over the United States.”

Actually, the economic advantages of combating climate change are well documented. And, just for fun, a comment from Scott Pruitt: Requiem pour une planète en surchauffe. Ocean Conservancy. We’re literally losing sleep over climate change.
