DENVER — Mayor Michael Hancock can now be counted among the growing list of mayors across the country working to strengthen efforts against climate change.

Mayor Hancock posted these pictures on Twitter Saturday after signing the “Climate Mayors Letter” and committing Denver to meeting the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

The renewed efforts to slow climate change are a direct reaction to the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw the country from the sweeping agreement that includes nearly every country in the world.

So Mayor Hancock wants to make it even more expensive for working class families to live in Denver! Thanks, for putting the global elites ahead of Americans.

yeah, rah rah. zzzzzzzzzz

I'm announcing a personal commitment to solving global hunger, poverty, income inequality and cancer by 2025.

The Paris "agreement" was an Obama/Kerry shoot from the hip pledge, not an official U.S. ratified or funded agreement/plan.

Lip Service with no enforcement other than the enviro lawyers having a field day with law suits down the road.

Live by the pen, die by the pen.

Exactly why it's not so damaging for the US to be a part, then pass it's own laws to contain those lawsuits.

Boulder's mayor has now also so declared. I'd like to see unincorporated Evergreen follow suit in announcing its adherence to the intent and spirit of the Paris Agreement. Let's out ourselves as moral leaders to the rest of Colorado and the world.

Syria set to sign Paris climate deal, leaving US isolated
dw.com, Carla Bleiker (with Reuters, AP), 2017.11.07

"We're very pleased that Syria (even at COP23) announced its intention to join the Paris Climate Agreement," Minninger said in a Bread for the World statement. "The world is showing unity in the face of devastating climate change. With this news, US President Donald Trump's government is irrevocably and completely isolated on the stage of climate policy."

The step would leave the United States as the only country in the world that's not part of the Paris Agreement. US President Donald Trump had announced in June that his country would withdraw from the accord.

Environmental Modification Convention

The Environmental Modification Convention (ENMOD), formally the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques is an international treaty prohibiting the military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects. It opened for signature on 18 May 1977 in Geneva and entered into force on 5 October 1978.

The Convention bans weather warfare, which is the use of weather modification techniques for the purposes of inducing damage or destruction. The Convention on Biological Diversity of 2010 would also ban some forms of weather modification or geoengineering.

Environmental Modification Technique includes any technique for changing – through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes – the dynamics, composition or structure of the earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space.
(full article) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_Modification_Convention

We did sign and ratify this. Sooner or later, someone may put two and two together and come up with the idea this is a crypto-environmental-war move the US fascist establishment is perpetrating upon vulnerable countries. That seems justifiably reasonable to me. What's easier to believe? That we're so stupid we'd poison the well of Earth or that in fact this was always crypto-war?

It is only a pledge, most nations exceeded their Kyoto pledges, especially Germany and Japan who took their nuclear power plants off line. The US achieved Kyoto through fracking. They replaced coal fired power plants with natural gas.
