Climeworks carbon capture device will take the gas from the air and sell it or store it in the ground. Now we just need a few hundred thousand more–as quickly as possible.

    President Trump announced he will withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, a move that will weaken efforts to fight climate change and raise tensions in an already uneasy relationship with technology companies that have vocally opposed such a move.

    In a speech delivered in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said withdrawing from the accord would “protect America and its citizens” and that he would seek new negotiations for terms more favorable to the U.S. “We are getting out,” Trump said. “But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great.”

    US States Ignore White House And Form A “Climate Alliance” To Continue Decarbonization

    As the world is still reeling from President Trump’s announcement to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement, individuals, organizations, and states have been quick to register their disapproval and disgust.

    Three states – California, New York, and Washington – have already announced they’re rebelling and forming a break-away group, while businesses, universities, and cities are similarly vowing to continue on the path of decabonization. These decisions are effectively shifting the responsibility of tackling climate change away from a federal level, and instead onto the local stage.

    Paris Accord: As U.S. Drops Out, Chipmakers Double Down
    Industry sees bottom-line benefits of sustainability

    The semiconductor industry has responded to President Trump’s plan to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord with resounding reaffirmations of the industry’s commitment to sustainable and energy-efficient manufacturing practices.

    Semiconductor companies including AMD, IBM, and Intel, alongside other tech giants such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft, have signed an open letter expressing their commitment to action on climate change. For chip companies, adopting sustainable processes appears to be as much a matter of sound business practice as of social responsibility.

    Clean Energy Needs the Paris Agreement
    LED industry would benefit from agreement
    http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1331897&

    Staying in the Paris Agreement would be the best thing for LED lighting, for all clean energies, and for the world in general.

    It is thought difficult or impossible to meet the goal in the UN Climate Change Conference’s Paris Agreement of holding the global average temperature increase to well below 2°C without transitioning away from traditional fossil fuels to low-carbon renewable energy. Meeting the target likely means governments must support clean energy industries through subsidies or other means. President Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris climate accord is therefore good news for the short-term interests of fossil-fuel companies, but bad news for renewable energy suppliers working in solar power, wind and hydro. It is also likely bad news for the planet as a whole, as the U.S. withdrawal will mean more pollution and global warming.
