United States Climate Alliance

Since Potus 45 with drew the US from the Paris accord we knew some places would go against his leadership and do their own thing. New York, California and Washington state came together to create the United States Climate Alliance. This was to move forward with implementing the Paris accord regardless of what Potus 45 and his administration tried to do. Since then Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon, Puerto Rico territory, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia have all joined. Many of these states had voted for Potus 45 and yet now find themselves at odds with said President. Many of these governors are now on record talking of the new energy economy and the need to support and protect the thousands of jobs it has created.

Interesting observation is that Texas leads the nation in renewable wind power. Since these states have gone on record and official joined the alliance, they are now planning to present to the United Nations their own plan to incorporate the paris accord by 2025. while states are banned from negotiating agreements with foreign governments without congressional approval, this non-binding agreement appears to fall outside that constitutional ban.

Interesting observation as pointed out is that this alliance of 12 states and one territory produces 43% of the US GNP which is equal to Germany, France and the UK combined. Just adding another state or two could push this over to 50+% GNP. So the State-level organization is a big deal that will have an affect.

End result is that the Clean Energy bug is out of the bag and there is no putting it back in. Those that resist will eventually lose. This is not to say that oil and ICE auto's do not have their place in the global economy nor that they are going to go away anytime soon.

Interesting.

I think in the next upcoming election in November for the governor of NJ most likely a Democratic candidate will win and then I think NJ most likely will join the alliance
