"A coalition is forming, a Blue America, and at least on climate change, it is going beyond mere resistance to a more proactive role, negotiating with the international community on its own behalf, like a separate nation"

The United States Climate Alliance is a bipartisan group of states in the United States that are committed to upholding the objectives of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change within their borders ... The 13 members of the Alliance as of June 7, 2017, made up 30.6% of the U.S. population and 35.9% of U.S. GDP as of 2016.

"If I'm president, we will win on everything we do". - Donald Trump.

So much winning. Too much winning.

What about the other 69.4%? California and NY dislike him and they have to be two of the most populous states. committed to upholding doesn't really count for much.

30% is disappointing tbh It should be 100%! How can anyone be ignorant or selfish enough to support the idea of condemning future generations? It is beyond chilling.

The majority of the US populace is uneducated, so i guess the only reason he's still standing is cause he has blind followers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's more than a little concerning that it's only 30% that disagree.

Daaamn that is some good trash. Considering the net benefit California contributes to the USA in terms of taxes, the global tech and entertainment industry, number of commercial patents and skilled labour. I'd love to have that kind of trash, might pay off my student debts and have deposit for a house come Christmas!

It does not surprise me that America is not going to submit to European scientific dogma which is liable to be disproved in a few decades.

Where's the story here? This just shows that there is a minority in the United States who disagree with Trump's strategy on tackling climate change.
