  • Obama to address mayors' meeting on climate change

Some 100 leaders were invited to what President Emmanuel Macron called the One Planet Summit in July, following Mr Trump's announcement that he would withdraw the United States from the agreement that has been signed by 197 countries and territories.

Former President Barack Obama is in Chicago on Tuesday and among his stops: delivering remarks at the North American Climate Summit hosted by Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Obama gave Emanuel an on-stage bro-hug and said, "Rahm and I were talkin' before we came out and we have children who aren't so young anymore". "We lead respectively where there is no consensus or directive out of our national governments".

Chicago officials are billing the two-day North American Climate Summit Chicago as the first of its kind in the city. Or, in other words, much like with Sanctuary Cities, an effort to circumvent the US government under Trump to advance the liberal agenda. The U.S. won't technically back out until 2020 because of legal technicalities.

Emanuel and other Democratic mayors are forging their own policies on climate in the wake of the Trump Administration pulling out of the Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse emissions. It also calls for them to work with scientific and academic experts to find solutions.

Chicago Chief Sustainability Officer Chris Wheat says the idea is to "fill the void" the Trump administration has left. Some mayors have specifically agreed to commitments to expand public transportation and invest in natural climate solutions such as tree canopy and vegetation.
