From the Real News file comes a digital milestone for the United States Climate Alliance, a coalition of states committed to upholding the tenets of the Paris climate accord.
"Today we're sending a clear message to the world that America's states, cities and businesses are moving forward with our country's commitments under the Paris Agreement - with or without Washington", Brown said in a statement.
Across America, states, cities, businesses, universities, and citizens are taking action to fight climate change, grow the economy, and protect public health.
The United Nations' chief, António Guterres, said in a statement the plan to assess how US cities, states and others are contributing to slashing global greenhouse gas emissions was "welcome". The lack of leadership by Trump on climate has inspired cities across the U.S.to pass their own resolutions supporting the Paris Agreement, and now there's even more they can do to counter Trump's inaction.
The overall ambition is to show the worldwide community how the combined effort of these subnational actors can significantly reduce USA greenhouse gas emissions and meet the US pledge "at a time of limited federal leadership".
Almost 300 mayors, representing 60 million Americans, have also committed to adopt, honor, and uphold the Paris Climate Agreement by becoming Climate Mayors.

Outside experts with the World Resources Institute and the Rocky Mountain Institute, two US -based non-profits, have been retained to conduct the study on current and projected emissions of "America's Pledge" affiliates.
That historically bad move by Trump has ceded USA leadership on fighting climate disruption to other countries, and has even caused some to refer to the global alliance of powers as the G-19, signaling our lack of leadership on the world stage as humanity faces an unprecedented threat.
The initiative will aim to quantify the impact of the efforts business and local and state governments, in collaboration with the Rocky Mountain Institute and the World Resources Institute (WRI).
The initiative hopes to present their findings to the United Nations at a Bonn, Germany, climate meeting in November.
Adrienne Esposito, executive director of the Farmingdale-based Citizens Campaign for the Environment, said the president "made America into an global laughing stock". "The effort to aggregate and quantify the actions of subnational authorities and non-Party stakeholders in the United States via "America's Pledge" is welcome". "There is a real hope that over time we can actually achieve what Paris has asked the world to achieve, which is to spare the world from risky climate change", he said.
