Back in the United States, Hawaii has become the first U.S. state to enact laws to carry out the landmark 2015 Paris climate accord. On Tuesday, Hawaii Governor David Ige signed into law two bills designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions statewide and to improve soil health and promote carbon sequestration. The move comes after President Trump announced he was pulling the United States out of the 2015 Paris climate accord, sparking widespread domestic and international outrage.
