Obama addresses climate change summit

Obama addresses climate change summit

North American cities commit to tackle climate change in spite of the Trump administration.

Former President Obama will speak Tuesday at the North American Climate Summit (C40) in Chicago, where the former president is expected to thank a gathering of world leaders for continued commitment to fighting climate change.

Mayors from several US cities are expected to sign a promise to reduce greenhouse emissions on Tuesday.

Obama also met with former French President Francois Hollande, who said in a tweet that climate change was among the issues they discussed nearly two years after they both signed the Paris agreement.

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". Or, in other words, much like with Sanctuary Cities, an effort to circumvent the USA government under Trump to advance the liberal agenda.

Former President Barack Obama was expected to address the crowd in the afternoon, following sessions on transportation, energy and waste management for mayors from cities including Paris, Mexico City, San Francisco and Phoenix.

He explained mayors are stepping up because there's no consensus from national governments.

Earlier, Obama also discussed climate issues with Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.

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. The Republican has said the terms of the agreement should be more favourable to businesses and taxpayers.

Mayors from 51 cities around the world attended the event.
