Dayton Says He’ll Sign Onto U.S. Climate Goal Alliance

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s governor is committing the state to upholding the Paris climate change accord by joining an alliance set up by other states with the same goal.

Gov. Mark Dayton says he signed onto the U.S. Climate Alliance which was formed after President Donald Trump announced last week that the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement reached by 195 countries last year.

California, New York and Washington started the alliance. Minnesota, Puerto Rico and eight other states signed on Monday. Alliance members pledge to reduce emissions 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels.

  1. So will the people of Minnesota have to all or part of the 100 billion a year to the “who really knows where the money goes” fund?

  2. Idiot liberals have no idea what was in the Paris global warming hoax slush fund treaty. All it said was China, Russia, India, Iran would receive billions from the USA and they still wouldn’t have to cut their emissions for 25 more years. Makes sense, right? Give away over a trillion to third world dumps, for them to use any way they please.
