The latest global mantra is that cities will soon replace the nation-state as the principal drivers and planners of society. Thus, you will see more articles of this type encouraging Mayors to usurp national sovereignty status and take control of the climate change mitigation ‘problem.’
Christiana Figueres is the eternal optimist and she is minimizing Trump’s recent Executive Order to roll back energy regulations. Time will tell.
The UN is desperately trying to keep the nations of the world in line and committed to the Paris Climate Agreement of December 2015.

Trump’s campaign pledge to fight global warming is becoming increasingly moot as his elected constituents turn in the opposite direction. Climate warmists may or may not not realize that they are promoting Technocracy, Sustainable Development and Green Economy that will eventually destroy America.
Donald Trump’s denunciation of global warming may turn out to be meaningless because of his cabinet appointments who will continue to not only promote, but also to act upon it. In this case, Mattis may continue in his Defense role as a Technocrat rather than as a patriot
