President Donald Trump recently signed an executive order rolling back Obama-era rules aimed at curbing climate change. The president said this would put an end to the “war on coal” and “job-killing regulations”.
The Energy Independence Executive Order suspends more than half a dozen measures enacted by his predecessor, and boosts fossil fuels, Â BBC reports .
However, as much as Trump and his oil-soaked administration want to make fossil fuels great again, the global clean energy revolution is gaining speed to the point of being unstoppable. Here are a few reasons the renewables revolution will continue without Trumpâs blessing.

“Itâs at the point of great return. Itâs irreversible. There is no stopping this train.”
The battle for renewable energy as an alternative to fossils fuel goes on.
This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the filmâs release, and the Climate Reality Project is celebrating the impact it had in stirring millions of people worldwide to take climate action. People of all ages, from every part of the world, have begun to share how the film impacted them by using #ait10 on social media and commenting on our Facebook page.
So far, the responses on social media have been overwhelming â and incredibly inspiring. See here.
The Paris climate summit held last month sealed a historic agreement among 196 countries to limit greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to keep earth’s temperature below two degrees Celsius.
The agreement is historic as signatories finally acknowledged the reality and threat of climate change.Â The deal is a positive step that needs to be worked on.
This year — 2016–is the time to keep up the momentum for global action.Â Climate Reality leaders are available to speak at events organised by educational institutions, businesses, communities, NGOs and other organisations. Feel free to contact me to discuss.
The Climate Reality Project Chair Al Gore greets climate leaders and friends at The Wheelers Centre in Melbourne during his Â Australian tour in Â July 2015. Hosted by the Australian Conservation Foundation, Gore thanks supporters and said the movement is winning the fight against climate denial. Â He also met with state government ministers and senior business figures as part of efforts to build global momentum towards the Paris climate change summit later this year.
The Climate Reality Project (CRP) is launching the Road to Paris, a global campaign that will bring togetherÂ citizens, business leaders, non-profit organizations, and NGOs to galvanize climate action and encourage participating countries to commit strong carbon emission cuts. The campaignÂ will urged countries to forged commitments at the 21st Conference Of Parties forÂ theÂ United Nationsâ Framework Convention on Climate Change in December this year.
Road to Paris would include emissions reductions commitments based on national circumstances, a system of periodic review for these commitments, and a long-term goal of net zero carbon emissions.
It will focus on mobilizing public support from the global community and citizens in eight countries that hold strategic significance for the upcoming negotiations, as a building block for a strong international agreement. Target countries include Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Philippines, South Africa, and the United States. The CRP will also have a programmatic presence in Mexico and Europe.
Former United States Vice President Al Gore, chairman of The CRP, said the UN climate negotiations in December mark a crucial opportunity for the international community to come to a bold, universal agreement to make significant emissions reductions commitments, including a long term goal for zero net carbon emissions.
Geneva, 13 Feb 2015 â A key milestone towards a new, universal agreement on climate change was reached in Geneva following seven days of negotiations by over 190 nations.
Nations concluded the Geneva Climate Change Talks by successfully preparing the negotiating text for the 2015 agreement. The agreement is set to be reached in Paris at the end of 2015 and will come into effect in 2020.
Delegates from 194 countries convened in Geneva to continue work following the Lima Climate Change Conference held in Peru last year, which had produced elements for the negotiating textâknown as the Lima Call for Climate Action.
âI am extremely encouraged by the constructive spirit and the speed at which negotiators have worked during the past week,â said Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
âWe now have a formal negotiating text, which contains the views and concerns of all countries. The Lima Draft has now been transformed into the negotiating text and enjoys the full ownership of all countries,â she added.
Climate diplomats from over 195 countriesÂ have been expected to attend the 20th Conference of Parties (COP20) in Lima, Peru scheduled on Dec 1 – 9 to draft and formalize commitments to cap carbon emission targets which will be sealed in Paris this coming April.
The April conference (COP21) Â is significant as it could be the last chance for nations to close a deal which will be culminated in Paris towards the end of 2015. Discussions will focus on limiting earth’s temperature belowÂ 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), a target scientists have said could save humanity from catastrophic global warming.
The forum on Dec 9 expects to generateÂ robust debate and sharing of ideas on technology and solutions that can turn into positive actions to climate-proof the post- development. The event is organised by Climate Action, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) alongside the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP), the forum generates
Stay tuned for more updates.
Update:Â Hereâs a breakdown of the most significant developments at COP20 , the 20th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC: highlights from the draft negotiating text; information and assessment of countriesâ actions; finance; adaptation and loss and damage; pre-2020 ambition; forests and restoration, and cities.
The recently-concluded G20 Summit held in Brisbane, 16-17 Nov, re-confirmed the significance of climate change and the urgency to take collective action to address the climate crisis. Twenty-one points were outlined in the communique, including energy efficiency (No. 18) and climate change (No.19).
Â No.19. “We support strong and effective action to address climate change. Consistent with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its agreed outcomes, our actions will support sustainable development, economic growth, and certainty for business and investment. We will work together to adopt successfully a protocol, another legal instrument or an agreed outcome with legal force under the UNFCCC that is applicable to all parties at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris in 2015. We encourage parties that are ready to communicate their intended nationally determined contributions well in advance of COP21 (by the first quarter of 2015 for those parties ready to do so). We reaffirm our support for mobilising finance for adaptation and mitigation, such as the Green Climate Fund.â
World leaders have made progressive steps leading to the Road to Paris, COP21, next year. During the World Climate Summit 2013, at COP19, Warsaw, Poland, a multi-sector representing businesses, finance, and governments agreed to create a bottom-up public-private initiative to provide practical and impactful solutions to address climate change.
A clear roadmap, realistic and comprehensive targets, bottom-up initiatives and commitments, and various other aspects were being called for.Â These are presented in details in the Road to Paris action statement.Â Visit the Road to Paris 2015 portal here.

The People’s March for Climate Action will kick off tomorrow in major cities all over the world to demand action on climate changeÂ for our common future. This is in time of the UN Climate Summit 2014 which will gather over 140 heads of state and government, alongside business leaders, activists, philanthropists, celebrities, media, and more to tackle the most pressing issues of our time.
The Climate Reality Project, meanwhile, has come up with proposed solutions and reasons for hope. On September 16-17, itÂ broadcasted for 24 hours, exploring 24 reasons to be hopeful on the issue of climate change. Hereâs a look at the good newsÂ the project hasÂ covered:
