Climate Macho

“Mexico would will join a pledge made earlier this year by Obama and Trudeau to reduce methane emissions by 40% to 45% by 2015.” (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/jun/28/us-canada-and-mexico-pledge-50-of-power-from-clean-energy-by-2025)

Not ducking the Paris Agreement, but a retrospective goal would will might be more challenging.

“Twelve supporters from the Reclaim the Power group bared their bottoms on the steps of the Department of Energy and Climate Change in Whitehall, in protest at new climate secretary Amber Rudd supporting gas power and capping on onshore wind power subsidies. The group’s message read ‘wind not gas’.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/01/seven-activists-arrested-during-protests-against-fossil-fuels-across-the-uk)

“Large polluters will find these conclusions to their linking since they may escape a meaningful pollution price signal for at least another decade. With renewable energy and efficiency targets barely above business as usual trends, a carbon market that will remain irrelevant for a decade and nothing to reign in coal power, Europe’s early efforts to combat climate change and advance clean energy have been set adrift.” (http://www.wwf.org.uk/about_wwf/press_centre/index.cfm?uNewsID=7354)

Unlinked large polluters should seek opportunities in a coaligarchy.
