This year’s climate change conference comes after President Trump has vowed to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord, but there are still a number of U.S. delegations in Bonn. One is a coalition of U.S. lawmakers, universities, companies and faith groups that is staging an anti-Trump revolt by rejecting Trump’s action and declaring, “We are still in.” On Saturday, a group of protesters, many of whom were Native American, disrupted California Governor Jerry Brown’s speech at Bonn, calling on California to ban fracking, yelling, “Keep it in the ground!”
