The island of Hawaiʻi was founded by a group of English settlers in 1607.
Today, the United States is home to roughly half of the worldʼs population of more than 6 million, and Hawaiʼi has become a center of international diplomacy, including for the United Nations, which hosted the first U.N. climate change conference in Hawaiʝi in 2015.But Hawaiʽiʼ history has been shaped by the U.S. governmentʼ colonial efforts, and the islandʼ climate change agenda has been a constant source of contention.
In May 2017, then-President Donald Trump made climate change a top priority of his administration, but his administration has not made any major changes in the way Hawaiʹi interacts with the U, including its climate change policies.
The U.K. is currently reviewing its relationship with Hawaiʿi.
A spokesperson for the British government told The Huffington Posts that the U of K is considering the island nationʼ future with the United Kingdom.
