The US government is warning people to avoid Hawaii, saying it’s dangerous to travel there due to rising sea levels and rising air pollution.
US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt is expected to issue the warning on Monday, following the announcement that the state had reached a landmark agreement with China on curbing CO2 emissions.
The agreement will include a “sea level rise” and a “air pollution mitigation strategy” that is designed to protect Hawaii’s health.
The EPA is warning that “a number of factors” are contributing to the rising sea level, and that this could be a factor in the recent spike in deaths.
The agency also warned that the air quality in Hawaii has been “exacerbated” by air pollution and “the risk of serious illness and death associated with air pollution exposure.”
It noted that air pollution levels were at record levels in Hawaii in June and July, the most since records began in 1979.
The new air pollution plan will include measures to reduce the risk of air pollution, improve air quality, and reduce the number of deaths associated with the air pollution in Hawaii.
However, the agency said it “strongly encourages all people and communities to take steps to reduce their exposure to air pollution.”
It added that the plan would not affect people who live in Hawaii’s coastal areas, and warned that those living in the state’s islands, including those in Hawaii Island and Maui, should “take additional steps to limit their exposure”.
It added: “Hawaii has been experiencing an increase in air pollution since late June and early July.
“Air pollution is an important driver of rising sea-level, which could lead to serious health impacts. “
“People living in coastal areas should take additional steps as they reduce their emissions of pollutants such as CO2 and particulate matter from their homes, vehicles, and industries. “
“Hawaiians are urged to take actions to reduce and control air pollution by limiting outdoor activity and using other methods of reducing their exposure.” “
According to the EPA, Hawaii is the second-highest-polluted state in the US, and is home to more than 3.5 million people. “

The governor of Hawaii, David Ige, who was appointed by President Donald Trump in 2017, said that the deal with China “shows the US is finally moving in the right direction”.
He said the agreement is important because it “paves the way for Hawaii to become a leader in air quality”.
However, Pruitt said that there are no “silver bullets” to combat rising CO2 levels in the Pacific Ocean.
He told the New York Times that “in a warming world, we need to do everything possible to slow climate change and limit the amount of CO2 we emit”.
In an interview with ABC News, Pruitt also said that it is “a very serious situation” and said the US must continue to take action to combat climate change.
Pruitt told ABC that the US “needs to do more to reduce our carbon footprint, because we’ve got to keep growing the economy and the workforce”.
Pruitt also praised the EPA for its new plan, saying that it will “help the economy grow and create more jobs” in the United States.
