The ECOreport reposts an appeal for Americans to Take action, Stand with 68 Climate Mayors Supporting the Paris Agreement
Press Release from Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles
Trump just pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement to combat global climate change. He denies reality, but we won’t.
Stand with 68 Climate Mayors Supporting the Paris Agreement
We see and feel the effects of climate change every day. It’s not theoretical or debatable; we see the impacts of increased extreme heat and drought here in L.A. Climate change is harming our coastline, our health, and our economy alike.
Representing 38 million Americans
That’s why we in the City of Los Angeles will lead by committing to the goals of the Paris accord, and it’s why I founded Climate Mayors. Already, 68 Mayors, who represent 38 million Americans, have pledged to uphold the commitments in the Paris Agreement if the U.S. drops out. So despite Trump’s attempts to take us backward, Americans and their leaders will persist in confronting climate change.
Stand with Climate Mayors to uphold the vision of the Paris Agreement. Add your name & spread the word.
Together, we can make our families, communities, and world safer and more prosperous.
