Here are the mayors refusing to honor Trump's dismissal of the Paris Climate Agreement

Below is a statement from the Climate Mayors in response to President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Thursday, June 1st 2017

The President’s denial of global warming is getting a cold reception from America’s cities.

As 173 US Mayors representing nearly 49 million Americans, we will adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement. We will intensify efforts to meet each of our cities’ current climate goals, push for new action to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius target, and work together to create a 21st century clean energy economy.

We will continue to lead. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we’ll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks.

The world cannot wait — and neither will we.

And here are the 173 mayors who refuse to accept President Trump’s withdrawal from the treaty and instead, vow to adopt the historic agreement of their own accord.
