Announcement Will Happen on Stage at the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting
Mayor Eric Garcetti, along with fellow Mayors Annise Parker of Houston and Michael Nutter of Philadelphia, will announce the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda on stage at the 2014 Clinton Global Initiaitve Annual Meeting. The Action Agenda commits mayors to local efforts on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and to supporting efforts for binding federal and global-level policy making.
Forged by the mayors of the largest three cities serving on Preisdent Obama's Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience, the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda seeks to by-pass the gridlock in Washington to fight climate change in cities, where the majority of greenhouse gas emissions occur. The mayors of the first three cities to commit to the Action Agenda-- Los Angeles, Houston, and Philadelphia-- will work to enlist other cities across the nation to adopt the Angenda.
"Our cities are on the front lines of the impacts of climate change, with 70% of emissions in the US from cities--mayors must confront this challenge not only at the local level, but also by calling for binding emission reductions at the federal and global level," said Mayor Garcetti. "I look forward to working with Mayors Parker and Nutter to galvanize our fellow mayors across the nation to join us."Read More Blog >>
