Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

Statement: Mayor Garcetti on Supreme Court Clean Power Plan Decision

“Climate change is the most critical threat of our time. It is already warming the earth, raising our sea levels, and affecting our food supply — and it is our responsibility to stop it. Last year, Los Angeles made a firm commitment in our Sustainable City pLAn to end our dependence on coal by 2025, and we know that the future of our planet, economy, and children’s health depends on cities across the world moving forward with us. I am disappointed that theSupreme Court is taking a step backwards by putting a hold on President Obama’s sensible clean power plan. But here’s the good news: no matter what happens on the federal level, local leaders will not ignore the danger of complacency, or the urgent need for immediate action.”- Mayor Eric Garcetti
