Global Covenant of Mayors to fight climate change

Independent 29th June 2017,More than 7,400 cities and local councils have signed up to a ‘Global
Covenant of Mayors’ to fight climate change, galvanised by Donald Trump’s
dismissal of scientists’ concerns for the future. “What President Trump has
done is he has – unintentionally as he does with so many things – organised
and focussed people who have been doing a number of good things in hundreds
of different places.

“Now mayors are communicating and working in a fashion
that I have not seen during my seven years in office. Mr Reed said Atlanta
had committed to be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy by 2035, among
a raft of other measures designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And
he said, regardless of Mr Trump’s policies, American cities had the power
to meet the carbon targets laid out in the Paris Agreement, which was
ratified by Barack Obama.
