Want to support the Paris agreement? Stop driving so much, LARelease Date: 2017-06-02
The decision to back the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord sparked an overwhelming wave of support from city governments to honor the global agreement. But what can you do? The most important thing you can do to support climate action is a lot more simple than you think—and it’s something you can do every day.
As of this morning, 83 mayors and counting—including the Southern California mayors of LA, Long Beach, and Santa Monica—had pledged to adopt the Paris accord with or without federal commitment. As part of that pledge, many of those cities, including LA, Long Beach, and Santa Monica, are moving to 100 percent clean energy. Just this week, California passed a similar plan to have the entire state running on renewable energy by 2045.
