From Austin Blackmon, City of Boston – Chief of Environment, Energy, and Open Space:
“This afternoon the White House announced that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. This action does not change the course of Boston’s climate initiatives. The City of Boston and Mayor Walsh are committed to addressing climate change head on and will accelerate Boston’s efforts to become carbon neutral by 2050.
Yesterday, Mayor Walsh held a press conference urging President Trump not to pull out of the Paris climate agreement. You can read Boston’s message on the Paris Agreement here and watch a short video of the press conference here.
Greenovate Boston and the City will continue to reduce our carbon emissions, invest in clean energy, support green jobs, and help Bostonians take climate action.
Please help us spread the word by sharing the Mayor’s message far and wide with your friends, family, and neighbors and ask them to join us in protecting the climate.”
Let’s all do what we can to help protect our planet.
