Mayor reaffirms commitment to Paris climate deal
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has signed an executive order reaffirming the U.S. capital’s commitment to the Paris climate change agreement.
The Democratic mayor signed the order on Monday. She is one of nearly 200 mayors who committed to upholding the climate deal after President Trump announced last week that the United States would withdraw from it.
Her administration has set a goal of cutting emissions in the city by 80 percent by 2050.
