Mayor reaf­firms com­mit­ment to Paris cli­mate deal

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

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.
