Mayors back clean energy club

(USA)

More than 100 American Mayors have now signed up to an initiative committing their towns and cities to a future powered by 100% renewable energy.

This week Philadelphia Mayor, Jim Kenney, became the 100th to join the Mayors for 100% Clean Energy project supported by the Sierra Club’s Ready for 100 campaign.

He said: “Since the White House has opted to step away from its obligations to this issue, all cities – including Philadelphia – must step up. The hotter, wetter, more extreme weather brought by climate change disproportionately harms our city’s most vulnerable residents. Transitioning to a just energy system that is clean and affordable for all will slow these changes and make Philadelphia a better place for current residents and future generations.”

Climate change is on the agenda in Miami Beach this weekend as politicians gather for the 85th annual U.S. Conference of Mayors. A vote will be held on the resolution: 100% Renewable Energy in American Cities to make support for 100% clean energy a major policy focus over the next 10 years.
