Chicago will become the biggest US city to commit to a future powered by 100% clean power, if the city council backs the move next month.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is one the country’s most visionary politicians. He is someone who should remind America – and the world – the level of leadership the world’s only superpower is capable of delivering. Shifting Chicago to 100% clean power by 2035 was one of 50 bold initiatives contained in Resilient Chicago, a ‘roadmap for addressing the city’s most pressing challenges through the lens of urban resilience’ announced by Mayor Rahm on Valentine’s Day. It is hoped a resolution pinning down the green energy element will be tabled in March.
