@christinemknapp alerted us to this. Christine heads up the marvelous  @GreenworksPhila program in the City of Philadelphia's Office of Sustainability.

The letter to Trump is here: http://ow.ly/PSzu30as1Dz

These Mayors represent more than 41 million Americans in 75 cities across our nation — in red and blue states alike.

"American #ClimateMayors working together to strengthen local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions & support binding federal and global-level policymaking."

This from the text:

  • We write to strongly object to your actions to roll back critically important U.S.. climate policies including the Clean Power Plan and vehicle fuel efficiency standards, as well as proposed budget cuts to the EPA and critical federal programs like Energy Star.

The letter is too long for Trump to read, but it is a sign of how the #Resistance is taking root. At Earth Initiative, we are keenly interested in blunting Trump's attacks on the Environment, and in doing the critical work that needs to be done to blunt and avert the worst of Global Warming.

Please do open and read the letter yourself - and spread the word.

  • "As Mayors, we work with our constituents face-to-face, every day, and they demand that we act on climate to improve quality of life and create economic growth."
