Adler responds to U.S. withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement

Friday, June 2, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Yesterday’s news that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement prompted strong reactions from leaders across the world. Mayor Steve Adler made his thoughts on President Donald Trump’s decision known in a statement released that afternoon. In it, he reiterated his belief that cities can tackle climate change in the absence of federal leadership. “Austin will not stop fighting climate change,” he said. “Worldwide, cities will lead in achieving climate treaty goals because so much of what’s required happens at the local level. Regardless of what happens around us, we’re still Austin, Texas.”
