LA Will Lead on Climate Goals


LOS ANGELES - This week, the White House announced its intention to remove the United States from the Paris Agreement to combat global climate change. In anticipation, Councilmember Krekorian worked with his City Council colleagues to put Los Angeles on record as supportive of the agreement and committed to continuing to achieve those goals. The motion asks the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to adopt the stipulations of the Paris Agreement as the policy of the City of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is also charging forward with the visionary initiative, championed by Councilmembers Krekorian and Bonin, to achieve a fossil free future by creating a road map to get to 100 percent clean energy in Los Angeles.
If Washington won't participate in the fight to combat climate change, Los Angeles will lead the way.
