Atlanta Intown Paper
by Collin Kelley
Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong introduced a resolution on Monday cementing the City Council’s stance on the Paris Climate Accord. The resolution, which received overwhelming support, expresses commitment to the agreement, which strives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2035. “Atlanta should continue to lead our state and region and commit to doing our part in reaching the goals set in the Paris Agreement by reducing our emissions, seeking cleaner energy sources, and working with our corporate partners in protecting our future,” said Archibong. Last week, Mayor Kasim Reed joined more than 100 U.S. mayors when he announced that Atlanta remains committed to the Paris Climate agreement, despite President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the accord.
