The Mayor of Traverse City, Jim Carruthers, believes President Trump made the wrong decision when he pulled the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.
President Trump says the agreement is a raw deal for American workers and taxpayers.
According to reports:
Carruthers added his name to the list of 180 mayors representing 51 million Americans who pledged to "adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement. We will intensify efforts to meet each of our cities’ current climate goals, push for new action to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius target, and work together to create a 21st century clean energy economy...And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we’ll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks. The world cannot wait – and neither will we."
Other Michigan leaders who signed the agreement include Mayor Christopher Taylor (Ann Arbor), Mayor Rosalyn Bliss (Grand Rapids), Mayor Brenda Hess (Buchanan), Mayor Daniel Guzzi (Rockwood), Mayor Mike Fournier (Royal Oak), and Mayor Amanda Maria Edmonds (Ypsilanti)."
