Trump’s Energy Week Policy is Rejected by Nation’s Mayors

It’s “Energy Week,” during which President Trump plans to promote US policy energy at events that focus on local and state energy issues. His stance is, of course, built on American production of oil and natural gas, and withdrawal from the Paris Climate Change agreement. But pushback has already kicked off the week. Leaders of more than 250 cities at the US Conference of Mayors have unanimously committed to renewable sources as the sole urban power within the next 20 years. Most mayors also signed on to uphold the terms of the Paris accords. One reward was immediate: former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that his charity will pay out $200 million as seed money to cities to deal with urban issues—including fighting global warming.
