Good news: Pittsburgh joins the resistance

König Donald sagte in seiner Inszenierung zum Ausstieg aus dem Klimaschutz, er sei den Bürgern von Pittsburgh verpflichtet und nicht denen von Paris. Der Bürgermeister von Pittburgh hat daraufhin jetzt angekündigt, dass seine Stadt bis 2035 komplett auf erneuerbare Energien umsteigt. Well played, Mr. Peduto, und ein echter Hoffnungsschimmer in dieser kranken Story, die derzeit durch die Tagesschau flimmert.

Just hours after Donald Trump claimed to be represent the voters of Pittsburgh in his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement, Mayor Bill Peduto today announced his support for a goal of powering Pittsburgh entirely with clean and renewable energy by 2035.

Mayor Peduto joins a growing coalition of Mayors for 100% Clean Energy who have similarly announced support for a goal of powering their communities with 100 percent renewable energy such as wind and solar.

“Donald Trump said he was elected by voters of Pittsburgh, but his misguided decision to withdraw from the Paris climate does not reflect the values of our city,” said Mayor Peduto. “Pittsburgh will not only heed the guidelines of the Paris agreement, we will work to move towards 100 percent clean and renewable energy for our future, our economy, and our people”
