As we recently discussed on the Jeff Oravits Show, President Trump is pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. The Prescott City Council recently declined joining the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. Meanwhile, in Flagstaff, Mayor Coral Evans has signed up to to support the Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. She joins Mayor Greg Stanton of Phoenix.
Flagstaff is taking this a step further by creating their own climate action plan. As Elisha Dorfsmith recently discussed on the Jeff Oravits Show, this plan has already received a huge jump start with a general outline created behind the scenes. The plan, to this point, heavily pushes social justice. Now the city is asking for volunteers to join a steering committee to take this to the next level. Eventually this will wind up in front of the Flagstaff City Council for adoption.
