Mayors Convene in Seattle to Discuss Climate Protection
The nation’s mayors discussed the need for greener, more walkable cities at a recent US Conference of Mayors, in Seattle, WA, where the focus was on climate protection. Many agreed that the federal government isn’t taking enough action against climate change, and understand the need to take action in their own cities. According to Mayor Nickels, Seattle has already begun to reduce greenhouse gases by promoting the consumption of locally produced food, distributing 300,000 high efficiency shower heads, and encouraging the use of non-motorized grass mowers.
