“Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer will add his name to a list of Mayor’s pushing back against President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord.
More than 80 mayors from across the country penned a letter to Trump after his Thursday announcement proclaiming to uphold elements of the landmark agreement to combat global warming.
Fischer, who initially said he was unaware of the agreement between the mayors, ultimately decided to take action and add his name to the list – which includes mayors from Austin, Portland and Nashville, among others, according to a spokesman.”
Fischer, the same major who refused to join other mayors in encouraging the EPA to tighten air quality standards, will not lead and only complies when pressured to do so.
