Michael Bloomberg Outlines How Cities Can Combat Climate Change
Leaders of more than 160 countries are expected to sign the Paris Agreement on climate change Friday, a deal that once seemed unlikely but now appears on track to enter into force years ahead of schedule. The signing is happening on Earth Day.
Last fall, Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson spoke with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. Both say cities can do more to combat climate change.
