Following through on their commitment to the Paris Agreement, City Council is voted yesterday to approve an ordinance “to develop a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, through funding in an amount up to $500,000.00” (Agenda Item 31). The item was part of the meeting’s consent agenda.
When SA joined the Paris Agreement back in June, Mayor Nirenberg called the move “symbolic but significant.”
Spending $500,000 of taxpayer money shows that it was NOT a merely symbolic move!
