New York City's New Climate Mobilization Act May 06 2019, 0 Comments

New York City has passed the most aggressive climate bill in the nation in April, and the city "got it done in a truly New York way," writes City Lab. The Climate Mobilization Act is the city's effort to abide by the Paris climate-change agreement even after the Trump administration withdrew the U.S. from the global accords.

It is an effort to make the road by walking—it's not something anyone knows how to do until everyone commits to doing it, and the fact that this legislation is sweeping in its scope is why City Lab believes it stands a chance of succeeding.
