Re: The proposed Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement resolution
In so many words, Mayor Oberg said at Tuesday’s city council meeting that to support the resolution was akin to being against everything Donald Trump stands for; that it was only a political statement. It is quite sad that council members would not even second the proposal because they, too, saw the agreement resolution in this light. I suppose that this perspective is what it takes to choose to ignore the ever creeping effects of our warming and changing climate. What will ignoring these effects now cost us in the future?
