Make Conway a Climate City

This petition had 75 supporters

President Trump announced that he will abandon the Paris international climate agreement, which was adopted by nearly every nation in 2015 and aims to limit global climate change. From increased tidal flooding, to worsening droughts, to longer wildfire seasons, communities across the United States and around the globe are already experiencing the costly and harmful impacts of climate change.

The overwhelming majority of Americans, including those who voted for President Trump, support climate action, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. In fact, hundreds of US states, cities, and companies have signaled their determination to take climate action, to protect our communities from the impacts of climate change, and to reap the economic benefits of the clean energy revolution.

Cities have an enormous opportunity to make even more of an impact. The potential impact of cities taking climate action in three sectors alone—buildings, transportation and waste—would make an impact greater than the total emissions of the United States and the 28 member states of the European Union combined.

Let us urge Mayor Bart Castleberry to pledge to become a Climate Mayor and support the principles of the Paris Agreement.
