Hold Wilmington to Paris Climate Standards

This petition had 1,215 supporters

In the wake of President Trump’s decision to back out of the Paris Climate Agreement, 68 (and growing!) mayors across the United States announced that in order to protect their communities they would uphold the agreement’s goals on a local scale and accelerate their cities’ own efforts to combat climate change. 

Wilmington should join this vanguard of cities pledging firm to the Paris agreement and to acting locally to safeguard the environment.

Because of Wilmington’s dependence on our environment -- from our tourism industry that thrives on our beautiful scenery, to acting as a buttress to environmental degradation occurring further inland -- we do not have the luxury of ignoring climate change and its adverse economic impact to our city.

Sign to ask Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo to join the Climate Mayors.

The "Climate Cities” represent over 44 million Americans in both red and blue states working together for a planet that affects all of us, and for an economy in which we can thrive. Mayor Saffo and the Wilmington City Council have an opportunity to join this lead. Join me in urging them to pass a resolution holding Wilmington to the Paris Accord Climate standards.
