In July 2006, the mayors of Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton signed the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, calling on Congress to reduce global climate change and pledging their cities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to below 1990 levels.
If you live in one of these cities, please support these important efforts — and if you live in another borough or township, urge your municipality to sign on right away.
Read our list of ideas for implementing the Climate Protection Agreement.
Additional information is available from the US Conference of Mayors.
The Alliance is now helping the cities to implement their pledge, including an effort to get major Lehigh Valley institutions to sign on. For more information, or if you can help in this important effort, please send us an email.
