Mayors sign climate charter at summit; Obama speaks

Obama to Speak as World Mayors Sign Chicago Climate Charter

On December 4-6, 2017, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will host the North American Climate Summit in concert with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy partners, bringing together leaders from the U.S., Canada and Mexico to sign the Chicago Climate Charter and commit to addressing climate change at the local level.

Former President Barack Obama will speak to dozens of mayors and leaders from around the world Tuesday as they prepare to sign what's being called a "first-of-its-kind worldwide agreement on climate change" in Chicago.

He explained mayors are stepping up because there's no consensus from national governments.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama, in Paris on a five-day worldwide trip, had a two-hour private lunch with French President Emmanuel Macron and gave a speech to business leaders.

Obama talked about the lack of US leadership on climate issues in Paris on Saturday.

Chicago's Chief Sustainability Officer Chris Wheat says the idea is to "fill the void" the Trump administration has left.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said city residents will be victims as a result.

"We can not afford to be cautious", she said. Trump has said the terms of the agreement should be more favourable to businesses and taxpayers. It also calls for them to work with scientific and academic experts to find solutions.

Emanuel said Trump and his environmental officials are in denial on climate change.

There are many specific pledges in the charter signed today, including: investing in public transit and reducing the carbon footprint in new and existing buildings and infrastructure.

Obama told the audience that American voters should "make it a prerequisite" to vote for elected officials who say they are paying attention to global warming.
