Dozens Of Mayors Expected To Sign Their Own Climate Accord

Mayor Rahm Emanuel speaks during a climate change summit Tuesday in Chicago

President Donald Trump has been criticized by some for choosing to pull the USA out of that worldwide accord.

It remains to be seen if Obama, who took issue with the president calling climate change a "hoax", steps up his Trump shade game.

Mayors from several US cities are expected to sign a promise to reduce greenhouse emissions on Tuesday.

Other mayors attending include Valerie Plante of Montreal and Miguel Angel Mancera of Mexico City.

Chicago officials billed the North American Climate Summit, which began Monday evening, as the first of its kind for the city.

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

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

U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to withdraw the United States from the agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Some mayors have specifically agreed to commitments to expand public transportation and invest in natural climate solutions such as tree canopy and vegetation.

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

In a statement, Emanuel said he was proud that the agreement to continue fighting climate change would be signed in his home city.

"They're entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts", he said.
