Los Angeles Daily News-
Mayor Eric Garcetti signed an executive directive on Monday, Feb. 10, that he said enhances provisions of the city’s Green New Deal to confront climate issues.
“The science could not be clearer and the stakes could not be higher,” Garcetti said. “We must act this decade to save the planet and create a more equitable, prosperous and healthy future for our children and grandchildren.”
The directive was called “L.A.’s Green New Deal: Leading By Example,” which is the 25th executive directive Garcetti has signed since taking office. The theme of the signing was “A Decade of Action,” in reference to scientific reports that claim the planet needs to stop using fossil fuels by 2030.
