Climate Change Daily Vid Dec 5 2017: Barack is back in town - Climate Summit in Chicago.

North American Climate Summit in Chicago.

Chicago hosts the 2017 North American Climate Summit, bringing together Mayors from the U.S., Canada and Mexico to articulate commitments to the Paris Agreement and recognize the impact cities can have in the fight against climate change.

On December 4-6, 2017, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hosted 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.

A highlight of the Summit was the 5th annual 2017 C40 Cities Bloomberg Philanthropies Awards luncheon. The ceremony celebrated mayors and cities undertaking the most ambitious and innovative projects to tackle climate change. Given the increasingly important role cities must play in driving climate action in the United States, the Awards will have a special focus on the leadership of U.S. cities on the global stage.

Mayors gathered for the Summit will be invited to make commitments to move forward with significant emissions reductions regardless of action taken by their respective federal governments. Working together, we can harness existing climate goals and create a regional roadmap for climate leadership. Best Sellers Climate Change

There is something that, on reflection, many adults would surely find repugnant in the idea that they will leave their children a damaged planet that will radically affect their life possibilities.

Kiribati President Anote Tong

"…I remember I had been trying to convince him to visit Kiribati and he did in 2011. He came to Kiribati and I remember he went to visit one of these communities that was flooded every time there is very high tides and there was this young boy who stepped up to the Secretary General and said Mr. Secretary General, you are a very important man you know, is there something that you can do to ensure I will have a future, that I will have a home. And the Secretary General came back and he said Mr. President I have been listening to you at the General Assembly but I never truly understood what it was you trying to communicate but now I do and I feel and I understand I would do everything that I can”
