And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act. Paris to Pittsburgh follows the mayors, governors, urban planners, and everyday citizens who are pioneering climate solutions, inspiring change in their own communities, and working to ensure continued US progress in the fight against climate change.
