  1. Awesome…

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

  2. City governments commit to work with young activists on implementing policies that cut carbon emissions more quickly.

    With activists such as Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg and advocates in the Extinction Rebellion movement taking an increasingly visible stand on climate change, public officials feel growing pressure to respond, mayors gathered in Copenhagen said on Friday.

    Young protesters demonstrating across the world are driving cities to step up action on global warming, not least because politicians keep coming face-to-face with them while going about their business, city leaders from Seattle to Freetown told an international climate conference held in the capital of Denmark.

    “If you want to walk the streets of some of the biggest cities in Poland, you’ve got to do something about climate change,” Warsaw’s mayor, Rafal Trzaskowski, told the C40 World Mayors Summit.

    “The pressure, especially from young people, is just enormous,” he said. “They are fed up with declarations, with goals and priorities…They want to see results.”

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.aljazeera.com/ajimpact/world-mayors-copenhagen-pledge-climate-191011221247492.html) reduced by 86%. (I’m a bot)
