Queen City Getting Cool?


The North Carolina Sierra Club praised the City of Charlotte after the city purchased dozens of hybrid vehicles last year to reduce air pollution. Now, with prodding from the Club, North Carolina's largest city is poised to become "cool" by signing onto the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. "The evidence is in," local Sierra Club leader Chatham Olive told a Charlotte TV station on February 20. "It's a real and serious thing we have to address." City council member Anthony Foxx said the city is serious about reducing emissions and participating in regional efforts to improve air quality. Of the twelve target plans to reduce air pollution in the Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, Charlotte is already practicing nine. Learn more about the Sierra Club's Cool Cities campaign.
