Washington city takes clean energy pledge

The Associated Press

A Washington city has pledged to have clean, renewable energy powering its homes, offices and other buildings by 2025.

EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) — A Washington city has pledged to have clean, renewable energy powering its homes, offices and other buildings by 2025.

The Herald reported Tuesday Edmonds is the first Washington community to join the Sierra Club's national campaign to get city halls and statehouses to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

The Edmonds City Council set the goal for its community after President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement.

The multinational accord aims to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions beginning in 2020 in an effort to soften forecast changes in the earth's climate that could be harmful or even catastrophic for humans.

The resolution requires the city to have a plan for achieving its goal by Nov. 1, 2018.
