How Landlocked Edmonton Is Planning For Climate ChangePlay
Mayors from across the country and around the world are in Boston as the United States Conference of Mayors begins. On Thursday, the city hosted the International Mayors Climate Summit, focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing cities for the challenges of climate change.
One of the mayors grappling with those issues is Don Iveson (@doniveson), mayor of Edmonton, Alberta. The city is landlocked, so rising sea levels aren't the problem. But a recent report from Edmonton found the city is expected to warm twice as fast as coastal cities.
