U.S. mayors to fight climate change

(Continued)

HOUSTON —

Carmel put roundabouts at 84 intersections. Studies have shown such traffic patterns can cut down on emissions. Now, Finch plans to implement a similar plan in his community.

“Mayors have to go to the grocery store and listen to families complain about kids with asthma ... that their flooding is getting worse,” Finch said, pointing out that the steps in the resolution would also give cities more parks and green space.

“This is not a cause for mayors. This is a pragmatic problem that requires pragmatic solutions,” Finch said.
