In Cities Across The US, Buildings Are Lighting Up Green In Protest Over Trump’s Decision To Exit Paris Agreement


In the wake of President Trump’s announcement that he will exit the Paris Climate Agreement, it seems that not everyone is standing behind the commander in chief. Cities across the US are lighting up major buildings green in order to show their support for the agreement. Their actions could also be seen as indicating resistance to Trump’s decision.

Andrew Cuomo, New York’s Governor, ordered both the One World Trade Center and the Kosciuszko Bridge to be lit green in support against the White House.
He told the press, “The White House’s reckless decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord has devastating repercussions not only for the United States, but for our planet.” He continued, “this administration is abdicating its leadership and taking a backseat to other countries in the global fight against climate change.”

Both Bill de Blasio, New York City’s Mayor, and Marty Walsh, Boston’s Mayor showed their dissatisfaction by lighting up their city halls in protest over Trump’s decision.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser also demonstrated his stance against Trump’s decision by lighting up the Wilson Building green and tweeting his actions were “in honor of DC’s continued commitment” to the Paris Agreement.

This wasn’t just happening in the US. Countries all over the world, including Mexico and Canada, also demonstrated their continued alliance to the Paris Agreement by lighting up major builds.

Overall, it seems that despite the White House’s decision to exit the agreement, cities and states across the country and all over the world are not happy. We wonder how long this type of protest will continue. Comment and let us know how you feel about buildings being lit up in green. Do you think it’ll make a difference?
