Mayor Richard J. Kaplan has joined almost 1000 Mayors since 2005 and throughout the US, in signing the US Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement. The US Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement encourages the federal and state governments to enact policies and programs to meet or beat the target of reducing global warming pollution levels to seven percent below 1990 levels by 2012, including efforts to: reduce the United States’ dependence on fossil fuels and accelerate the development of clean, economical energy resources and fuel-efficient technologies such as conservation, methane recovery for energy generation, waste to energy, wind and solar energy, fuel cells, efficient motor vehicles and biofuels. It also provides that as a city we will strive to meet or exceed Kyoto Protocol targets for reducing global warming pollution by taking actions in our own operations and communities . Within the Agreement are numerous examples of how a city can strive to meet or exceed the targets, many of which Lauderhill has already adopted.
