Get Real on Climate Change | Steven Fulop - Jersey City Mayor

huffington post: "What's more, we must develop our cities around transit and invest in more and enhanced public transportation. In Jersey City, we are focusing our next wave of residential and commercial development on our city center in Journal Square, which is a hub for both bus and PATH train service. We are also advocating at the state and federal level for funding to increase service to accommodate the thousands of new residents expected in the coming years.

All of these initiatives are achievable and cities must lead the way as Congress will not be acting in the near term. Quite literally, acting locally is the start to achieving global protection. Climate change is real. We must act or suffer the horrible consequences if we don't."
