CARSON CITY — Gov. Steve Sisolak says Nevada will join an alliance of state governors pledging to abide by the goals in the Paris climate accord.
The Democratic governor announced Tuesday that the state would take “bold steps to ensure a better, healthier future” and become “part of the solution.”
He’s joining 22 other governors who’ve signed on to a U.S. Climate Alliance to uphold the accord’s goals despite President Donald Trump’s order to pull the U.S. from the agreement.
Sisolak’s office said Nevada will aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by at least 26 percent in the next six years.
The state will also commit to track and report its progress and work to reduce carbon pollution and promote clean energy.
