International climate finance is a central part of global climate action. The United States—as both the wealthiest nation and the largest carbon polluter in history—has a particularly strong responsibility to contribute its fair share. We therefore call on the City of Seattle to lead on climate action and help make up for the reneged promises and misguided actions of the Trump Administration. The City of Seattle should:
• Make a contribution to international climate finance, to help fulfill City Council Resolution 31757. The resolution affirms Seattle’s “commitment to meet or exceed goals established in the Paris Agreement” and recognizes international climate finance as central to doing so. • Lead a broader coalition of individuals, organizations, companies, cities, states, counties, and municipalities across the United States in contributing to international climate finance.
Individuals and organizations can both sign onto this letter below.
