How One Industrial City Is Fighting to Go Green

The city of Pueblo, Colo., an industrial town on the Front Range, is trying to transition into a hub for green-energy projects. In February 2017, just a month after President Trump took office, the city council approved a resolution committing Pueblo to power itself on 100% clean energy by 2035, joining other cities and states that are trying to move the needle on climate. A June report from the Rhodium Group, a Lab partner, estimated that U.S. greenhouse-gas emissions will fall by up to 20% by 2025, in part thanks to the momentum created by subnational policies supporting renewables. Rhodium Group director Kate Larsen weighs in on how these efforts are influencing emissions trends.
