Scholastic News -- Edition 5/6;10/9/2006, Vol. 75 Issue 5, p2
The article highlights a conference of a group of mayors to discuss how to reduce U.S. cities' contributions to global warming. The Mayors signed letters pledging to go back to their cities to look for ways to reduce the use of fossil fuels. They met in Alaska to see the effects of global warming in that state, where glaciers are shrinking rapidly. Mayor John Engen of Missoula, Montana noticed major changes in his city as a result of global warming.
