A green glow emerged on some buildings and structures in major US cities Thursday night, in observance of the Paris Agreement on climate change – despite President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the pact.
Trump’s move prompted criticism from many places of the world and in the US. In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reportedly directed One World Trade Center and the Kosciuszko Bridge to be lit with green lights:
Cuomo also sent out a tweet with a photo of the bridge: “World: the Empire State stands with you. New York shines green for our planet, our health and our children’s future.”
Green lights also shined on the Wilson Building in Washington D.C., to which Mayor Muriel Bowsertweeted: “We have an obligation to protect our environment for generations to come.”
