Kansas City vs. climate change

kansas_city_today_pod_cover.jpg

How can Kansas City start fighting climate change? A number of small-town mayors from around the metro have already begun, forming the coalition Climate Action KC and creating infrastructures and mindsets that will hopefully outlast their terms in office.

Climate Action KC is a nonprofit regional collaborative that connects more than 100 local and state elected officials with community leaders to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote public health and improve the quality of life across the Kansas City region. But not everyone is on board.

Journalist Barb Shelly spent time with of these some small-town mayors to learn how they're approaching their planet-saving mission.
