Nashua and Portsmouth have joined a growing number of cities around the country committing to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

In the days since President Donald Trump decided to pull the U.S. out of the global climate accord, over 270 mayors across the country have signed on to a plan to stay in.

Now the cities of Portsmouth and Nashua have added their names to the list. Jack Blalock is mayor of Portsmouth.

“I’m very proud to say that we did it. And even though we can only control what we can control here in Portsmouth, every little bit counts.”

Other organizations in the state, like Dartmouth College and the Gilsum-based skincare company Badger, have made similar pledges.

Governor Chris Sununu meanwhile, says New Hampshire will not join a group of states pledging to stay in the agreement.
