FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Broward County commissioners have officially opposed President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Accord.

On Tuesday, the commission agreed to continue to work to prepare for climate change which includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting clean energy projects.

Commissioners said Broward would be directly affected by Trump’s pull back from the international agreement to take action to reduce climate change, citing “flooding, beach erosion, extreme weather, and saltwater intrusion,” according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Broward has partnered with several neighboring counties to deal with rising sea levels and other environmental issues.
