More than 270 US mayors representing 58 million Americans have now announced that they remain committed to the goals of the Paris Agreement, and 30 cities across the nation have upped the ante by officially committing to transition to using 100 percent clean, renewable energy.

The Paris pact was signed by the United States and 194 other nations in 2015. Tillerson himself said during his confirmation hearings in January that the threat of climate change requires a global response and that it was important for the U.S.to remain a part of the 195-nation deal. The mayors of Aspen, Boulder, Breckenridge, Denver, Edgewater, Fort Collins, Lafayette, Lakewood, Longmont and Telluride have joined Vail in upholding the strictures of the agreement in their cities and towns.

"We can not do better (than Paris), and we don't have the luxury of more time", she said. "As a global company, Vail Resorts believes we have a unique responsibility to protect the incredible natural landscapes and environment that surround our mountain resorts and those across our planet".

"Vail Resorts will redouble our efforts to find significant ways to minimize our carbon footprint through reducing our energy use to help address one of the most serious challenges facing our worldwide community".
