President Trump announced Thursday that the U.S. will be withdrawing from the Paris accord -- the global agreement, reached in 2015, to set targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and limiting the rise in average global temperatures. But the President's denial of global warming got a cold reception from America's cities. A group of 83 mayors -- including Park City's own Jack Thomas -- say they will continue to uphold the commitments of the Paris Agreement. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.

Tough but fair, Leslie is the woman most of Park City wakes up with every weekday morning. Leslie has been at KPCW since 1990 and her years at KPCW have given her depth and insight, guiding her as she asks local leaders and citizens the questions on everyone’s minds during the live interviews of the Local News Hour.
