Good on ya Mayor Bowser part two:

From the Mayor:

“Today, I am flying to Mexico City to represent the District of Columbia at a gathering of mayors and other leaders of the world’s major cities who are working to fight and mitigate climate change. We are holding this meeting – the largest since the Paris climate accords last year – because we know the health and well-being of future generations depend on the actions we take now. This summit is a remarkable opportunity to learn about cutting-edge work being done in other global cities and to share lessons from the work we are pioneering here in Washington, DC.

Today, Washington, DC is at the forefront of decisive, effective action to slow and adapt to climate change. Since 2006, we have reduced our annual carbon emissions by more than 23 percent. We are committed to cutting our greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2032, and by 80 percent by 2050.

Under my administration, we have made ground-breaking deals to generate more than one-third of the power used in government buildings with wind and locally generated solar electricity. In fact, by 2032 – just 16 years from now – we will derive at least one-half of the entire city’s electricity from renewable resources.

In Washington, DC, we will tackle climate change head on as we continue our hard work in building a resilient city for generations to come.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser”

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
