Bradley, 30 Others Sign Environmental Pledge

Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley and the leaders of more than 30 other municipalities from around the globe pledged Friday to commit their cities to a broad set of environmental initiatives to allay global warming and reverse the ravages of pollution.

The 12-point resolution was drafted by delegates to the first International Local Government Summit on the Environment, hosted by the city of Los Angeles and the Greenhouse Crisis Foundation.

Among other suggestions, the participants agreed to recommend that cities establish recycling programs, place controls on ozone-destroying chemicals, plant trees that cut down on carbon-dioxide levels and increase the use of mass transit.
