Read the full story from WBEZ.

Chicago will soon release a climate action plan — a comprehensive look at the effects of climate change in the city, and actions to address it.

It will be an update to a plan Chicago released in 2008, when it became the first major city in the U.S. to address the growing issue of climate change.

The plan set goals such as expanding clean energy and public transit, and it sought to reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2020.
