    ''Estoy profundamente entristecido tras escuchar que estos delitos y abusos ocurrieron en Burlington'', dijo el alcalde de la ciudad, Miro Weinberger.

    The mayor of Burlington, Vermont, joined by a coalition of environmental and business leaders, is proposing a statewide revenue-neutral carbon pollution fee that they say would help cut emissions by 37 percent by 2040.

    Mayor Miro Weinberger's proposal was shared Friday at the Renewable Energy Vermont Conference near Burlington.

    Under the proposal, virtually all of the revenue collected would be rebated back out to Vermont households and businesses.

    The announcement came as two towns, Norwich and Hartford, said they hope to increase awareness of climate change and encourage more people to take action by declaring climate emergencies.
