It provides $369 billion for climate-related programs and energy spending.•Chicago agreed to reach 100% clean energy (!) by 2025.•San Diego is trying to ban all fossil fuels used in new residential and business construction.•The Federal Transit Administration predicts the U.S. will soon see double the number of zero-emissions buses – thanks to $1.6 billion for transit operators, new buses, etc.
