The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is officially backing the Paris climate accord.  The District’s board of directors voted unanimously yesterday to support the global climate agreement that President Trump decided to abandon earlier this year.  District spokeswoman Lisa Fasano said the Bay Area agency is the first air quality district in the country to formally commit to battle climate change by reducing greenhouse gases.
