Former Secretary of State John Kerry was a big draw at the International Mayors Climate Summit at Boston University Thursday.

“While Donald Trump may have said he’s out of Paris, the American people have stated unequivocally, they’re in Paris, and they’re going to meet the Paris standards,” Kerry said of the accord.

Host Mayor Marty Walsh announced that several major cities are joining Boston to explore the possibility of collectively buying renewable energy, which the Walsh administration says could save cities millions of dollars.
