    City Hall was bathed in green light on Thursday night, hours after President Trump announced he would be withdrawing the US from the Paris climate agreement.

    On Twitter, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said the choice of decorative light was meant to symbolize Boston standing “with the environment.”

    At a town hall-style meeting on Thursday, Walsh blasted Trump’s decision, saying, “We must do more to protect our environment.”
