Global Climate Action Summit
California’s green-minded Gov. Jerry Brown recently presided over a summit on climate change in San Francisco, where hundreds of regional officials from around the world gathered for a marathon brainstorming session.
It was a fitting venue: California has long been a leader in the fight against global warming, with statewide standards for reducing greenhouse gases and for increasing the use of clean energy. CALmatters, which reported on the conference, has extensively explored California’s response to climate change and many related issues as part of our environmental coverage.
