California’s Governor Jerry Brown is partnering with former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg in an effort to gather climate data to measure how much greenhouse gas emissions are being cut. Brown is emerging as a climate crusader in the U.S. and unofficial envoy on a global stage.
His message to international audiences is there are forces within the U.S. that still care about continuing the effort to fight global warming. The effort stands in contrast to President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.
The governor has been named as a “special advisor for states and regions” by the United Nations at a November gathering in Germany, and he is also organizing a climate summit in San Francisco next year. Brown unveiled plans this week to extend California’s cap-and-trade system.
