California governor to Trump on climate: "Wake up"

"Democrats can't do this alone", Brown said Thursday, asking the Chamber of Commerce for help in rounding up Republicans.

In Beijing later this week, Governor Brown will host the Under2 Clean Energy Forum with China's Ministry of Science and Technology and participate in events associated with the Clean Energy Ministerial, an annual meeting of national energy ministers and other high-level delegates from almost two dozen countries.

Experts said the Golden State, which has the sixth largest economy in the world, was well placed to pick up the mantle of leadership on the global stage given its aggressive policies on climate issues. Expanding and strengthening the commitment to combat climate change with additional partners in states and cities across the US sends a strong message to our global allies that despite the decision by the White House to retreat, the American people will nonetheless move forward to fulfill the goals of the Paris Agreement.

It's unclear when discussions between the three governors began, but they announced their new pact within an hour of Trump's announcement.

In Chengdu and Nanjing, he will attend events dedicated to clean technology and environmental protection, in an effort to forge greater regional climate collaboration and action.

Brown leaves Friday for his second trip to China as governor. "Because what we do today will create irreversible consequences in the years ahead".

Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, voiced his concerns on Twitter and included a picture of a letter signed by 23 other top-drawer companies including Google and Facebook that ran as a full-age advertisement in The New York Times last month. "This is very serious".

Referring to Trump, the governor said "California is against him".

Brown will be attending an worldwide climate summit in China.

"I think it slows down this rush toward punitive measures against the United States industrial base and mining industry, " Hamilton said. "But that may take a few years". It is not about one nation being the victor. This is mutually beneficial. Jerry Brown issued a clarion call for America to stop the president's "outrageous" actions. "We are showing the way forward and we are sending a clear message to the rest of the world".

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Thursday in Berlin that China will continue to implement the commitment of the Paris climate deal and "move towards the 2030 goal step-by-step steadfastly".

Even if other countries change their position, China will continue its plan of innovation, coordination, green development, opening-up and sharing, she said.
