Clashing with Trump, California governor says to launch climate satellite

How far can California push the nation — and the world? Jerry Brown's climate summit may provide the answer

The portal will therefore serve a critical function by capturing the breadth and depth of this action from the "real world" economy, gradually incorporating new data over the coming months from more than 12,000 stakeholders, and capturing many more commitments going forward.

Trump said the global agreement was unfair to the United States and would hurt the economy. The mayor of Paris and other top officials who were instrumental in securing the 2015 U.N. climate accord open the California summit by talking about the importance of continuing the path to clean energy, despite President Donald Trump's withdrawal of the United States from the pact.

Jerry Brown's climate change summit in San Francisco.

Last year Mr Trump said he would pull the U.S. out of the deal and negotiate a new "fair" deal for USA businesses.

Members of the group 1000 Grandmothers protest outside the Moscone Center in San Francisco where the Global Climate Action Summit is being held, on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018. "But that's not enough", Leila Salazar-Lopez, executive director of US-based Amazon Watch, said during a protest action outside the event's venue. Conceived as an effort to preserve and promote that momentum, the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States and his subsequent decision, fulfilling a campaign promise, to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, gave the summit yet another goal.

Gore, a Democrat, also criticized Trump for denying the death toll from last year's hurricane in Puerto Rico was almost 3,000 people.

The move comes as an effort to "streamline" the social studies curriculum in the state, The Dallas Morning News first reported . In addition, the board voted to add famed evangelist Billy Graham back to the curriculum following his death in February.

"Cities, states, investors, and businesses are all in", Gore said.

"With Governor Brown's order, California establishes the most ambitious carbon neutrality commitment of any major economic jurisdiction in the world - of more than 20 countries and at least 40 cities, states, and provinces planning to go carbon neutral by mid-century or sooner", explained the Governor's office in a press release.

"China's leadership has been truly outstanding and I want to repeat the gratitude that people around the world feel for China and California", Gore said.

Under the terms of the legislation, all utility companies must get 60% of their energy from renewable sources by 2030. "As the greatest custodians of the Paris Agreement, mayors of the world's great cities have once again shown that cities are getting the job done".

Government leaders, businesses and civil society representatives flocked to the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, to attend the GCAS, a summit from September 12 to 14. "I know that other cities will look to our example, and I implore them to join us".

Just ahead of the GCAS, Indian companies including UltraTech Cement, Mahindra Vehicle Manufacturers Ltd, Mahindra Heavy Engines Ltd, and Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies announced climate actions they would undertake.
