Other governments should align with California climate change initiatives, governor says


From Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

California Governor Jerry Brown says that climate change must take centre stage in the civic dialogue of America, and could prove a key issue in the 2016 US presidential elections. A long-term advocate for environmental initiatives, Brown explores the economics of curbing greenhouse gases, the challenges of gaining support to achieve this from Republicans and religious leaders, and the significance of California’s high-speed rail project in this exclusive interview.

“This comes at a cost but of course climate change is also a cost…we need the rest of the world to come along with us. My strategy is to keep California at the forefront but to do everything humanly possible to bring other states and other nations into alignment with what proper climate change policy requires.”
