California Governor Brown addressed a UN Summit Tuesday attended by 120 world leaders on the subject of carbon emissions. For California, he set a target of 2030 for drastically reduced emissions which will be more ambitious, more difficult to achieve, because technology has to step forward to help as well as a very large political input.
Notably absent from the summit were the president of China and the prime minister of India, whose countries along with the United States are the worst polluters.
Isn’t it interesting how the enormous slate of GOP presidential candidates has been evading mention of climate change? Wonder if they are working behind the scenes to convert the coal-fired industry in their states so they can finally can come out of the closet? But Senator Inhofe of Oklahoma? He’d rather drown on his mountaintop than even mention climate change.
