Cali Gov Jerry Brown announces Global Climate Summit
10 Julio, 2017, 01:27
Brown, 79, encouraged the world to "get it together" and join him at the inaugural Climate Action Summit in September 2018 in San Francisco and rebuke Trump's environmental policies.
Climate change has become one of the biggest issues at stake during the Group of 20 summit, after President Donald Trump last month chose to pull the USA out of the 2015 Paris deal that promised to keep global warming "well below" 2 degrees Celsius.
"It's up to you and it's up to me and tens of millions of other people to get it together to roll back the forces of carbonization and join together to combat the existential threat of climate change", Brown told festival participants.
Still, outside experts and climate advocates say any broad show of support for Paris and Germany's climate action plan will be a reminder that Trump is increasingly on his own when it comes to climate change.
Last month, Trump referred to the Paris Agreement as nonbinding and said the USA would not adhere to it, while leaving open the possibility of negotiating the creation of a new climate change deal that the president said should better hew to America's interests.
Winfried Kretschmann, Minister-President, Baden-Württemberg, said: "Baden-Württemberg stands ready to support an ambitious approach on climate action and I hope that the heads of state make a strong statement on the importance of global climate action".
The G20 nations provide four times more public financing to fossil fuels than to renewable energy, a report has revealed ahead of their summit in Hamburg where German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said climate change will be at the heart of the agenda.
Trade will also be on the program for a bilateral meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Friday morning, before the formal G20 sessions start.
Whether Brown and his American cohorts, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, will ultimately be able to take sufficient action to curb global warming is uncertain, but they are already succeeding in undercutting the authority of the White House to set the US agenda on climate.
There has always been speculation that fossil fuel-dependent countries in the G-20 might hesitate to forcefully back the Paris agreement, and that nations like Turkey and Saudi Arabia might refuse to sign onto a separate action plan that details steps countries should take to reduce their emissions. "Jerry Brown of California on Thursday reinforced his reputation as America's de facto leader on climate change". "It's not going to change climate change policy in America, and it's not going to change Donald Trump's mind".
"Therefore, after this step taken by the United States, our position steers a course towards not passing this from the parliament", he said. The annual event has drawn huge crowds and featured remarks from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Norweigan Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri, along with performances from Coldplay, Shakira, Pharrell Williams and others.
Brown, who is two years away from retirement, has taken up the mantle of opposition leader on climate change issues in the early months of Trump's administration.
Along with Tillerson's affirmation that the two leaders shared " a clear positive chemistry ", it's hard not to recall George W. Russia, and Iran, have backed keeping Assad in power. "Fake News said 17 intel agencies when actually 4 (had to apologize)".
