San Francisco Hosts Global Climate Summit
Just days after Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill requiring California’s energy sources to be completely clean and renewable by 2045, thousands of people gathered in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit. The three-day event, featuring politicians from around the world, CEOs from companies like Starbucks and Salesforce, and celebrities like Harrison Ford, was launched to show that cities, states, regions and industries are stepping up to meet the carbon-cutting targets of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement despite the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back environmental protections.
