Demonstrating once again that the Calcoms have more in common with the Chicoms than with their own country.
California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new climate change agreement between the State of California and the People’s Republic of China on Tuesday.
The gesture continued Brown’s efforts to expand ties with China, as well as his diplomatic campaign to push for more action on climate change. It came in the immediate aftermath of President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords.
A statement by Gov. Brown’s office described the new agreement as follows:
Specifically, the agreement expands cooperation on the advancement of low-carbon, renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies such as zero-emission vehicles, energy storage, grid modernization and low-carbon urban development. Under the agreement, California and China will also deepen their partnership and coordination on greenhouse gas emission and air pollution reduction programs, including emissions trading systems and carbon capture.
The Associated Press reports, however, that the agreement does not bind either China or California to specific greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets.
