Donald Trump is not a firm believer of climate change, which is a big problem, especially after he decided to drop the U.S. from the Paris climate accord. Thankfully, there are people like California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who decided to defy Trump while speaking to a crowd of over 12,000 environmental activists in Hamburg.
According to the LA Times, Brow noted Trump’s plans to withdraw from the Paris climate accord and assured that his state will take the lead in fighting climate change.
“It’s hard to grasp the mortal danger that climate change represents,” Brown explained. “I believe that California, New York, France and Germany and the other countries — we have to get our act together, strengthen our commitment and bring as many nations along as we can.”
Brown decided to take on Trump, urging people of the world to get together and fight climate change.
“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 stated. “Yes, I know President Trump is trying to get out of the Paris agreement, but he doesn’t speak for the rest of America. We in California and in states all across America believe it’s time to act, it’s time to join together and that’s why at this climate action summit we’re going to get it done.”
