On Sunday Governor Jerry Brown traveled to Vladivostok, Russia for a six-day conference of international government and business leaders at the Eastern Economic Forum, to emphasize climate change. As reported by the Los Angeles Times, Gov. Brown maintains the Forum “isn’t just an occasion to promote investment, it’s an opportunity to strengthen our commitment to decarbonizing the economy.”
Present at the Forum will be business leaders and politicians representing Russia, India, and South Korea. Gov. Brown will give opening remarks to the forum with a talk entitled “The Russia-China-Japan-U.S Quadrangle: Are There Opportunities for Cooperation?,” with the intent of including climate change in the general discussion.
