California Gov. Jerry Brown keeps pressing climate change crusade

Jun 2nd, 2013 | By | Category: Featured Story

Gov. Jerry Brown warned scientists and policymakers Thursday that they are losing the war on climate change and urged them to become advocates for the planet.

“We’ve got a big challenge. It’s daunting,” Brown said. “This is not just about science, this is about activism.”

A team of climate change experts gave Brown a new, 20-page call to action during a conference at NASA Ames Research Center sponsored by the nonprofit group Sustainable Silicon Valley.

The report, signed by more than 500 scientists, is aimed at providing lawmakers with specific action items. These include ensuring adequate water supplies to major population centers, restoring wetlands, protecting forests, and developing new materials that will curb the release of toxic substances into the environment.
