In more climate change news, California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a new law to shift California to 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2045.

Gov. Jerry Brown: “There’s no understating the importance of this measure. SB 100 is sending a message to California and to the world that we’re going to meet the Paris Agreement, and we’re going to continue down that path to transition our economy to zero emission, zero carbon emission, and to have the resiliency and the sustainability that science tells us we must achieve.”

That was California Governor Jerry Brown speaking Monday ahead of the Global Climate Action Summit here in San Francisco. Democracy Now! will be broadcasting live from San Francisco all week.
