California Gov. Jerry Brown has a message for the world — and President Trump — that climate change in coming and humanity has to do something about it.
Speaking in Stuttgart, Germany, on Wednesday, Brown blasted “denialists” who continue to reject the scientific consensus on global warming.
“We have to wake up — wake up Europe, wake up America, wake up the whole world to realize we have a common destiny and we are all human beings on this one planet,” said Brown in his address to the state parliament of Baden-Wurttemberg. “This is daunting but it’s also an opportunity to pull people together.”
Later on Wednesday, Brown traveled to Brussels to speak to members of the European Parliament, where he took on several members who were skeptical of climate change.
“The truth is that any kind of catalog of the scientific community indicates that climate change is real, it’s having impacts,” said Brown. “Even the Trump administration couldn’t, with a straight face, curb a report that underscores the very opposite of what you denialists have expressed here.”
Governor Brown was named Special Advisor for States and Regions in June by Fiji’s Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, the president of the United Nations climate change conference.
