California's governor, not Trump, meets with China over climate change


A key politician is missing from a new clean energy partnership between the United States and China: President Donald Trump.

The agreement instead involves Chinese President Xi Jinping and California Gov. Jerry Brown, who has vowed to lead America's fight against climate change following Trump's decision to pull the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Brown, along with a dozen U.S. governors and hundreds of mayors and companies, has pledged to slash his state's greenhouse gas emissions and uphold America's commitment to the landmark treaty, even in the absence of federal support.

China, meanwhile, has stood by the Paris agreement and its commitment to peak the country's carbon emissions by 2030 while boosting use of non-fossil fuel-based energy to 20 percent of China's energy consumption. The country has separately said it would close more than 100 coal-fired power plants and invest around $361 billion in clean energy projects by 2020.
