Governor Brown Announces Conference on Climate Risks and California’s Future


11-3-2011

Will Tackle the Impacts of the Changing Climate on our Economy and Environment


SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. and environmental, business and public health and safety leaders will come together on December 15 in San Francisco at “The Governor’s Conference on Extreme Climate Risks and California’s Future.”

The Governor’s conference will focus on the risks of unpredictable and extreme weather events caused by climate change and how our communities can prepare and adapt.

The Governor’s conference builds on the findings of a United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report outlining the link between global warming, extreme weather events and their economic impact. The IPPC report will be released later this month.

The Governor will be joined by Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Rajendra Pachauri and other leaders at the Conference, which will be held at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. More information will be made available as event details are finalized.
