Way to go, California!

Brown announced the summit via a video message at the Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg, Germany.

Trump had said in May that the US would withdraw from the 2015 Paris pact in which almost 200 nations pledged to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Climate, particularly in the wake of Trump's announcement that the US would exit the Paris deal, was expected to be at the top of the meeting's agenda. "California will resist because his effort is misguided".

"I think [Brown's] message was really important".

But the governor's latest action is arguably his most politically aggressive yet, sure to draw criticism as well as praise.

"It's really good to hear that not all Americans feel the way Trump does about climate change".

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

In fact, it's two weeks ahead of schedule , meaning the Freemont factory will build the first production EV this Friday. He further said that their mistake with the X was too much complexity at the beginning.

Brown, along with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), formed the U.S. Climate Alliance, a coalition of states committed to the goals laid out in the Paris accord.

"If the President is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up", Brown said in a statement at the time.

"A summit like that takes on even more importance because", said Figueres, "it has become even more crucial for the United States to see evidence of the fact that the USA economy continues to decarbonize". It will feature big-name music acts like Coldplay and Shakira, as well as leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Argentina's President Mauricio Macri. Newsweek reported Thursday that Trump was not invited. Brown urged the world's scientists, government leaders, entrepreneurs, musicians, mathematicians, professors and students to "come join us" at the California summit.

Asked how the summit would be paid for and if public money would be used, a governor's spokesman responded that the funding details had not been determined.

According to a press release from the governor's office, California will convene representatives from subnational governments, businesses, investors and civil society to demonstrate the groundswell of innovative, ambitious climate action from leaders around the world; highlight the economic and environmental transition already underway; and spur deeper commitment from all parties, including national governments.

"Since the decision of the U.S.to quit the Paris climate agreement, we are more determined than ever to make it successful", she said last week.
