California signs its own “climate accord” with China

Written by  Leslie Eastman

Governor Brown’s contribution to the #Resist movement.

Now the California’s Russia-connected secession movement is stalled, China is stepping in to deepen the rift between the Golden State and the rest of the Union.

After President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord, Governor Jerry Brown suffered a massive attack of hyperbole during a PBS interview and deemed the action “insane.”

Then Brown went to China and  signed a climate change accord with the nation (for those of you interested in how constitutional this act is, here is a great discussion of State Treaties).

The agreement, though nonbinding, aims to expand cooperation between China and California on renewable energy, zero-emission vehicles and low-carbon urban development, Brown’s office said. It will establish a joint working group of Chinese and Californian officials to come up with ways to work together, and to invest in programs that would cut carbon emissions.

Brown signed the pact with Wan Gang, China’s minister of science and technology, before meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“California is the leading economic state in America and we are also the pioneering state on clean technology, cap and trade, electric vehicles and batteries, but we can’t do it alone,” Brown said Tuesday.

If Brown thinks that the Chinese government will negotiate in good faith, he truly is insane.

So he wants to bankrupt California? How does the rest of California feel about that? I feel very bad for those Californians who don't want to be taken down the Liberal suicide path. Knowing what we know about the Paris Accord, President Trump did the right thing pulling us out. I'm not sure how anyone could think it was a good idea "we pay billions to China and India while they get to go on polluting for another 13 years but we have to shut all our things down". Please, someone, anyone tell me how that is good for anyone, especially the USA???

California is already bankrupt. Between outright debt its unfunded debt is over a trillion dollars. No reason for this bozo to stop digging, no one is going to stop him.

He is an idiot! Always has been, nothing changes there, I avoid the state like the plague. Most of the intelligent ones have fled the state.

Ah, the lunatic left is at it again. Any group that elects Moonbeam for any position is too foolish to even deal with.

Are there really that many crazy & uniformed voters in California that they will stand by and continue to allow these morons to further destroy their state? Time for a recall of the gov & any others with these crazy ideas & actions.

Obviously there are, Tom. It seems that the left has finally managed to destroy our education system to the point of not many still having the skill of intellectual reasoning & logical thinking.

Stupid is as stupid does. Maybe they should break off the USA and float their ass over to China, it would serve them right!

Just because Brown thinks he is above the laws of the USA does not mean we in Calif want to do things like this Brown has stepped way over his head and I hope Trump can put a stop to this guy from implementing this not everyone in Calif voted for him to be in office. The way I see it he is trying to kill this state or he is trying to look like he is the go to guy for the United States I hope this back fires on him.

California has deep pockets. All those stars can pay because it will cost. That is assuming it is fact which not much is these days.

Mr. Brown from Calif. is taking a trip to China, on climate change - having said that, Mr. Brown, might want to think of this - terminate your statehood, join and become a province of China. Use the money of China, and live by the rules of the Country of China - THATS ALL of the RULES of CHINA. Part of your statements sound so much like Al. Gore, he said, just the other day, that, in the city of Miami, fish were swimming in the streets - that fact, NEVER made it into the NEWS, but well that's the same guy who said that the Republicans did not count the votes of Black voters, so if you notice.....those who lie about the climate, will lie about ANYTHING.......that's a shame, a damm shame, but these are the people who so many of you have voted for to run this country! Scary!

Do we have any idea of what President Trump did for “We the People”?
Stopping this legislation means trillions of dollars will not pass through the hand of Al Gore, Obama, Valerie Jarrett and all the world Bankers who would receive a percentage of all carbon taxes which would have been traded through the carbon exchanges that they patented and own. http://humanevents.com/2007/10/03/the-money-and-connections-behind-al-gores-carbon-crusade/. See who had invested Billions to make/earn Trillions if “Cap and Trade” became law. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2086494/posts and even with the sale of CCX, 16% of CCX brought a $90 million investment profit http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/11/09/collapse-chicago-climate-exchange-means-strategy-shift-global-warming-curbs.html.
Originally, Al Gore, Obama, Maurice Strong, and whoever in Congress owned [bribed with] stock in CCX stood to make $Trillions if they can pass an enforceable Cap and Trade legislation. But the Republican control prohibited that. Barack Obama was a board member on the Joyce Foundation, which funded the formation of the CCX in 2001. Valerie Jarrett, Obama's top adviser remains on the JoyceFoundation board.

I had the misfortune to live in Kalifornia for five years, and though there are some good people there, the vast majority are soft headed misguided idiots. Any people who would elect a moron like Brown not once, but repeatedly show that they do not deserve the vote.

Just so long as the people of california pay the price. NOT social security recipients (who paid into the system) across demoine, or little rock, or anywhere else. Because this is a SCAM for california to steal their money through 'grants' etc..
Which is exactly what the 'climate' bullshitt is about. The agenda actually stands in the way of true advances, by sidestepping real advancements in favor of SCAMS..
Oddly at the same time hollering 'it's not working well, we need more of other people's money to steal".. And steal it they do.. Their fake companies like solyndra get it and withing a week roll up and out leaving their FAKE products behind (only for the taxpayer to pay to clean up the toxic mess).. That one was $560 Million, they disappeared in a matter of days.. WHERE IS THIS MONEY?

Last time I checked, an individual state did not have the authority to sign any sort of an agreement with a foreign nation.

Article I, Section 10 says:
"Section 10

1: No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

2: No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it's inspection Laws: and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Controul of the Congress.

3: No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay."

So, it sure looks to me that Brown has violated the Constitution - not that anybody in DC will do anything about it.
