Jerry Brown attacks Trump on climate, says he does ‘not represent the people of the United States’

California Gov. Jerry Brown attacked the Trump administration’s “behavior” at the United Nations climate summit in Poland, arguing it did “not represent the people of the United States.”

“The United States, I’m sorry to say, does not represent the people of the United States,” Brown said in a video address Thursday to U.N. delegates gathered in Katowice for the summit.

“California, Washington, New York, Vermont and many, many other states representing tens of millions of people believe in the science of climate change, believe and demand we reduce our carbon emissions,” Brown said, listing off the areas with some of the most leftist citizens in the country.

U.S. joined with Saudi Arabia, Russia and Kuwait in blocking the conference from “welcoming” a U.N. report on limiting future global to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 — a report called for in the 2015 Paris Agreement.

President Trump promised to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris accord in 2020.

This is an area where Brown is one of Trump’s biggest critics.

“We recognize the science undergirding the knowledge we have today on climate change. If we’re going to stay below 1.5 degrees Centigrade from the industrial period we have to take action now,” Brown said.

“The actions and the behavior of the leaders of the United States and Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and Russia and other countries are not acceptable,” Brown added. “This is a suicide mission upon which you have embarked. Pull back.”

The U.N. report Brown refers to estimates $122 trillion would be needed to fund the new green energy infrastructure needed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

In a radio interview this week, Brown said that the Democratic Party has gone “further out than I think the majority of people want.” Brown was talking mostly about his own state’s Democrats, far leftists, which now completely dominate the state government.

For example, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez convinced many Democratic colleagues to sign on to her economy-wrecking Green New Deal (GND) agenda. That resolution would establish a goal of having the country shift to 100% renewable energy in a decade. It would decarbonize all industries. And it promises to upgrade “every residential and industrial build for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”
