Brown promotes California climate efforts at UN

Posted: Updated:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is joining world leaders at the United Nations Climate Summit in New York to discuss California's attempts to slow climate change.

Brown will appear on panels discussing California's law that puts a monetary value on carbon emissions and its agreements with other governments to reduce emissions.

Brown has aggressively enforced the landmark global warming law signed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006. It aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, partly by forcing companies to pay for their carbon emissions.

The Democratic governor faces criticism this year for adding to the cost of gasoline for California drivers as part of the law. It's expected to raise gas prices by 13 cents to 20 cents a gallon by 2020, but could exceed 50 cents.
