California Governor Jerry Brown is in China and has said that climate change could be even more dangerous than fascism during World War II, while speaking at a clean energy forum in Beijing on Monday.
Gov. Jerry Brown: “When there’s a war, people react. During World War II, President Roosevelt on one day said, ‘No more fossil fuel cars! We want tanks! We want airplanes! We want ships!’ He made the transition, because there was a threat. Now, the threat of climate change is not of the same nature as the fascist forces that were threatening the world, but in some ways it may even be more devastating.”
