West Coast states and BC to link climate policies

Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — The governors of Western U.S. states and a Canadian province will announce a partnership to collectively combat climate change and promote clean energy. Governors of California, Oregon, Washington and the premier of British Columbia on Monday will announce the partnership at an event in San Francisco. Few specifics were available. Gov. Jerry Brown’s office said the states and Canada will formally align climate policies to cut greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and industrial sources. The deal stems from the Pacific Coast Collaborative, a group meant to organize climate change and clean energy policies. It links together economies with a combined GDP of $2.8 trillion, the fifth largest in the world, according to Brown’s office. The news conference is scheduled for 4 p.m.
