Muckraker: Grist on Politics

On Tuesday and Wednesday, David and I will be in Los Angeles attending the Governors’ Global Climate Summit, hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The summit is bringing together governors (as the name suggests) and international leaders to talk about their programs to address climate change and energy concerns, in hopes of forging partnerships going forward. The meeting is also intended to generate momentum and a framework for international climate negotiations in Poland next month, and in Copenhagen in December 2009.

In addition to Schwarzenegger, the event is hosted by Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R), Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle (D), Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), and Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D). They’ll be joined by business leaders, environmentalists, and politicians from Brazil, China, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Poland, and the European Union.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

We’ll have more over the next couple of days.
