Dr. Rachel Krause was interviewed by Politifact for the article, "Here's what you need to know about California's climate change deal."
The article explains California Gov. Jerry Brown's statement: "One hundred and ninety-four countries signed the Paris Agreement to control greenhouse gases. Our own voluntary agreement to accomplish the same goal — the Under2 MOU — has 165 signatories, representing a billion people," Brown said. "We can do much on our own and we can join with others – other states and provinces and even countries, to stop the dangerous rise in climate pollution. And make no mistake, we are going to do exactly that."
