Climate summit live updates: Gov. Brown’s global event kicks off in San Francisco

Gov. Jerry Brown’s three-day environmental summit in San Francisco kicked off on Wednesday, bringing together political leaders from around the world.

The event will test whether California can bring the country to a place Congress and the White House won’t. States, cities and companies will try to chart a course to carry the U.S. and the world toward meeting the goals in the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change, which Trump has disavowed.
