Organizers hope to secure bold commitments from them to do even more, thus showing that decarbonization and economic growth go hand-in-hand and galvanizing a global movement for climate action that leaves no one behind. This new international meeting is the brainchild of California’s 79-year-old outgoing governor Jerry Brown, one of the country’s great crusaders for cutting carbon emissions despite lack of federal interest in solving the climate crisis. According to Brown, subnational actors are a critical part of the climate solution and can help push the world’s leaders to go further, faster. These leaders will join citizens from around the world to showcase examples of major climate action initiatives already taking place without the aid of the federal government. They hope to inspire deeper commitments from each other and from national governments in support of the Paris Agreement.

Brownhastappedthreeleaders as summit co-chairs: Patricia Espinosa, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change; Anand Mahindra, chairman of the Mahindra Group, an Indian conglomerate that recently committed to meet its Paris climate agreement commitments; and Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City and founder/CEO of Bloomberg LP who is a vigorous campaigner for and generous donor to environmental causes. These three are primarily responsible for shaping the event’s purpose, format and overall curation and leveraging their voices and network for the cause. Why now? According to Brown, 2018 is a turning point: Countries and all of us must step up the commitments that were made in Paris and do more. “The momentum we generate this year must lead to a climate turning point by 2020 in order to prevent the worst effects of climate change,” says Brown. “It must be the beginning of a new phase of action and ambition on climate change.” Participants are expected to go beyond just sharing what they have achieved to date and announce stepped-up commitments to usher in what organizers are hoping will be “a new era of decarbonization and prosperity.” The culmination of the meeting will be a call to action to nations to step up their ambition under the Paris Agreement and cut emissions on a science-based trajectory that limits warming to well below two degrees Celsius. “The Summit seeks to change the climate conversation, broaden and depoliticize the issue, and activate everyone to call for change to preserve our future,” Brown concludes. The governor’s actions in steering California to be one of the world’s most fuel efficient large economies is even more inspiring than his words. Given that Brown won’t be able to run again for governor due to term limits, the Summit may represent the last hurrah of his storied political career.

Attorney General Becerra Reminds Victims Of Western Union Wire Fraud Scams To Apply For Refunds ***Deadline To Apply For Refunds Extended To May 31, 2018*** California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today reminded Californians who were the victims of wire fraud via Western Union to submit a claim in order to be considered for a refund payment. The original deadline to submit a claim was February 12, 2018 and has now been extended to May 31, 2018. “For over 13 years, Western Union failed to prevent scammers from using its wire transferring services to take advantage of consumers. That is unacceptable,” said Attorney General Becerra. “Today, in light of the new, extended application deadline, we are reminding all Californians who were tricked into wiring money via Western Union to apply for a refund. Hardworking families who were defrauded by Western Union’s services deserve justice.” Last year, Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced a multistate settlement with Western Union. The settlement resolved an investigation that focused on complaints by consumers who were tricked into using Western Union’s wire transfer service to send money to third parties involved in schemes to defraud consumers. The states had alleged that, despite many warnings that its system was being used for frauds, Western Union failed to take corrective action to protect consumers. The multistate settlement includes a permanent injunction requiring Western Union to establish an anti- fraud program that will prevent scam artists from using Western Union’s wire transfer services to victimize consumers. In a related, but separate agreement with the Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Justice, Western Union agreed to pay $586 million in refunds to victims of wire fraud. California consumers who made a wire transfer through Western Union between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017 may be eligible for more than $65 million in refunds. It is from this pool of federal settlement money that prior victims can apply for refunds. Attorney General Becerra has also released a guide for consumers on the different types of scams and advice on how to remain vigilant against wire fraud. Attorney General Becerra strongly encourages consumers to report scams to the Office of the Attorney General's Public Inquiry Unit by calling (800) 952-5225 or by submitting a complaint at oag.ca.gov/report. Information about refund eligibility and the process for filing a claim is available at www.westernunionremission.com.
