On Monday, Governor Jerry Brown signed a regional pact with Oregon, Washington state, and British Columbia to fight global warming. The pact, which is non-binding, aims to put a price on carbon dioxide emissions, encourages use of alternative fuels, and calls for building a bullet train from Canada to California. We discuss the agreement.

Host: Michael Krasny
