Arnold is back… to talk about green power
Arnold Schwarzenegger will be travelling to Geneva next week to speak about climate change challenges and the need for more green jobs that will essentially cut down on greenhouse emissions.
As the Founding Chair of R20 - Regions for Climate Action, a non-profit environmental group based in the Swiss canton, Arnold will be welcomed by Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization, to talk about and promote future environmental projects.
“R20 is not just another NGO or network of regions, it is much more than that,” Arnold told The Global Journal, a Geneva-based publication, last year. “It is a real coalition of forces which believe that climate change and green economic development can be tackled at the sub-national level.”
It seems that “Schwarzie” is not quitting his green pledge after his governorship. Even though his power as California’s governor had been described by Time magazine as an “illustrative failure” as he was too “flexible [while] nothing worked”.
His most memorable action as political figure was his commitment towards green policies, one of those was converting the gas-guzzling Hummer into a greener vehicle and has since increased interest of low-emission vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show year by year.
The climate and economic conference is set on March 7th, commencing at 6:30pm, at the Uni Dufour building, 24 Rue du General-Dufour.
