A young American lady took a deep breath of fresh air during a break from presence at a full morning of tense panel discussions at an worldwide summit on climate change which may define human future.

Jerry Brown's Global Climate Action Summit had a hard time getting in to the conference Thursday morning.

"Liar, criminal, fool - take your choice", he added when asked what Trump's environmental legacy would be.

Former Vice President Al Gore says a new president can, with 30 days' notice, get the United States back into the global climate agreement that President Trump pulled of a year ago.

Climate change has produced direct negative impact on human life, but not everyone is fully aware of it.

"China's leadership has been truly outstanding and I want to repeat the gratitude that people around the world feel for China and California", Gore said.

"I'm very, very proud of waste management".

Protesters also called on Brown to ban the practice known as fracking, which injects high-pressure liquid into the ground to extract gas.

She shrugged off U.S. President Donald Trump's contentious policy on climate change and global warming, as the U.S. administration decided previous year to pull out of the landmark Paris Agreement that committed all states across the globe to take joint actions on climate challenge.

Data from the satellite would be made available to governments and other bodies.

Leaders from all sectors of society gathered at the event to demonstrate how they are taking ambition to the next level with a wave of fresh and fearless climate action announcements that, if implemented, will generate over 65 million new, low-carbon jobs by 2030.

"Would it be easier if the Federal government and Congress were our partner?"

California Governor Jerry Brown on Friday pledged to launch a satellite that will track and detect the sources of climate pollutants, his state's latest effort to challenge the Trump administration's skepticism about the science of climate change.

The Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC), representing the states of California, Oregon, Washington, the Canadian province of British Columbia and the cities of Los Angeles, Oakland San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver, renewed its commitment to working together against climate change and towards a growing renewable energy economy.

Hite said the summit will help the Paris goal come true, noting that "achieving carbon neutrality the earlier the better", because that process will encourage the public to embrace "clean and renewable energy that is actually taking into consideration social and environmental costs".
