“California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced that many prominent leaders from around the world will participate in the “Governors’ Global Summit 3: Building the Green Economy,” to be held Nov. 15 and 16 at the University of California, Davis…. “

And the punch line?

He Duanqi of Yunnan, China; Director General Gao Guangsheng of the Climate Division of the National Development Reform Commission in China; Ambassador Richard Jones, deputy director of the International Energy Agency in Paris; Pavan Sukhdev, head of the Green Economy Initiative, United Nations Environment Programme; Gov. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan of Delta State, Nigeria; and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson…. “

Oh well, if they get bored with Arnies “Climate Change” epic, perhaps they can show a few other disaster movies over lunch! “The Day The Earth Stood Still” Is my fav.
