Jerry Brown sees a way to bring together the world's largest carbon emitter and a U.S. state that's leading the way in energy standards: climate change. Brown and Xie Zhenhua, China's top climate official, announced a new university partnership focused on climate research and policy on Monday as part of the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York.
