On November 19, 2008, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joined 26 leaders from around the world to sign a historic agreement on Climate Change.

The leaders came from six countries, including the biggest rainforest nations of Indonesia and Brazil. Their declaration acknowledges the threats of global warming on natural resources and economic prosperity, and calls on states and provinces to build and strengthen cooperative efforts to implement strategies that can immediately reduce greenhouse gas emissions in advance of the next global agreement on climate change.

Indonesia and Brazil are home to what is described as the "Lungs of Our Mother Earth” - the largest, most pristine forests in the world. These forests serve as nature’s air purifiers --  absorbing carbon dioxide waste from our atmosphere, while also cooling our planet from the effects of global warming.
