Schwarzenegger to Address U.N. on Climate Change

Former governor to speak Tuesday

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will address the United Nations this week about climate change, his aides said Monday.

The former governor, who concluded his run in January and has returned to show business, will speak Tuesday during the Private Sector Forum 2011, where his audience is expected to include heads of state and government, chief executives of global businesses, civil society leaders, and heads of U.N. agencies.

He will encourage international leaders to "address issues related to climate change, explore the benefits of utilizing clean energy, and enlist the private sector on building better nations through sustainable investments," according to a release.

Schwarzenegger tried to make climate change a focus of his terms as governor.
