Arnold Schwarzenegger is making a rare political appearance in Sacramento.

Three years after leaving office, the former governor is visiting the state capital on Monday to promote California's fight against climate change.

The Republican is attending a symposium on California's landmark 2006 global-warming law, where he'll share the stage with current Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.

Schwarzenegger will then unveil his official governor's portrait at the Capitol. The artist has yet to be revealed.

The painting eventually will be hung on the third floor of the building next to his recalled predecessor, Gray Davis.
