Senate President Emeritus Kevin de León represented California and the USC Schwarzenegger Institute at the 3rd Climate Conference of the Americas in Rosario, Argentina. Senator de León was invited to speak about California’s climate leadership and specifically its renewable energy goals.
Senator de León shared about SB 100, California’s 100% carbon-free-by-2045 goal and the Golden State’s green-tech boom. In an interview with La Opinión, de León said it is time to share climate policy best practices throughout Latin America.
In addition to his participation in the Conference, Senator de León had the opportunity to meet with Governor Miguel Lifschitz of the province of Santa Fe and teach an Argentinian high school about climate change policies.
Senator de León plans to continue his climate leadership in California and beyond.
