Senator Henry Stern

Senator, 27th District
“[The Climate Center] has emerged as a force this year in our public policy discussions. We know that this has been a long time coming, but this campaign for a Climate-Safe California is not only crucial but it is scalable. The goal for a 2030 near term net negative emissions target is not just something we should be striving for in California, but should be pushing the administration [in Washington] to embrace as well.” – Senator Henry Stern, California State Senator
