Villaraigosa, de León, and Mason: Power Politics
Kevin de Leon, President, California State Senate (D-Los Angeles)
Melanie Mason, Reporter, Los Angeles Times
Antonio Villaraigosa, Former Mayor, Los Angeles (D)
Climate disruption and the California drought have been mocked or marginalized in the national political debate. Are Republicans and Democrats in California similarly divided? Where can they agree on water, energy, agriculture, housing, transit and other issues related to rewiring the economy to run cleaner? Climate impacts such as massive forest fires, rising tides, and severe storms are hitting the state today. California recently extended part of its main climate law, AB 32. Will that get the job done?
A conversation about power and politics at the state and regional level in this wild election year.
