California Senators Pavley & Allen and NRDC Executive Director Lehner
California Senators Fran Pavley and Ben Allen, and Natural Resources Defense Council executive director Peter Lehner are the keynote speakers for the inaugural Rethink Methane Symposium in Sacramento.
The Rethink Methane Symposium takes place at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel June 9-10. Attendees will learn how renewable methane from biological and synthetic sources can help California strengthen its economy and pave a sustainable energy future – and help integrate solar power and wind power into the conventional energy infrastructure (F&F, April 15).
Fran Pavley is a well-known advocate for climate change issues, having co-authored AB 32, California’s Global Warming Solutions ACT of 2006. She also led the charge for landmark climate change legislation (AB 1493) in 2008. Pavley chairs the Select Committee on Climate Change and Assembly Bill 32 Implementation.
Ben Allen is a freshman senator who represents the much of west Los Angeles. “Since getting to Sacramento he has hit the ground running with important environmental and energy legislation including groundbreaking Senate Bill 687, which establishes a renewable gas standard for the state of California’s gas utilities,” says Rethink Methane organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.
Peter Lehner, GNA says, has been executive director at NRDC since 2006. “Arguably the nation’s most influential and effective environmental advocacy organization, NRDC is a national leader in the effort to reduce exposure to smog causing chemicals, toxic air contaminants and climate-changing gases.”
The Rethink Methane Symposium has been endorsed by the Coalition for Clean Air.
