Experts estimate that Petro's plan to stop oil exploration in Colombia could result in a bill around $4.3 billion.
This plan includes the establishment of an anti-oil force in the region and around the world that moves the economy away from fossil fuels. I would invite Gabriel Boric to Chile and LuizInacio Lula de Silva to join me.
