In 2007 Oregon set a 2020 greenhouse gas reduction goal that is almost 30% below today's levels. How do we get there? In October of 2010 the Oregon Global Warming Commission unanimously adopted a roadmap of ideas<http://www.keeporegoncool.org/content/roadmap-2020>, pending a public review process. The Global Warming Commission is seeking public comment on these recommendations it adopted last fall as the Interim Roadmap to 2020. You are encouraged to offer your responses to the Roadmap, or additional thoughts. Please attend one of a series of public workshops being scheduled around Oregon that will ask participants to discuss and critique parts of the Roadmap of particular interest to them, in a collaborative process with others in their community.
The currently scheduled events are listed below:
