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 (OGWC) 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<http://www.keeporegoncool.org/sites/default/files/Integrated_OGWC_Interim_Roadmap_to_2020_Oct29_11-19Additions.pdf>.
The OGWC wants the public conversation around climate change to involve as many different Oregonians with as wide a variety of perspectives as possible, given that we share an interest in protecting our state's livability and economic vitality. You are encouraged to offer your responses to the Roadmap, or additional thoughts. Please attend one of the public workshops 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.
In addition, a reminder to share your perspective on how the state can best prepare to meet the challenges of climate change by taking a survey at: http://conversation.fuseinsight.com/topic/start/OGWC_Roadmap_3_3_2011/intro?SID=ODOE. Please respond by May 31!
