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 2010 the Oregon Global Warming Commission unanimously adopted a roadmap of ideas.
The Global Warming Commission is seeking public comment on recommendations it adopted last fall as an Interim Roadmap to 2020. There are three avenues for offering your responses to the Roadmap, or additional thoughts.
1) A series of public workshops sponsored by local governments 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:
Rogue Valley Council of Governments - May 12, 7 - 9 pm, Medford Public Library,
205 S Central Avenue - View details in the event press release.
