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.
Oregon Global Warming Commission members are noted with an asterisk.
To meet both its Legislative mandate and the desires of Commission members, the Communications and Outreach Committee will carry out its work plan to further the following goals:
Section 11 of House Bill 3543 states that the Commission shall develop an outreach strategy to educate and inform Oregonians on climate change, including the scientific aspects, economic impacts, strategies to reduce emissions, and ways to prepare for and adapt to effects of climate change on people and the environment. Several documents and activities created a foundation for the development of an outreach work plan, including education and outreach recommendations from the 2008 Governor’s Climate Change Integration Group report and the work of the Committee during the past year to define potential short-medium term work products/activities.
