To cut greenhouse gas emissions by 75 percent from 1990 levels by 2050, the Oregon Global Warming Commission needs input from citizens around the state on their priorities. The Commission is asking Oregonians to take an online survey by June 22 to provide feedback on the state’s work to shrink the state’s greenhouse gas footprint. The survey can be taken here.
Feedback from the survey will be used to inform the Commission’s revisions to its “Roadmap to 2020” report, a series of actions designed to help the state achieve its 2020 greenhouse gas reduction goal through initiatives in multiple sectors from land use to energy production.
The Oregon Global Warming Commission is a 25-member commission created in 2007 by the Oregon legislature. It is charged with helping coordinate state and local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and making sure the state meets its climate goals. In 2007, Oregon adopted greenhouse gas reduction goals which include cutting greenhouse gases 10 percent below 1990 levels by 2020; and achieving a 75 percent reduction from 1990 levels by 2050.
