Climate Action Plan, Portland

Sunday, June 21, 2009
There will be several town hall meetings hosted at a variety of places around Portland in the coming weeks to discuss the Climate Action Plan 2009 to reduce local carbon emissions in the city of Portland by 80% by 2050. This draft for this 40-year plan will be discussed, and I'm sure will lead to interesting discussions. You can read the Draft Climate Action Plan 2009 here, and find a list of town hall meeting locations here.

Also, if you haven't heard of 350.org (the safe upper limit for Co2 in our atmosphere), their mission is to simply raise a sense of urgency and possibility for our planet about the climate crisis. On October 24th, the hope is the planet will stand together to call for a fair climate treaty. The treaty currently up for discussion amongst world leaders in Copenhagen, Denmark this December doesn't pass the 350 test. Check out this video 350.org has put together in hopes of sparking a grassroots movement. Share with anyone you can--we have very little time to turn this thing around. It's exciting that movements like this one might actually spark the action it takes to make it happen!
