Global Warming Commission
Free—public meeting

Coastal wetlands can play an important role in sequestering carbon.

Oregon’s Global Warming Commission meets online from 1-5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 15.  The commission will discuss the forthcoming “Transformative Integrated Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Plan,” the state’s blueprint for meeting the 2035 and 2050 goals for reduction of emissions.  The plan will consider actions across a wide variety of sectors of society that could reduce emissions or help to sequester carbon.

The Commission will also hear a presentation on the state’s electricity transmission infrastructure, highlighting current constraints and needed upgrades to facilitate the decarbonization of Oregon’s power sector.  Finally, the Commission will reflect on the 2021 Legislative Session in preparation for the upcoming 2022 Legislative Session.

The public can make comments to the Commission about global warming issues.  There are two ways to do so.  Write to [email protected], or use the online contact form
