Get the Scoop on Oregon's Big 2018 Climate Priority
This year global carbon dioxide emissions rose two percent after remaining flat for the last three years. Meanwhile, we are experiencing some of the worst climate and extreme weather events to date, including record-breaking wildfires out here in the West.
With President Trump's move to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement—the global effort to tackle global warming—state leadership on climate change is more important than ever.
Tune in to a webinar with the Union of Concerned Scientists to hear how Oregon can lead on climate in the upcoming legislative session.
Webinar: Get the Scoop on Oregon's Big 2018 Climate Priority
Date: Tuesday, December 12
Time: 12:00–1:00 p.m.
After years in the making, Oregon legislators will consider a bill in the 2018 legislative session that caps global warming emissions, puts a price on that pollution, and uses the money to fund clean energy jobs in the state.
This webinar will answer the questions:
• What is carbon pricing and how will it make a difference in Oregon?
• What are the basic mechanics of this Clean Energy Jobs Bill?
• How will this bill help those most impacted by climate change, like Oregon's rural and low-income communities, and communities of color?
• How can you have an impact as a Science Network member?
We want to equip scientists and experts like you with the facts and answers to your questions to make sure you can be the strongest advocate possible. Please register for the webinar today.
Together, we can make sure Oregon takes this step to pass equitable, innovative, and meaningful legislation to reduce global warming emissions and set Oregonians up with a just, clean energy economy.
