The Oregon Global Warming Commission will meet in Portland on Thursday, Jan. 30. Registration will begin at 12:45 p.m., and the public meeting will be held from 1-4:30 p.m. in the Plaza Conference Room, World Trade Center (121 S.W. Salmon St.) in Portland.

A listen-only call-in line will be available for those who cannot attend the meeting. Call 1-888-204-5984, then use access code 1763644.  Be sure to mute your telephone line during the meeting and do not place the line on hold, as it will cause hold music to play for all participants.

The Commission is expecting that the Governor and the Oregon Legislature will again take up the question of a state carbon cap during the short 2020 session. As a complement to this legislative agenda, the Commission will be considering and making recommendations on policies and actions to sustain and extend the state’s carbon reduction efforts, and on adoption of long-deferred and more systematic adaptation measures. The Commission is devoting its upcoming meeting to consideration of needed climate change adaptation and preparation planning, including anticipation of possible climate migration concerns.

No resolutions are expected to be introduced or voted on at this meeting.

There will be a public comment opportunity beginning at approximately 4 p.m. A final agenda will be available 24 hours before this meeting at www.keeporegoncool.org/meetings.
