PAWA (Portland Animal Welfare Advocates) says
The City of Portland and Multnomah County have released the draft 2015 Climate Action Plan for public comment. The draft plan provides a roadmap for the community to achieve an 80 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2050, with an interim goal of a 40 percent reduction by 2030. Portlanders have already cut carbon emissions by 14 percent since 1990, even though our population has grown by 30 percent and we’ve added over 75,000 more jobs during that same time. In per-person terms, that means each Portlander produces 35 percent less carbon than they did in 1990. Wow! More good news is that the investments that have helped cut Portland’s carbon emissions have also improved local quality of life: creating walkable neighborhoods, investing in transit and bike facilities, protecting and restoring natural areas, and making our homes and buildings more efficient and comfortable. The 2015 draft plan builds on Portland’s 20+ year legacy of climate action with ambitious new policies, fresh research on consumption choices and engagement with community leaders serving low-income households and communities of color to help ensure that all Portlanders benefit from the City and County’s climate efforts. Visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/climate to find additional information and download a copy of the draft plan. Comments from the public are accepted through April 10, 2015. And please join us at one of the 2015 Climate Action Plan open house events:

each event is organized by the City of Portland in conjunction with Multnomah county ... officials will be in attendance
