Members of the Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation and the Metro Policy Advisory Committee as well as dozens of other local leaders and interested people gathered at the Oregon Convention Center on Friday, April 2, to kick off a renewed regional effort to address the issue of climate change, and specifically greenhouse gas emissions. Dr. Moomaw addressed both the scientific evidence of climate change as well as actions that can be taken at the local level to drastically reduce the rate of climate change.
Participants in the workshop ended the day by taking a survey prioritizing possible actions to address climate change locally. Results from those surveys will be made available on Metro's web site and presented to MPAC and JPACT in May.
