Episode 7 – Oregon’s Climate Protection Program

#Oregon is reducing #GHGs in a huge step – @OregonDEQ’s #ClimateProtection Program. The details are on the latest episode of #GreenState!

As of Jan. 1, 2022, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has a new Climate Protection Program! The goals of the program are:

  • to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels by 50% by 2035 and 90% by 2050
  • to contain costs
  • to enhance public welfare for Oregon communities, particularly environmental justice communities, including, communities of color, tribal, low-income and rural communities.

Scientists agree these reductions are required to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Lauren and Dylan talk with DEQ’s Director; Climate Protection Program staff member, Nicole Singh; and Oregon Business for Climate’s Tim Miller.
