Lane County Climate Action Plan Updates
At their February meeting, the Lane County Climate Advisory Committee proposed recommending that County Commissioners convene with all energy utilities that serve Lane County to have a discussion about what it will take to get them to 100% renewable energy and 0% emissions. They also proposed having school districts integrate energy audits of schools, homes, churches etc. into their curriculum.
This diverse committee includes many perspectives, and the county appears to appreciate the committee’s depth of experience. The question is, will the county ignore their recommendations, like the City of Eugene did with their “advisory” bodies? That’s up to us! Their next meeting is March 26th at 12:30pm. You can listen or make comments.
