Speaker   ANGUS DUNCAN
 Chair, Oregon Global Warming Commission

TUESDAY, OCTOBER  17
1:30 p.m. -  3 p.m.
OSWEGO HERITAGE HOUSE

When Angus Duncan was asked what he meant by black swan events, he said come and find out. He has served as President and CEO of the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) since its formation in 1998. The Foundation is a non-profit business venture that generates revenues from regional and national sales of renewable energy and carbon-offsetting Green Tags.

Prior to BEF, Angus served on the Northwest Power Planning Council From 1989 to 1995. Angus previously worked on energy development in the private sector and as Director of Energy Policy for the US Department of Transportation. In 2004 Angus chaired the Drafting Committee that wrote Oregon’s Climate Change Strategy for Governor Kulongoski. In 2006 Angus chaired the Governor’s Drafting Committee designing an Oregon load-based carbon emissions cap and trade mechanism.

Angus currently serves on Oregon's Transportation and Land Use Committee, the Communication and Outreach Committee, the Energy, Utilities, Stationary Sources Committee and the Science and Technology Committee.

The League of Women Voters of Clackamas County invites the public to come to this free program and learn what Oregon is doing to reduce greenhouse emissions.
