"The 2% Solution" Webcast
Wednesday, January 30, 2008 - 5:00pm to Wednesday, January 30, 2008 - 6:00pm
Portland State University is excited to announce a viewing of the Focus the Nation webcast entitled "The 2% Solution" on Wednesday, January 30th, from 5:00-6:00pm in Neuberger Hall, Room 450.

Produced with the support of the National Wildlife federation, and hosted on Earth Day Network TV, the webcast will be broadcast live from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. To hold global warming to the low end of 3-4 degrees F will require cuts in global warming pollution in the developed countries by more than 80% below current levels by 2050. Put another way, we need to cut roughly 2% of current emission levels a year for the next forty years. The webcast will revolve around the question: Can we as a nation get on to this path, and cut global warming pollution 2% a year for the next decade? If so, what would it take?
