Randall Bluffstone,director of the Institute for Economics and the Environment at Portland State, and Professor of Economics, presents important efforts in forests worldwide to combat climate change and improve the earth’s ecological systems. Growth in future CO2 emissions are expected mostly from poor countries outside formal obligations and agreements, so real reductions in a global carbon footprint are at risk. Much depends upon a UN program called Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD). Get up to speed on the promises of REDD and learn about global climate.

The Beaverton City Library hosts a public screening of Pandora’s Promise, a film about nuclear energy by former anti-nuclear activists, in the Auditorium. Environmentalists make their case for why nuclear power (which gives off no CO2 emissions) is the best option for transitioning our power grid, to accommodate the growing energy demands of the planet without increasing fossil fuel consumption. Oregon and other Western states have agreed to work on a demonstration project aiming to study modular reactors produced by a Corvallis company. A Q&A will follow with Adam Bless, of the Oregon Public Utility Commission. Bless has a degree in nuclear engineering and has over 27 years of experience working in nuclear power as both inspector and engineer. This event is the third in a lineup of programs hosted by the Beaverton City Library this spring exploring options for a sustainable future. For more information, contact Jill Adams, librarian, at 503-350-3613 or jadams@BeavertonOregon.gov.
