In 2014, the city of Eugene, Oregon passed a resolution with the primary goals of reducing fossil fuel consumption and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

More than six years later, the city has been unable to meet those goals, and grassroots organizers in Eugene have come together as the Fossil Free Eugene coalition to urge the city to follow through and be a leader in divesting from fossil fuels.

KBOO's Nat Moon spoke with Dylan Plummer, Grassroots Organizer for the conservation organization, Cascadia Wildlands, and Timothy Morris, Board President of the Springfield Eugene Tenant Association.
