Mayor Sam Adams and Portland's new Climate Action Plan

While Portland may be ahead of the curve in taking on the challenge of climate change, there's still a lot of work to be done.

Portland was one of the first American cities to take climate change seriously. In 2007, Portland was the only large metro area in the U.S. that actually reduced its carbon emissions below 1990 levels. But that doesn't mean we can just rest on our laurels. If this region is to succeed in radically reducing our carbon footprint, there’s a lot more work to be done. This morning Portland Mayor  Sam Adams joins Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein to unveil Portland's new Climate Action Plan.

Sam A$$ Buns KBOO, and where not ridiculing him? I guess he's been pelted enough this century. Granny Viv, where does this fit into our story?

The show was about Portland's Climate Plan. How would blasting Mr. Adams for unrelated issues have relevance to Portland's Climate Action Plan?
