the irony of this Oregon Global Warming Commission meeting providing printed agenda and slides to all attendees 🤔

What I'm taking from the first half of this Global Warming Commission meeting is that the most significant thing the state of Oregon could do from a purely land-use perspective is to defer timber harvesting by up to 40%, but if that isn't coupled with reduction in consumption of wood products, then that just increases overall carbon costs by trucking wood into the state from elsewhere. Reducing conversion from forest land to developed land may be important in other places but Oregon land-use laws already restrict that so much there isn't much to gain here.
