Title: “Addressing Climate Change at the Ballot: Challenges to Copying the Marriage Equality Movement”Janet Lorenzen

This talk draws on 58 interviews conducted between May 2015 and August 2017 with Oregon state: legislators, legislative staff members, environmental leaders, and professional lobbyists. Pro-environmental lobbyists were particularly keen to point out that marriage equality had succeeded in Oregon as a ballot measure. And they kept asking, why can’t we do that with a policy to address climate change? This talk discusses the possibilities and challenges of making Cap and Trade (aka the Clean Energy Jobs Bill, SB1070) into a ballot measure in Oregon in 2018.

Students are welcome and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
