Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world to train an army of activists and influence international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes — in moments both private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
Bill Bradbury, Northwest Power and Conservation Council
Bill Bradbury currently serves as one of two Oregon representatives on the Northwest Power and Conservation Council. Previously, he was Oregon’s secretary of state for nine years, and served in the Oregon House and Senate, including a stint as Senate president. He was the founder of For the Sake of the Salmon in 1995, where he worked with Northwest Native American tribes; federal, state and local governments; and timber, agriculture and fishing interests. He is also a former member of the Oregon Environmental Council.
Bill was one of the first fifty participants in Vice President Al Gore’s 2006 climate change trainings, and subsequently has given more than 400 presentations on climate change in Oregon and beyond.
Bill lives in Bandon with his wife Katy Eymann.
He will speak about the impact climate change has already had on Oregon’s landscape, and discuss new initiatives to reduce the state’s carbon footprint.
