dc.description.abstractThis Article examines certain selected regional responses to global warming and sets forth some standards by which the effectiveness of such responses might be measured. Part I of the Article begins by examining the causes of global warming and its likely devastating consequences for humanity and all living things. Part II defines and analyzes the nature of regional responses to global warming. In so doing, the Article describes a number of existing regional responses and concludes with a discussion of how the success of such responses might be evaluated. Parts III, IV, and V of the Article describe how regional approaches to the climate crisis might prevent additional global warming, achieve adaptation to global warming, and protect humanity from global warming consequences. The use of the term “adaptation” in Part IV is a term of art that has arisen within the context of responses to global warming. Thus, rather than referring to how humanity or any individual species might adapt to global warming, adaptation in this Article refers to how humanity might act to preserve natural services, such as clean drinking water, clean air, and biodiversity. Part VI of the Article takes a preliminary look at Oregon’s governmental responses to global warming and suggests initial predictions as to how effective such responses might be. In general, the conclusions reached in Part VI regarding the effectiveness of Oregon’s global warming response are not reassuring.en
