The article discusses the efforts taken by people to start community-owned heating plants in Oregon, as climate changes are threatening the emission levels. Carpenter John Sorenson has developed a collective strategy for reducing carbon dioxide emissions. He is building a community-owned heating plant, SunNE, powered by the sun and biomass energy. He estimates that the plant will provide heat to about 500 homes and businesses, and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 1,000 tons each year.
