Washington State’s economy, health and climate are under attack by the oil industry. Our transportation system is entirely reliant on gasoline and diesel, leaving consumers vulnerable to price spikes. Tailpipe pollution is our largest source of carbon pollution and a leading cause of respiratory disease and asthma attacks. Oil companies poison our politics, stifle clean energy innovation and lock us into a future of climate disruption.
We can free ourselves of this oily grip. Let’s take our future back.
A Clean Fuel Standard offers a solution by creating a fair market for low-carbon fuels. Replacing petroleum with locally-produced clean fuels will strengthen our local economy, improve the health of our children and free ourselves of the oil monopoly. With your help, Washington State can overcome the oil lobbyists and implement a Clean Fuel Standard right now. California, Oregon and British Columbia are already benefiting from clean fuels—Washington shouldn’t miss out. Join us in the campaign for better jobs, healthier air and a livable future.
