Climate and clean energy action in Oregon

Oregon Coast - Kiwanda

Oregonians are problem-solvers for the environment. We value our high quality of life and we work to protect it.

Right now, our quality of life, our economy and the future for our children and grandchildren are all threatened by a destabilizing climate. We cannot risk Oregon’s future by waiting for Congress to act. 

We must build on Oregon’s successes and deepen our commitment to using fewer fossil fuels and less electricity while investing in homegrown resources and technologies that create jobs for Oregonians.
