Two big challenges – a major recession and creating a clean energy future – share a common set of solutions with enormous opportunities for Oregon families and communities:
- A cap on global warming pollution to transition to a clean energy economy and protect our children’s legacy.
- Renewable energy to reduce our dependence on dirty coal and foreign oil.
- Energy efficiency for homes and businesses to jumpstart the economy and cut energy bills.
- Smart transportation choices to reduce congestion and gas bills and make healthier communities.
With the right investments and policies, we can put Oregon’s economy back on track. We can create thousands of good jobs while protecting existing industries and vulnerable communities. And we can position Oregon to be a global leader in the transition to a clean energy future.
