Protect Oregon's Clean Energy Future
In Oregon, we are moving quickly on plans to cut carbon pollution, the dangerous stuff that fuels climate change.
But Oregon's inspiring clean energy program is at risk of being polluted by Big Oil. The oil industry is trying to kill the program that has phased in a mix of cleaner fuels for our vehicles while reducing the amount of dirty fuels that pollute our air, water and land.
Protect the law that protects Oregon -- tell your state representative to stand firm against Big Oil's attacks on clean fuels.
The Oregon State Senate voted last month to extend the Clean Fuels Program -- but, true to form, the oil industry is investing big money to lobby the House to block extension of the program.
The Clean Fuels Program is already working by phasing in a mix of cleaner fuels for our cars and trucks since 2009.
And hundreds of innovative companies are now producing cleaner fuels, including sustainable, advanced biofuels, clean electricity and biogas. We're creating clean energy jobs, right here in Oregon, and saving money on fuel at the same time.
The Clean Fuels Program will continue to spur investments in clean energy, cut our oil consumption and introduce more fuel competition to the state. But we can't stop now.
Tell your Oregon representative to stand up for Oregon's Clean Fuels Program.
We cannot afford the oil industry's monopoly over our transportation fuels, economy and health. Don't let profitable polluters take our state backwards -- help protect Oregon's clean energy future.
