Oregon Environmental Council works directly with elected officials, community members, and grassroots activists across the state to take real and immediate action to curb the biggest driver of climate change: pollution from fossil fuels. By working today for lasting solutions, OEC helps protect the state against the costly and dangerous effects of extreme weather and air pollution while helping to build a more resilient, equitable clean energy economy for us all. Everything in our lives depends on the climate, from the food we eat to the water that supports our health, homes, and industries. But our climate is changing and the impacts are already being seen across Oregon: disastrous wildfires costing billions in damages; extreme heat that disproportionately harms our workers and other frontline communities; warming rivers and oceans that threaten our fish and Indigenous ways of life; and unprecedented drought that impacts Oregon’s water supply, agriculture, and natural resource economy. OEC is acting now to reduce climate pollution and protect the Oregon we love for future generations by supporting the transition to cleaner energy, cleaner fuels, and climate-smart transportation options. The result will be cleaner air, a stronger economy, family-supporting jobs, and a healthier, more resilient Oregon for all.
