Stand for Clean Fuels

Oregon has the opportunity to lead on climate.  But we need your help.

Emboldened by federal action to undo climate commitments, big oil is yet again pushing our legislature to rollback one of Oregon’s most innovative and effective climate and clean air protections, the Clean Fuels Standard.

This law is already a big success for Oregon, providing more fuel choices, helping small businesses, and reducing air pollution. In its first year alone, Clean Fuels slashed 775,000 tons of climate pollution, the same as taking 164,000 gas cars off the road for a year.

Oregon must stand up to outside interests and protect our climate programs. The stakes are too high to falter now.

 

It only takes about 30 seconds to let your representative know that you care about preserving Oregon’s climate and clean air law. Will you email them now?

Transportation emissions are not only the largest source of climate pollution in our state, it’s also a major source of air toxics, which harms hearts, lungs and brains.

Clean Fuels is already helping communities disproportionately impacted by polluted air. Low-income housing is often unfairly placed near polluted roadways, contributing to the fact that adults making less than $15,000 a year have an asthma rate nearly twice as high as those earning $50,000 a year.

Will you make sure your legislators know you want Oregon to lead on protecting clean air and public health? Email them now

 Please join OEC in calling on our legislators to protect Oregon’s Clean Fuels Standard.

Statewide leadership on climate action is needed now more than ever before.

Thank you for standing up for a healthier future for Oregon!

Oregon’s Clean Fuels Successes Keep Rolling

Remember that time gas prices spiked drastically because of the Clean Fuels Program? No, neither do we. Those predictions from fossil fuel companies and opponents fell flat. So far, this program has prevented the equivalent of 680,000 tailpipe emissions over the 3.5 years the program has been in effect, at a cost of pennies per gallon. The program takes a holistic, or a “well-to-wheels,” look at ho

When Clean Fuels Win, So Does the Climate, Our Air, Our Oregon

Good news in the environmental world can feel hard to come by these days. That’s why it’s more important than ever that we elevate and celebrate local success stories. SeQuential Biofuels is one of those local stories worth celebrating. An Oregon business that recycles used cooking oil, SeQuential takes waste that would otherwise be thrown out with the nightly trash, and converts it into clean burning biodiesel.

Clean Fuels: Fact vs. Myth

What the Clean Fuels Program does: Guarantees climate pollution reductions from transportation fuels by 10% over 10 years. How it works: Oil importers (all petroleum comes from outside of Oregon) must reduce their carbon footprint by investing in lower carbon fuels. All fuels are judged on their lifecycle climate impact. The cleanest fuels, such as waste grease biodiesel or biogas collected from landfills, are encouraged the most. Higher carbon fuels,

Urgent: Defend Clean Fuels!

In some ways it’s hard to believe, but in another sense it’s totally expected: big oil will stop at nothing to protect their self-interests, and that’s why they’re attacking our right to choose clean fuels and reduce pollution in Oregon. In a cynical political move, the oil industry just proposed three initiatives to repeal the state’s hard-won Clean Fuels Program. We can’t let this happen. The Oregon Clean Fuels Program is the
