An Open Letter from Scientists and Experts Supporting a Clean Energy Transition in Oregon
The challenges posed by fossil fuel-induced climate change are as daunting and demanding as any we’ve ever faced. That’s why these 70 Oregon-based scientists and experts are urging the state’s lawmakers to take strong climate action this year.
The Clean Energy Jobs bill (HB 2020) will overcome those challenges. It will reduce global warming pollution across the state, invest in clean energy, and protect our communities from the impacts of climate change.
Dear Governor Brown and Oregon state legislators:
As Oregon scientists, researchers, and economists, we are deeply concerned that climate change compromises the quality of life of all Oregonians and threatens our state’s—and planet’s—future. We need your leadership now more than ever to reduce the risks of a dangerously warming climate.
