100% Clean Energy for All: In support of Oregon HB 2021

Every bill with real solutions to climate change is important right now. Among the most hopeful for this Legislative Session in Oregon is HB 2021, sponsored by Southern Oregon Representative, Pam Marsh.

HB 2021 A is moving through committees and support of the bill with comments and testimony couldn’t be more important. The bill accelerates electrification of the Oregon power grid, and offers jobs for Oregonians in communities across the state in a transition focused on community-based projects, affordability, and disaster resilience.

One key opportunity for southwestern and coastal Oregon is the excitement around Offshore Wind energy. Bill Bradbury, a long time advocate of offshore wind and former Oregon State Senator and Oregon Secretary of State joined the meeting to offer testimony in support of the bill.

You and I Have Solutions to Our Climate Crisis

Drawdown the CO2 Emissions: Reverse Global Warming by 2050

We don’t have to feel the pain of seeing temperatures rise, ice and snow packs melt, or migrants having to flee coastal or equatorial regions because of climate damage. The big news that each of us needs to know is that comprehensive, real solutions–ones that we can implement locally–already exist or are on the current drawing board. If we take part in implementing these changes in our communities, it is possible to “roll back global warming by 2050.”

Join fellow Oregonians and others for a five-session online course that presents 100 current, specific, substantive solutions. Two hundred scientists and researchers from 22 countries identify and model answers that each of us can put into practice into our own local places of living and community.
