The Oregon Senate, pretty much along party lines, has approved a bill that requires Oregon to get itself completely free of coal-fired power by 2030. The bill also requires that half of Oregon’s power must come from renewable sources. The bill now goes to Governor Brown for her signature.

The vote was pretty much along party lines – Republicans adamantly opposing the bill claiming that the move would increase everyone’s electric bills and that Oregon’s gesture at curbing fossil fuel sources for power won’t make any difference in the grand scheme of things. Those in support of the bill say exactly the opposite – that coal plants are closing at a rapid rate all over the the U.S. for good reasons and that Oregon is correctly reading the green energy tea leaves, deciding to be a leader in ending fossil fuel’s disastrous loading of green house gases into the atmosphere, precipitating changes in the Earth’s overall climate.
