CLEAN ENERGY AND JOBS BILL
We Oregonians along with the rest of the world are under siege by the fossil fuel industry which is putting in peril the entire earth’s ecosystem through their willful blindness to the damage they are causing by denying climate disruption and their insistence to continue to pollute our atmosphere for their profit motives. This is unconscionable and egregious and amounts to an act of terror against humanity as well as all living things.
We do not have to and must not sit helpless any longer. States and countries around the world are taking action by introducing legislation that goes to reduce greenhouse emissions from from offending industries. It has been demonstrated by them that this action is profitable to their citizenry not only by creating clean air but by the uptick of the economies as well as the creation of new jobs in the renewable energy sector
We here in Oregon have two such pending clean energy and jobs bills one in the House and the other in the Senate. Both are moving along in this short legislative session. We citizens must demand action on the part of our legislators to get this passed now. The longer we wait the bigger the storms, fires and droughts will get, as well as the continued growth of climate related respiratory illness.
Please call your representative and senator today and insist they champion the clean energy and jobs bill.
