- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Oregon has the ability to sustain itself coal-free, and we need to if we are going to confront climate change and send a signal to national and international policy makers that they need to do the same.
I already purchase the green energy option from PGE. I know that there will be additional costs for ratepayers like myself to absorb as we increase our renewable portfolio, but with careful planning and good policy the increase will become part of my monthly budget, just like my current green option.
We need to confront climate change on all fronts, and a cap on carbon (and coal-based energy both from in and out of state) is a great first step.
