How you can cut climate pollution. This week.

In the Puget Sound region, over 40% of climate pollution comes from our transportation sector.  No surprise, the biggest contributors are gasoline and diesel. And, while we have been making progress in cutting pollution from our grid, transportation pollution has only increased over the last decade.  
 
The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency has proposed a Clean Fuel Standard that would help tackle transportation pollution – reducing the carbon intensity of transportation fuels 25% by 2030. By adding your voice for a strong rule, it will be the best in the nation.
 
Come and let the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency know it’s time to adopt a clean fuel standard! 

The Agency is hosting a public hearing on the clean fuel standard and the Agency’s Board of Directors need to hear from all of us that we support them taking this action—as we might expect, they're already hearing from the oil industry opposing this policy.

Where: Washington State Convention Center, Room 2AB 
705 Pike Street, Seattle WA 98101 
When: Thursday, December 19 
Rally: 11:00AM - 11:30AM 
First Session: 12:30PM - 4:30PM 
Second Session: 5:00PM - 8:00PM 
 
Yes!  I want to attend the hearing!

clean fuel standard will help tackle climate pollution in our region, while providing more transportation options and healthier air. That is why the American Lung Association and the Washington Academy of Family Physicians support it.
 
This Clean Fuel Standard takes on climate pollution here in the Puget Sound region, and sets an example for what can be done at the state level. Together, we can help make the future of the Puget Sound region safe, healthy, and resilient.
