Oregonians want freedom from fossil fuels

As we near July 4th, it’s a perfect time to declare our independence from Big Oil! We have a real opportunity to declare independence from dirty oil by showing support for the Clean Fuels Program here in Oregon.

Take Action: declare your independence from Big Oil – support Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program!

Right now, Oregonians don't have much choice when it comes to fueling up their vehicles. And every year, oil industry lobbyists ply their trade in Oregon and across the country, working to keep it that way. They know that when we lack transportation choices, it means runaway profits for oil companies.

Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program gives clean, homegrown fuels a fair shot in the marketplace, creating jobs and cleaning our air. Communities across Oregon are ready to reap the benefits of clean fuels, but we need to get Big Oil out of the way. That’s where you come in.

Show your support for clean fuels in Oregon.

By reducing the carbon content of our transportation fuels by 10% over 10 years, the Clean Fuels Program provides a great step forward for curbing climate pollution and leveling the playing field for local producers of alternatives to fossil fuels. Unfortunately, if the Oregon legislature does not act next year, this program comes to an end before it has a chance to be fully implemented.

Businesses, organizations and people like you are gearing up for 2015, calling on the Oregon legislature to re-authorize the Clean Fuels Program and move Oregon forward.
 
Let’s really honor Independence Day this year: pledge your support for replacing dirty oil with homegrown clean fuels. Let’s take control of our economy, our politics, and our health.
 
We can do better than fossil fuels!
