The Future of The Climate Movement

The security of our food, our water and the natural world is under threat by the most profitable industry in history. It's time to hold Big Oil and Big Coal accountable for their recklessness. Just like you and I pay to put the trash on the curb, polluters should pay for the right to dump waste into the air. A price on carbon will encourage conservation and level the playing field for clean energy. Oregonians can win when funds from pollution are returned to us in regular checks!
The Pollution Payback will protect our environment, stimulate the economy and provide a model to other states and the nation.

Polluting our air should not be free! Join our movement today.

Make no mistake, the fossil fuel industry will resist us every step of the way. We can only win a carbon dividend for the people of Oregon if you and I step up and make a difference.

We invite you: Join our community, and power the movement!

"The world thirsts for one nation, one state, to place a flat fee across all polluting carbon fuels. Oregon Climate just might lead the world toward that goal."

- James Hansen, Former Head of NASA Goddard Institute

'(Tuesday) was about giving students a chance to engage with key stakeholders in Oregon who are crafting our response to the clean power plan,' he said. 'Students rarely have a chance to interact deeply with the people who are actually making the decisions- the people who are translating our international vision to combat climate change into actionable policy.'


    "Oregon Climate is making sustained involvement in this issue possible for millennials. While annual education-oriented events like these are helpful, real change only occurs through sustained pressure on the legislative body from constituents."
