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

    Supercharge our Summer Summit

    The road to winning a national carbon price will be paved by young advocates like myself, when we are trained and connected to a larger movement. I have watched the Oregon Climate team encourage students across the state to voice their opinions and make a compelling case for strong climate policy. Oregon Climate has given me the opportunity to share my story with legislators, and I've seen what a difference it can make.

    This summer, our organization will convene a fresh team of students from campuses across the country--including California, Oregon, Colorado, and Massachusetts--to empower us to succeed in local and national carbon pricing efforts this fall.

    Last year's Summer Fellows, today's climate leaders!

    We need your support to make this Summit a success! Can you donate today?

    • $250 will cover one night of lodging (we’re fine with sleeping on the floor!)
    • $200 will cover transportation costs for all in-state Fellows to attend
    • $100 will cover two home-cooked, full-team meals
    • $50 will cover printing costs for Summit materials  

    As always, any amount will make a difference. We’re pros at making a little go a long way! Please donate here to make the Youth Carbon Pricing Summit possible.

    Thank you so much,
