Last few days to help make a Healthy Climate in a Coal Free Oregon!

Now is a critical time for the climate movement in Oregon. Right now, legislators in Salem are considering setting a limit on carbon pollution, make our energy portfolio coal free, create electric car charging networks, create jobs in renewable energy, and community solar in our state.

Healthy Climate Bill: Take action today!

There are already limits on emissions in our laws, but there is no way to enforce them. The Healthy Climate bill will hold big polluters accountable for the cost of what they are dumping into our air and water. Up to this point, we are paying the costs, in the form of missed work days and medical bills from lung disease, severe allergies and asthma attacks. We pay for record-breaking wildfires and droughts that hurt family farmers and raise food prices.

Please take our survey! Help us keep you better informed!

  Oregon Rural Action would like your input on the way we communicate with our members and the public. Please take a few minutes to tell us how you receive information from Oregon Rural Action and what you think we could do better. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback!

Across America and Canada, oil train cars carrying crude oil have been exploding. In 2015, there has been an average of one accident every other month due to an increase in the amount of crude oil from shales across the Midwest and West being hydraulically-fracked and transported.

Rail lines carrying oil trains pass through La Grande, Baker City, Pendleton, Ontario and others along I-84. We have an opportunity to act to keep our communities safe. Contact Oregon Rural Action to find out about the hazards in your backyard!
