Oregon’s Clean Fuels Standard: First year Successes >

Originally published April 14th, 2017 by Oregon Environmental Council

Transportation is a leading source of Oregon’s greenhouse gas emissions – cars, trucks & buses are responsible for nearly 40% of our state’s climate pollution. So when it comes to taking responsibility for our part in contributing to climate change, changes to transportation is, naturally, where we can make a big difference.

That’s why the Clean Fuels Standard is so critical. There are three ways to reduce transportation climate pollution: cleaner cars, cleaner fuels, and fewer vehicle miles traveled (walking, biking and using transit more). We need all three for a stable climate and healthy communities.

There is a reason for the faint whiff of fried chicken or french fries while waiting to board the Water Taxi. It’s not from the ship’s galley. It comes from the used cooking oil mixed in the fuel.
