Carbon pollution is a direct assault on our farming, fishing, and forestry economies, and we must act now to fight climate change. Jeff understands Congress needs to wake up. Climate change is real, and is deeply disastrous for both our local economy and our world. - Jeff Merkley
Today President Trump turned the clock back, weakened U.S. leadership, and sent us on a path that will exacerbate climate change. That's bad for our country and our planet. The executive order withdrawing the Clean Power Plan is contrary to the mission of the Environmental Protection Agency, and it severely undermines critical efforts to protect clean air and water. - Suzanne Bonamici
If you go in and look at what type of drills and saws and other things people are using now, they're battery-driven. Why? Because they're so convenient. You don't have to be dragging a cord around wherever you go... suddenly you don't have to fool around with gasoline or trying to get the thing to start. Well, the same is true of electric cars. And that's why Tesla is doing so well. And so what we really need to be doing is finding solutions to these problems that people are enthusiastic about...The challenge is to find things that people want to do as opposed to saying to people, 'This is how you are going to do it.' - Cliff Bentz , quoted by Fox News
If Donald Trump engages in an anti-science, highly partisan witch hunt to drive out hard working analysts and scientists who understand the risks of climate change, I will fight and do everything I can to protect their rights and voices. - Earl Blumenauer
The science is clear that global warming is happening and that it is caused by human activity. It is long past time for Congress to get serious about climate change, to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and other fossil fuels, and to create jobs by creating a new energy economy. - Peter DeFazio
I also believe a strong investment in renewable energy is a key component of reversing global climate change.The key to curbing the effects of global warming is to significantly reduce our carbon emissions. I support significant increases in fuel efficiency standards and strong reduction requirements for carbon emissions. - Kurt Schrader
