We should have the choice of cleaner fuels to stop climate change from getting worse.
Cleaner fuel reduces air pollution that’s responsible for respiratory diseases like asthma and lung cancer.
We need a clean fuel standard in Washington to reduce carbon emissions responsible for drier forests and more intense fires.
Greedy oil companies want to keep a monopoly over your gas tank to protect their profits. HB 1091 will hold them accountable for cleaning up their act.
Climate Change Is Far More Expensive Than A Penny
We all want to keep climate change from accelerating. Cleaner transportation fuels are an excellent place to start. Greenhouse gas emissions from cars, trucks, cargo ships, and airplanes are responsible for the largest share of climate pollution in Washington.
Nobody is in favor of making climate change worse, but we don’t have the option of lower-carbon gas and diesel. That’s because multinational oil companies want to keep their profitable monopoly over your gas tank. They’ve shown time and time again they don’t care about climate change.
A clean fuel standard, like our neighbors in Oregon, California, and British Columbia have already adopted, is giving drivers the choice to reduce their carbon footprint by up to 80% every time they fill their tank. We should insist our legislature do likewise and pass HB 1091.
