We know that climate change is influenced by human activities. As we release greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into the air, our atmosphere warms. With rising temperatures come changes in weather and climate across the globe – from heat waves and flooding to drought and wildfires.
The energy sector can be a large contributor
to greenhouse gas emissions – but it can also be part of the solution. The Oregon Department of Energy is committed to leading our state to a cleaner energy future, and we have some resources to help!
