The state government of Oregon passed a bill to eliminate the use of coal for electricity by 2035. Oil, gas, and coal prices are down, but even the price incentive isn’t enough to stop the retreat from fossil fuels. Evidently, at least in one state, people are reacting to the climate change by curtailing the use of old energy sources and planning on the increased usage of renewable energies. On its own, news about one state banning coal may not be much, but it may be the beginning of a larger scale retreat from fossil fuels and an acceptance of renewables. It has to start somewhere.
