Bill would raise $1.3 billion when it took effect in the 2021-
That is $1300 to the average Oregon household. Do you want to spend $1300 on this do nothing plan (while China builds hundreds of new coal plants!)?
But the long-
The Legislative revenue office expects that to translate to about to about 22 cents a gallon increase at the pump in 2021, when the policy kicks in, increasing to 78 cents a gallon 10 years later and $3 a gallon by 2050.
BUT YOU have to buy an electric car!
The assumption is that that the policy will cause Oregonians to gradually, but completely
convert to electric passenger vehicles by 2050. Otherwise gasoline they will increase
gasoline prices much more -
At 500 gallons per year that $0.22/gal becomes $219 / average husehols with 1.97 vehicles
Likewise, policy makers are predicting that the bill’s impact on natural gas prices
will result in wholesale increases in energy efficiency. Industry groups project
a 12 percent rate increase for residential consumers by 2021 increasing to 40 percent
by 2035. https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/2019/06/oregons-
By 2040, with the number of allowances being auctioned far lower, the rate impact would grow to 53 percent ($567 annually) for residential customers,
The good news here is that the plan’s main sponsor, Michael Dembrow, claims the plan has been changed. We don’t know that number, but NWNG made a proposal that will only cost you about $375/year.
Using Oregon’s Generation mix and the stated $23.59 per ton, the average home electric bill will go up by $121 per year
Natural gas increase $375/ household
Electric bill increase $121/ household
TOTAL…………. $715 / year increased energy bills.
Data sources are here
Dembrow wants you to spend $10,000-
What they won’t talk about is that these prices are FAR BELOW what the climate advocates want: CarbonPrice.org suggests a price of about $230/MT (instead of Oregon’s $23.59).
That would raise the above estimates by a factor of about 9.75 -
If we cut our emissions to ZERO, it would have no noticeable effect on world temperature because Oregon only emits about 0.1% of total emission*, China & India are building hundreds of new coal plants, and other governments are producing more fossil fuels than promised. And Oregon is already the 4th lowest CO2 producing state per capita;
Here is a leading Oregon climate expert admitting that the plan will have “imperceptible” effect.

Dembrow must expect that China and India will let their people remain in abject poverty to follow Oregon’s climate leadership.
Governments are planning to produce about 50% more fossil fuels by 2030 than would be consistent with limiting warming to 2°C and 120% more than would be consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C
Oregon is already the 4th LOWEST state in emissions per capita! (11th lowest in total emissions) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_carbon_dioxide_emissions (sort by state)
* Oregon 0.7% of USA CO2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_carbon_dioxide_emissions
USA 13.77% of world: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_carbon_dioxide_emissions
By multiplying these two numbers we get Oregon’s contribution to world CO2 emission: 0.7% of 13.77% = 0.1%

As Oregon develops a framework for a state-
The current version of House Bill 2020 does neither. In fact, exempting Oregon’s pulp and paper sector from the proposed requirements is the only way that Oregon can ensure lower global carbon emissions and protect high paying local jobs.
The Democrats put in an emergency clauses to keep us from gathering signatures to refer the legislation to voters.
Oregon’s Global Warming Commission is headed by a person that profits from promoting the climate scare!
"The Commission was created by the 2007 Oregon Legislature."
"Angus Duncan (Chair), President of the Bonneville Environmental Foundation"
The Bonneville Environmental Foundation sells a full suite of environmental products—RECs, Carbon Offsets and Water Restoration Certificates®—offer the most efficient and affordable method to balance your business footprint and deliver immediate environmental benefits."
“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally
a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive
poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued.
“Because we really think of it as a how-
Several other organizations say the same thing: http://www.debunkingclimate.com/green-
Global warming is a TRILLION DOLLAR Industry full of giant multilateral corporations that sell wind & solar, big banks trading carbon credits, Colleges and Universities getting funding to study climate, all the way down to individual scientists who will lose their jobs if the climate issue went away.

Oregon cost of CO2 is set at $26/ton. https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/2019/02/nw-
Conversion to metric ton 1 US ton = 0.907185 metric ton: 26 x 0.907185 = $23.59/metric ton
Each car emission is 4.71 metric tons CO2:
Number of cars/household = 1.97:
Average home’s electricity emits 5.734 metric tons:
Average home’s natural gas emits 2.06 metric tons
World CO2 emissions;
Oregon CO2 emissions (from graph at):
Cost of Natural gas:
$230/MT from Carbonprice.org
“According to a study (Nordhaus), the price required to stay below 2.5 °C warming
starts at roughly $230 per metric ton of CO2 in 2020, increasing over time.” http://www.carbonpricedc.org/2018/05/17/greatest-
For Oregon electricity:
According to the Oregon DOE website, our state uses a mix of coal at 31.89% and natural
gas at 16.58%. The rest of the mix is considered carbon neutral such as hydro, wind,
Apportion each percentage of the mix:
For 1MWh, the coal CO2 portion would be .3189MWh x 1001 kg/Mwh = 319 kg CO2
For 1MWh, the NG CO2 portion would be .1658MWh x 429 kg/Mwh = 71 kg CO2
A typical household in Oregon uses about 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per month. (Page 14 of
At 1000 KWh/mo (12 Mwh/yr):
Coal = 12 x 319 kg = 3.8MT
NG = 12 x 71kg = .85MT
.85+3.8 = 4.7 x $23.59 = $111
