SALEM, Oregon - Two bills climate action bills advanced in the Oregon legislature this past week, passing their respective policy committees in the state Senate and House. While dismal news just keeps pouring out of the nation’s capital on climate change, states are increasingly showing momentum to lead the way. Trump and Pruitt are on a collision course with science and dead set on putting America last in clean energy innovation, giving away public lands and waters to fossil fuel companies and doing the bidding of their dirty energy campaign donors. But states like Oregon can rise to the occasion to keep clean energy momentum alive. The two bills have some differences that will need to be ironed out, but both would limit carbon pollution from the state’s biggest polluters and seek to allow Oregon to join a western carbon market that has been up and running since 2012 in California and has more recently successfully added two Canadian provinces: Quebec and Ontario. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — On Friday, the Oregon environmental officials increased protections for the marbled murrelet, a small seabird from the North Pacific known as the "enigma of the Pacific" because it lives and hunts in the ocean but nests far inland in the high canopy of mossy, old-growth forests. The 4-2 vote by the Oregon Commission on Fish and Wildlife to boost the relative of the puffin from threatened to endangered status under state law was the latest development in a long-running debate about how to manage a secretive species that breeds in dense Pacific rainforests that are also prime logging grounds. State environmental officials must now draft guidelines for ways to maintain bird population numbers, including possibly limiting logging in nesting areas owned, managed or leased by the state. Logging interests reacted with dismay, calling the move premature and a further blow to their industry. Timber harvests, once a powerful economic engine in the rural Pacific Northwest, have declined dramatically since the 1990s because of protections for the marbled murrelet and the spotted owl. ...
