It might not be helping Oregon
Senator Merkley recently introduced a pair of bills to reduce the use of fossil fuels claiming it protects the long-term health and well-being of the American people and their economy from the catastrophic effects of climate chaos, by tackling the risky financial investments.
- The Protecting America’s Economy from the Carbon Bubble Act of 2020 would help safeguard the economy by prohibiting financial companies from making new investments in fossil fuels
- The Sustainable International Financial Institutions Act of 2020 would elevate that priority to the international stage by ensuring that the United States uses its voice and vote in international financial institutions to divest from fossil fuel investments.
- Senator Merkley also introduced legislation to abolish the Electoral
College as part of a package of election reform bills. Since this move
would reduce the influence of Oregon voters, one might ask who he is
- Senator Merkley and Representative Mike Levin (D-CA) introduced in
October the Zero-Emission Vehicles Act of 2020 to address climate
chaos by ending American sales of new gasoline-powered vehicles in 15
years. He went so far as blaming gasoline engines may also increase
mortality among coronavirus patients in a news release.
- Senator Merkley signed his support to the Green New Deal and is taking
his pledge seriously by introducing numerous bills to combat the
climate chaos. Intentionally working against the administration and
accomplish something that will be signed by the President, can we say
we have representation?
