I have asthma now and never did before. I'd like to see action now. Why wait to save future generations.

Because global warming (polarizing of weather patterns) is real.

Pay a little now or a "lot" later. Plus it has to get started now to have a better chance ofhelping decrease global warming.

For 30 years all I have heard is "We only have 5 years to act on climate change before it's too late". I am done with this scam!

this is a round about way to raise money.there is no alternative from carbon based fuels.. the infrastructure for electricity will not handle all the power needed.

Because this state is already taxing everyone to the extent that no one can afford to live here.

Every night I turn on the news to see the state proposing another way to tax, or raise the taxes paid by the citizens. At what point does paying taxes become theft by government decree?

When the Pot growers keep pumping CO2 into their plants to grow them bigger and faster don't expect me to pay high prices so they can have their munchies.

Carbon emissions is not the problem in our environment and no amount of this foolishness will make any difference.

Oregon is already one of the most "green" states in the U.S. and we pay for it.

No, it's just another tax with no applied results. Meant to go to the Congress coffers for mismanagement.

How exactly is that going to cut CO2 emissions? People still need to eat and go to work. Do we not remember 2008 when gas was $5 a gallon and a recession hit?

This is a joke right? How stupid do you think we are? Do you forget that tree's breathe co2, and expel oxygen, or did common core remove that truth from its curriculum too?

No. Imposing expensive policies on the basis of a currently fashion theory that a few decades hence will seem as silly as is now the case with eugenics, bleeding etc., is absurd.

This makes the social justice warriors and those thinking they are saving the world feel warm and fuzzy. Just another tax. Smoke and mirrors from the left.

Penalize the companies, not consumers. Hold them accountable for their practices, and get them to change how they operate.

Oregon taxpayers are in trouble. Brown and liberal legislators are looking to raise taxes over 2 Billion dollars, increase big government, and add bad business regulations.

Gabe, my dude, you have to stop screaming like a mad man about Biden and Democrats. You do nothing for your cause. It's so disappointing to see a grown man behave the way you do.
