Washington, California, Oregon, B.C. sign clean-energy pact

METRO

SAN FRANCISCO, Cali. – Governor Jay Inslee, the governors of Oregon and California, and the premier of British Columbia aim to attack climate change with an accord that aligns clean-energy policies.

The non-binding agreement was signed yesterday by Inslee, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, California Governor Jerry Brown, and B.C. Premier Christy Clark.

Inslee says the goal is to make sure that the Earth’s atmosphere “is no longer allowed to be an unlimited dump for carbon polluters.”

The accord calls for all three West Coast states and B.C. to “account for the costs of carbon pollution” and pursue carbon-reduction strategies.
