Oil Check Washington

Washington Climate Collaborative is yet another oil front group

The same day Governor Jay Inslee rolled out his plan to meet Washington's carbon reduction limits, a new group popped up on the radar. Despite their name "Washington Climate Collaborative", this isn't a group excited about supporting the Governor's plan. Instead it's more of the same. When you look at the supporters list, despite the lovely background of apples a few names jump out: Western State Petroleum Association for one. The Northwest Gas Association for another. When you look at their plan, despite the pro-environmental values they espouse, you realize that there's no there there. No clear plan for meeting Washington's climate limits. Guess it's time for WSPA to update the slide deck – one more Astroturf group is launched.
