Why Climate Action Now?

Energy use is costly to your pocketbook and your environment. Burning fossil fuels for energy generates greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, which lead to global warming and climate change.

The governments of Jefferson County and Port Townsend, Washington, set a goal of reducing countywide greenhouse gas emissions to levels 80% lower than 1990 levels by 2050. Making this a reality requires individual commitment. We believe that the citizens of Jefferson County CAN rise to this challenge!

Transportation is responsible for the majority of energy-related GHG emissions in Jefferson County(Adobe PDF 359 KB). Transportation fuel use (on-road vehicles) accounts for 39% of GHG emissions. Business energy use (industrial and commercial) accounts for 38% of GHG emissions. Home energy use (heating, lighting and electrical) accounts for 23% of GHG emissions.
