Climate Change in Washington
Earlier this year, we proposed the draft Clean Air Rule, which would cap and reduce carbon pollution in Washington. The rule would help slow climate change and limit the projected effects on our state's coastal communities, agricultural industries, and drinking water supplies.
Since releasing the proposed rule, we have sought feedback that would help inform and shape the draft rule. We met with numerous groups and stakeholders and received a lot of helpful and constructive ideas.
We've withdrawn the proposed rule to make updates and intend to release a new proposed rule and supporting documents for public review in the spring. Learn more about rule >
A new report from the Climate Impacts Group, State of Knowledge: Climate Change in Puget Sound, provides a comprehensive synthesis of relevant research on the likely effects of climate change on the Puget Sound region. Read the report >
