Climate Change in Washington
We have released an updated version of the state’s first-ever rule that caps and reduces carbon pollution. Carbon pollution from fossil fuels has reached rampant levels and is trapping heat around the planet, which is changing our climate.
The Clean Air Rule would cap and reduce carbon pollution to help slow climate change and limit the effects and damage to our state's coastal communities, agricultural industries, and drinking water supplies. Learn more about rule >
