Oregon PSR Reports on Indoor Air Pollution March 22, 2024

Oregon PSR has released a report on the pollution caused by burning fossil fuels for heating and water heating in Oregon homes and buildings. The report, coauthored with  four other organizations — Verde, Beyond Toxics, Oregon Sierra Club and RMI — found that combustion from these sources generates as much lung-damaging nitrogen oxide (NOx) pollution as the state’s cement manufacturing and power generation combined. The report also found that communities of color across the state are disproportionately impacted by air pollution from homes and buildings. These important findings echo those in an October 2023 report coauthored by the national PSR office with Sierra Club and WeAct for Environmental Justice.
