2021: YEAR IN REVIEW
As 2021 comes to an end, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on Coltura’s accomplishments this past year. We’re very proud of our work advancing the gasoline phaseout movement and are especially grateful to our supporters who have made this progress possible. This year, we:
- Gained national headlines when Clean Cars 2030 legislation was passed by the Washington State House and Senate. We subsequently responded to Governor Inslee’s veto and launched a campaign urging him to pass the bill by Executive Order.
- Conducted the first nationwide poll and 13 state polls on Clean Cars 2030 policy, showing that, by a 55% – 35% margin, U.S. voters support a policy calling for all new vehicles to be electric by 2030.
- Published groundbreaking research on Gasoline Superusers, laying the foundation for efforts to reform EV incentive policy at the state and federal levels.
- Presented at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Electric Vehicles Workshop.
- Were featured in a story on NPR’s All Things Considered stating that our ‘Beyond Gasoline’ mission has evolved from a “fringe idea” to one influencing “the halls of power.”
- Generated nearly 50,000 views of our 2018 music video, “Gasoline, Gasoline (The World’s Aflame),” after Fox Business and other conservative media outlets used Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm’s cameo in it to attack her support for clean energy policies.
- Published op-eds on phasing out gasoline in The Hill, Washington Monthly, and CleanTechnica.
