Carbon dioxide is a major contributor to global climate change. Among the likely impacts for Oregon are less mountain snow pack and less water available in summer, higher sea levels, and threats to forests, crops, and fish and wildlife habitat. Coal and natural gas are the main sources of carbon dioxide from power generation.
Nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide are air pollutants that affect human health, plants, fish and wildlife. Nitrogen oxides contribute to smog. Coal is the main source of these pollutants from power generation. Natural gas plants produce nitrogen oxides.
Nuclear fuel wastes contain the most radioactive and long-lived waste formed during operation of nuclear power plants. These wastes are stored at nuclear power reactor sites. The United States has no permanent disposal site for these wastes.
Some hydropower dams contribute to the decline of salmon and other fish and wildlife populations.
