Rep and climate activist Earl to exit politics, leaving immense legacy

Longtime Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., known for his colorful bicycle lapel pins that reflect his decades of climate and transportation advocacy, said he will not seek reelection in 2024. “I firmly believe that when we focus on things that bring people together rather than divide them, that is when we make real progress,” Blumenauer, who was first elected to Congress during the Clinton administration, said in a statement Monday night. “It was a difficult decision to not run for re-election. Particularly after the amazing successes of the last several years. I’m proud of the progress we’ve made.” Blumenauer, 75, has represented his Portland-based district since 1996. “From enacting the largest climate and infrastructure investments in American history, helping 100,000 restaurants survive the COVID-19 crisis, expanding health care coverage for millions and making cannabis reform a mainstream position in American politics,” he said, “[o]ur accomplishments prove Congress can still deliver for the American people.” https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/oregon-rep-blumenauer-retiring-nearly-three-decades-congress-rcna122965?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma&taid=65411a056443c700012a401f&utm_campaign=trueanthem&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter

      Blumenauer's retirement is a loss, but his legacy will live on in the work of the climate movement and in the policies that he helped to pass.

                        I tend to believe it's from politics to climate activism.

                          It is important for politicians to prioritize climate action, and Blumenauer's work serves as a reminder of the urgent need for bold action to address the climate crisis.
