Climate Change Fuels a Run For Governor

Dr. Julian Bell is running in the Democrat primary for Governor against Kate Brown. This from Eugene Weekly (note: link is currently broken):

Bell says Brown has had a “bully pulpit” since taking office after former governor John Kitzhaber stepped down, but she hasn’t advanced environmental and climate change issues. Avoiding controversy for a year and half, he says, is not something to be proud of when talking about accomplishments as governor.

I don't understand Bell's argument here. Brown and Legislative Democrats passed a "clean fuels" bill even after they got a lot of pushback and were forced to kill a gas tax hike. Seems to me Brown is doing exactly what Bell says she should be doing.
