NTREG Monthly Meeting
Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017.
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 noon
Location: Midway Hills Christian Church, 11001 Midway Road, Dallas, Texas. (Map)
Our meetings are held in the Fellowship Hall, which is accessible through the church main entry, or from doors in the rear.
Topic: "Carbon Pricing - Carbon Fee and Dividend"
The concept of carbon pricing as a market-based approach to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
About Our Presentation:
In a polarized political environment where voluntary emissions limits and government regulations are disfavored approaches to managing climate change, another strategy is gaining ground. Leaders in Congress and the private sector are embracing the concept of "carbon pricing" as a market-based approach to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate the emergence of the clean energy economy. A price on CO2 would send a signal to industry, investors, and consumers that would drive the market to adopt clean and efficient energy technologies. Citizens' Climate Lobby, a bipartisan grassroots organization, is urging Congress to pass its Carbon Fee & Dividend proposal, pricing carbon while also protecting consumers and U.S. manufacturers.
Presenter: Ann Drumm, a Dallas volunteer for Citizens' Climate Lobby
About Our Presenter
Ann leads the Citizens' Climate Lobby's North Texas endorser and public speaking teams, building support for its market-based approach to address climate change. Ann's environmental volunteer experience includes leadership in the Sierra Club and Texas Business for Clean Air. A Dallas native, Ann earned undergraduate degrees in business and history and a law degree from SMU. After 27 years living in Preston Hollow, she and her husband David recently relocated to Uptown to enjoy the walkable urban lifestyle.
About Citizens' Climate Lobby
Citizens' Climate Lobby is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.
Their respectful, non-partisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values, rather than partisan divides, and empowering supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, they work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.
