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
