Carbon Pricing: A Game-Changing Solution for Climate Change

TF&F Monthly Virtual Gathering:

June 30, 2020 at 7 pm via Zoom

Speakers: Betty Carteret and Steve Rothboeck, co-leads for Citizens’ Climate Lobby Skagit Chapter

With the world’s attention focused on the COVID-19 global pandemic, acting on climate change has taken a back seat. However, climate change will continue as a threat multiplier to this health crisis as record heat, an active hurricane season, flooding, and increased disease vectors land in the U.S. in the coming months.

Fortunately, game-changing legislation has been introduced that can put us on a path to rapidly reduce carbon emissions at the same time as stimulating the economy, creating new employment opportunities, and improving health. Citizens’ Climate Lobby and its hundreds of grassroots chapters throughout the U.S. are focused on building political will to pass the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763).  This presentation will introduce Citizens’ Climate Lobby and delve into the topic of carbon pricing and the specifics of the bi-partisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act bill.
