Citizens’ Climate Lobby and carbon fee and dividend December 25, 2018 | 06:00 pm
The December 25th edition of RadioActive Magazine features an interview by Spencer Graves with with David Mitchell about the Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) and the "Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2018 (HR 7173). This is a bipartisan bill in the US House of Representatives to implement a "national carbon fee and dividend system" to rapidly reduce US carbon emissions in the face of our climate crisis. This bill taxes fossil fuel companies and returns those taxes in dividends to the public. The fees will increase the prices of fossil fuels, while people receiving the dividends pay the increases from their dividend checks. The result will make vehicles that use less carbon more competitive, thereby using the market to reduce carbon consumption. Simulations suggest that the US should be able to meet its carbon goals after 12 years into this program.
