There is a revenue-neutral, market-driven way to move from being a society run on carbon-intensive energy to one powered by low or no-emitting sources.
A carbon fee and dividend would incentivize a move, over time, to lower emitting energy sources by placing a fee on carbon and paying dividends to consumers out of money collected through the fee. This offers protection to consumers while making it more economically attractive to emit less carbon.
A more complete explanation of the proposal, including protections for American manufacturers and exporters, can be found at citizensclimatelobby.org/carbon-fee-and-dividend-faq.
We are capable of a bright future offering many more job opportunities with new, rapidly developing, clean, energy technologies.
