Climate change presents an urgent call to action. Personal actions are important, but only one third of all emissions are under our direct control. Policies that put a price on carbon have the power to change the economics to keep carbon in the ground, spur renewable energy innovation, and stimulate the economy. When combined with a dividend that is reimbursed to citizens, it also provides a just solution for low- and middle-income families.
Several presidential candidates are supportive of carbon pricing and dividends, and our state legislature is also considering a carbon pricing bill, which has been co-sponsored by 93 reps (60% of the MA House).
The presenters are Lora Sandhusen, chair of the Pioneer Valley Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL), and Jeff Clark, who is a UUSA member, CCL volunteer and long-time climate activist. The Citizens Climate Lobby is committed to getting bi-partisan support for market-driven solutions to climate change.
