John Kelley’s excellent Voice “The Climate’s a-Gonna Change” did a great job explaining all the details of a carbon tax and the need for congressional legislation.
The IPCC report confirms that climate change is progressing faster than scientists had predicted, and we must accelerate our efforts to end our use of fossil fuels. The only way to energize Americans to become more energy efficient and to switch to renewables is to motivate them with money.
Currently, fossil fuel pollution is allowed for free. If we charge a fossil fuel pollution tax (aka a carbon tax), people will rush to lower their emissions and save money.
Please endorse carbon tax legislation and make sure it is an issue discussed as part of this year’s congressional election campaigning.
