Price on Carbon.org has as our objective to provide information on carbon pricing in an accessible format without prejudice on what pricing mechanism to use. We need to put the power of the market to work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, whether by cap and trade or carbon tax. And we need to do it soon, whether at state or national levels.
In order to reach agreement on the best methods for carbon pricing, we need bipartisan discussions, with open minds, to reach the most effective solution. We need all of us. And we need to move now.
Our website is endorsed by the League of Women Voters as part of their effort to get a price on carbon. The League works at all levels of government to educate and advocate for carbon pricing. The League’s position is:
“The League of Women Voters stands united with, and in support of, efforts to price carbon emissions, whether cap-and-trade, carbon tax/fee, or other viable pricing mechanisms. The League does not have a position on how the revenue generated is to be used.
“We do not espouse any single method of pricing carbon over another. We will evaluate all proposed methods based on their effectiveness to abate emissions and whether the method can be successfully implemented.”
