Some in Congress are becoming less resistant to taking the bold steps necessary to put an effective price on carbon. Now is the time to strongly lobby your Representatives and Senators in support of bi-partisan proposals for a price on carbon – either cap and trade or carbon tax. Look at the trend. The tide is beginning to turn giving us the opening to make real progress.
But you don’t have to rely on the feds. Your state or region can work to put a price on carbon, like has happened with California, Quebec, and British Columbia, and with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative of nine northeastern states. See what your state is doing.
