A Carbon Tax
Wed, Sep 28, 6:45 pm
Center for Business and Industry
18th and Callowhill Sts, Phila
Peter Handler from the Philadelphia Chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) will discuss a carbon pricing policy called Carbon Fee and Dividend - an approach that creates a level playing field for all sources of energy while proteting household budgets and growing jobs and GDP.
Peter will further discuss how CCL works with Congress.
The Sierra Club supports the idea of a national and international carbon market - putting a price on carbon. We encourage legislators to find a way to ease burden of a carbon fee on those that are econimically deprived and weight the dividend to support those that are impacted by climate change and to help with training for those that are currently working in declining fossil fuel industries. See our full policy on Carbon Markets HERE.
