Citizens Climate Lobby

Today, I listened to a briefing call for Citizens Climate Lobby, an advocacy organization that is focused on putting political pressure on getting carbon pricing implemented. Carbon prices are probably the only way to really get to systemic change on emissions reductions. Their “carbon fee and dividend” idea is a simple approach with three legs: a rising price on carbon emissions, a per capita dividend returning 100% of those fees to citizens, and a border adjustment to assess tariffs on imports from non-carbon pricing countries. I need to study it a bit more, but it seems like something I can get behind.
