Hope for Climate Action: A New Bi-Partisan Bill To Reduce Fossil Fuel Use

Posted by BradMcFall

Presented by Prof. Nancy Jacobson and John Finn from the local chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby

Protecting the Earth from global warming will take more than reducing our individual energy use. It will take collective action. Our elected officials must work together to address climate change at the national level.

Come learn about a bill that is already doing that— the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, a newly introduced federal bill with bi-partisan support. This carbon fee and dividend policy reduces fossil fuel use and spurs conservation and alternative energy development. Help get it passed!
