The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act

September 2, 2020

The following was sent to us by Marilyn Judson, a very long-time member of SMBAS, so we’re passing it on to you, our alert readers. The SMBAS board has not yet taken any position on this issue.

The West Los Angeles chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) hopes to make a short presentation soon at a ZOOM meeting of our Board and/or chapter members on a climate change bill they support: the “Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act” or HR 763. Eighteen other Audubon chapters have already endorsed this bill. Take a look at this funny and insightful video on CCL and HR 763:

The CCL YouTube channel has many additional videos.

HR763 will reduce America’s greenhouse gases (GHG) by 40% in the first 12 years by putting a price on each ton of carbon in fossil fuels, thereby creating a competitive advantage for non-carbon energy sources like solar.  The revenue collected will be returned to taxpayers as a monthly dividend, which will help lower-income families to transition to sustainable energy sources like solar.  A carbon fee and dividend approach to address global warming has been endorsed by 4 former chairs of the Federal Reserve, 27 Nobel Laureates, and 15 former Chairs of the Council of Economic Advisers
