The Power of Social Movements and a Carbon Fee

July 13, 2017 by Shanna Edberg

Last week, Climate Interactive co-founder Andrew Jones spoke at the Citizens’ Climate Lobby monthly meeting. In the talk, he told listeners his top ten reasons for climate hope and praised their efforts to apply a carbon fee and dividend - a high-leverage policy that will lead to greater energy efficiency, more renewable energy, and reduced carbon emissions.

Drew said: “We can do it. This is eminently doable. And what is the most powerful way to do it? A citizen’s movement for a carbon fee and dividend. This is why I think you all should leave this room and work ever more powerfully toward the mission that you’re already lined up on.”
