Carbon Fee and Dividend is the climate change solution created by Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) to account for the costs of burning fossil fuels. Climate scientists and economists alike say this solution is the best first step to reducing the likelihood of catastrophic climate change from global warming.
- Place a steadily rising fee on fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas).
- Give all of the revenue from the carbon fee back to households.
- Use a border adjustment to discourage business relocation. This will establish the U.S. as a global solutions leader while creating an incentive for other nations to put a fee on carbon pollution.
- It’s good for the economy AND even better for the climate.
