Yes to Carbon Tax, But Do It Right


We're thrilled to see a group of prominent Republicans propose what many on the left have been demanding for many years: a serious tax on carbon emissions. Background:
Climate Leadership Council: The Conservative Case for Carbon Dividends

This should be done, and is in everyone's interest to support. But it should be done right. Please sign the petition below:

We support a strictly and fairly enforced carbon tax. Emissions must be honestly monitored by the government, and the tax imposed equally on all, without loopholes for cronies, and at a rate that is adjusted each year as needed to maximize the chances of the earth's climate remaining habitable, as determined by nonpartisan scientific consensus.
