The People Vs. Carbon: Fossil Fuel Industry Challenges Rising Social Cost Of Carbon, reports the Climate Reality Project (CRP). The Feds recently increased the Social Cost of Carbon to $37, that is, the cost to US society per ton of carbon emissions each year. Consider US total emissions, and that adds up to a lot. The fossil fuel industry is challenging this hike, since the rising cost encourages more people to shift to clean energy, threatening fossil fuel profits. CRP says you can challenge ‘em back; CRP makes it easy for you to voice your support of the feds estimated cost here.
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
