WE SUPPORT A NATIONAL CARBON PRICE THAT PROTECTS VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES AND SECURES OUR TRANSITION TO A 100% CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY
Climate change is the biggest threat to our collective future. We need national policy that reduces climate pollution, holds polluters accountable, and rapidly transitions our economy to renewable energy. We need a price on carbon.
Dozens of countries and jurisdictions have enacted carbon pricing mechanisms, and the evidence is in: carbon pricing enables renewable energy to flourish, helps phase out polluting energy sources, and lowers emissions. A strong carbon price will rise quickly enough to work without burdening low-income and middle-class families, and won’t create new dependencies on fossil fuel profits.
Therefore, we, the undersigned, support a national carbon price that will protect vulnerable communities and secure our transition to a 100% clean energy economy. We join together behind these principles, because we no longer have the luxury to delay real action.
