WHEREAS...
The costs of climate change -- including destabilized weather patterns, rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and other serious impacts -- now pose a substantial threat to the health, prosperity and security of Americans. The costs are real, they are growing, and they are already burdening businesses, taxpayers, municipal budgets and families. Our economy, infrastructure, public safety and health are directly at risk.

Prudent action now will be far less costly than the consequences of delayed response and will create a more stable business environment for our nation.

Therefore we make the following endorsements:
Therefore I make the following endorsements:
I urge Congress to sponsor and/or support measures that will:
  • Acknowledge the serious threat posed by climate change.
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a clear, transparent and effective way.

I urge Congress to support Carbon Fee & Dividend as a key element in reducing the risks of climate change. Carbon Fee & Dividend will significantly reduce carbon emissions, create jobs, grow the economy, save lives and protect households from higher energy prices.
We urge Congress to support Carbon Fee & Dividend as a key element in reducing the risks of climate change. Carbon Fee & Dividend will significantly reduce carbon emissions, create jobs, grow the economy, save lives and protect households from higher energy prices.
Carbon Fee & Dividend will place a fee on fossil fuels at the source (at the well, mine, or port of entry), beginning at $15/metric ton of CO2 equivalent emissions, and steadily increase annually at $10/metric ton. All revenues are returned to American households on a per-capita basis as a monthly dividend. Finally, a border adjustment assesses a fee or rebate on goods traded with countries without a comparable carbon price.

Enacting such a policy will:
  • Send a clear price signal to entrepreneurs and existing businesses to invest in a clean-energy economy 
  • Protect lower and middle-income households, as two-thirds of families will break even or receive more in dividends than they would pay for in higher living expenses
  • Create jobs, as the dividend puts money back into local economies 
  • Discourage domestic businesses from relocating where they can emit more CO2 and encourage other           nations to adopt an equivalent price on carbon
