Time to Put a Price on Carbon

It’s Time for a Price on Carbon

Reduce America’s carbon pollution quickly | 50% by 2030

Climate change threatens America’s communities and our economy. Putting a price on carbon is the single most powerful tool we have to turn the tide.

Tangible results in the first year

Climate change is at our doorstep. Putting a price on carbon would show tangible impacts within the first year, and reduce America’s carbon pollution by 50% by 2030, setting us on a track to net zero by 2050. It’s a tried and tested tool – more than 45 countries around the world already have a price on carbon.

Puts Americans back to work

A carbon price drives innovation in America’s businesses, creating millions of new jobs that put Americans back to work and making America the undisputed world leader in clean energy.

Backed by a broad coalition

2/3rds of Americans support a strong price on carbon, with the money given as a monthly payment, or “carbon cashback” to people. It’s also backed by a coalition of experts, including:

  • 3,500 economists
  • 27 Nobel Prize winning economist
  • Leading scientists, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
  • Business leaders like Elon Musk

Carbon Cashback

The money raised can go directly into the pockets of hardworking American families every month via a “carbon cashback”. This money is free for Americans to spend with no restrictions.
