We lobby for conservative solutions to climate change

Conservatives are talking about climate policy. Several legislative solutions have garnered significant conservative support.

Carbon fee and dividend

A carbon fee reduces emissions by putting a predictable fee on those emissions and returning all revenues to the American people. This de-incentivizes emissions and gives markets an incentive to move to cleaner technologies.

Pricing carbon is good for Utah business and families.

Some heavy hitters have also expressed their support for carbon pricing. The pro-carbon fee crowd includes Senator Mitt Romney, Utah State Representative Ray Ward, 3,500 economists, all living ex-Federal Reserve Chairs, the US Chamber of Commerce and the American Petroleum Institute.
