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.
Good for Business: Carbon pricing is a free market solution. Utah business and industry will lead the way on renewable energy solutions.
Great for Silicon Slopes: A price on carbon unleashes American innovation and lets us lead the way to a clean technology future. Services from tech startups in Silicon Slopes will be in high demand.
Good for Utah Families: Utah has the largest average household size in the nation. It’s critical our children receive the same gifts we received from Utah’s environment.
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.
