Re: “Confrontation vs. innovation

Yes, a “carbon fee and dividend” makes enormous sense!

This way citizens would RECEIVE the carbon 
fees as a monthly dividend. That would cancel out any price spikes in dirty energy.

Polluters PAY the fees, so it holds fossil fuel corporations responsible for the damages they cause, hundreds of billions of dollars per year (Harvard School of Medicine).

It would rapidly lower emissions, as happened in BC Canada with a similar policy. BC lowered both emissions and taxes with their fees.

A study by respected Regional Economic Modeling, Inc. found the dividends would help to create 2.9 million additional jobs in 20 years.

To those who reject the science: perhaps nothing will change
 your mind. But what have you got against cleaner air, less asthma in our kids, fewer heart attacks, and more money (the dividend) in your pockets?

To those accepting the science: Any effort to
 limit the problem of climate change is worth it.

For example: the cost of sea level rise ALONE is so great that no effort to prevent it is unwarranted.

Why even bother with the paid deniers who thrive creating the 
delay of a false debate? IMO we must take action.
