Join forces on climate change
February 3, 2015
Fortunately, we can have our cake and eat it, too. Prominent conservatives and progressives, Republicans and Democrats alike, support a free-market solution that not only decreases carbon emissions but grows the economy, builds jobs and does not raise taxes. The carbon-fee-and-dividend proposal raises the price of polluting (carbon emissions) but returns all the money collected back to households.
This is the defining issue of this century, and change is coming. I encourage Reps. Devin Nunes,
R-Tulare, and Jim Costa, D-Fresno, to be at the forefront of this tidal wave and work to implement a solution.
