      Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act: Making the Right Thing Easy

      As individuals, businesses, and as a nation, we have failed to respond adequately to our climate crisis. It seems it is just too hard for us to do the right thing environmentally.      But we can make the right thing easy in a way that is utterly fair, effective, and feasible. We can reduce CO2 emissions 40% in 12 years and 90% by 2050 as the science says we must. We can also prevent thousands of pollution-related deaths, create jobs, put money in Americans’ pockets, and save species from extinction in the process. We can.      Legislation like the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act is our best way of preventing the worst of climate change from happening because it fixes a long-recognized flaw in the marketplace. Who says so? Ninety-eight percent of all economists as well as former Chairs of the Federal Reserve and Secretaries of the U.S. Treasury.      What is this flaw in the marketplace that is working against the ecological health of the planet? How does this bill fix that flaw? How does it empower American citizens?      Get answers, know the fine print, and learn what you can do to help turn this bill into law.
