Carbon Fee and Dividend

CCL’s preferred climate solution is known as Carbon Fee and Dividend.

A national carbon fee-and-dividend system would place a steadily rising price on greenhouse gases with virtually all fees collected being returned to households as a monthly energy dividend.

In just 20 years, such a system could reduce carbon emissions to 50% of 1990 levels while adding 2.1 million jobs to the American economy.
