Our Policy Solution

Revenue-neutral Carbon Fee & Dividend

Place a modest, steadily rising price on fossil fuel emissions.  Return all net revenue to Americans on an equal per capita basis through monthly dividends.  A border adjustment protects US exporters and makes sure foreign trading partners are paying their fair share.  The policy has strong support across the political spectrum as the most efficient and effective way to accelerate our shift to cleaner energy, while maintaining a healthy economy and sheltering lower-income earners from price shocks.
