CSfC Energy and Climate Team/Citizens Climate Lobby Event-Monday, August 1

Please join us on Monday, August 1 to learn about the Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL), a national group that is promoting fee & dividend legislation. Gary Rucinski, Boston-area coordinator for CCL, will talk about the work of the lobby and answer questions. In late June Gary participated in some of CCL’s recent meetings in Washington, D.C. with members of our congressional delegation. He’ll let us know what they learned.

You may sign up at the CSfC Facebook page or send a note here.


Citizen's Climate Lobby is a well organized group working to bring about effective governmental action to address Climate Change.

Citizens Climate Lobby proposes a "Fee and Dividend" program to reduce the anthropogenic Greenhouse Gas footprint. In this program a fee would be assessed on fossil fuels. The fee would start out low -- $15 per ton -- and increase by $10-$15 each year, gradually putting pressure on business to reduce the carbon intensity of goods and services, and making alternative fuels more competititive by raising the price of fossil fuels to better reflect their true costs. 100 percent of the proceeds from the carbon fee would be equally distributed to all US citizens in the form of a monthly dividend check. This dividend would compensate citizens for the increased price of fuel and of goods and services brought about by the fee.
