Letter: Encouraging to see both parties work towards climate change solution
To the Editor:
It is with good news that we find out that 5 members of Congress have sponsored a bill on Climate Change. Sponsored by 3 Democrats and 2 Republicans it is so encouraging to see parties can work together.
The bill, Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act is a climate solution “that goes further on any national party to date, creating over 2 million new jobs, lowering health care costs, promoting energy innovation and encouraging consumer spending.”
What this bill will do is apply a nationwide price on carbon emissions and returning the revenue to citizens each month.
What the results will do is lower carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% in the first 12 years. We all need to help work on addressing the concerns of the environment and thank you for doing it.
