We are the Greater New Haven chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby. We’re building support in Congress for a national bipartisan solution to climate change. One of over 400 chapters, we're working to pass the Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act because it's:
This policy will reduce America’s emissions by at least 40% in the first 12 years.
This policy will improve health and save lives. Additionally, the carbon dividend puts money directly into people’s pockets every month to spend as they see fit, helping low and middle income Americans.
This policy will create 2.1 million new jobs, thanks to economic growth in local communities across America.
Republicans and Democrats are both on board, cosponsoring this bill together. The majority of Americans support Congress taking action on climate change, including more than half of Republicans. Solving climate change is too urgent to get caught up in partisan politics.
The fees collected on carbon emissions will be allocated to all Americans to spend any way they choose. The government will not keep any of the fees collected.
