Tell your Representative in Congress: Put a price on carbon

To protect our health and the health of the planet, U.S. policymakers must use every practical policy tool to make a zero-carbon transformation a reality -- promoting rapid deployment of renewable energy sources, investing in research and development of clean energy technologies and energy efficiency and taking regulatory actions to push polluters away from using dirty fossil fuels. A central element in this strategy should be putting a price on carbon pollution (known as carbon pricing) to push polluters to cut emissions and switch to clean energy. Tell your representative in Congress to make polluters pay for the damage they cause; incentivize them to use energy more efficiently; and shift from oil, coal and natural gas to clean, renewable energy.
