On April 22,  the SVSCCL (Silicon Valley South Citizen’s Climate Lobby) and the Morgan Hill Branch of the AAUW (American Association of University Women) are celebrating Earth Day 2021 by spreading the word on research regarding the viability of enacting carbon fees to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions.

This Earth Day presentation will focus on the causes of climate change, the effect it is having on our planet, and how passage of a national carbon fee and dividend bill will curb our nation’s emissions in practical and economically  viable ways.

Some 40 countries and more than 20 cities, states and provinces already use carbon pricing mechanisms, with more planning to implement them in the future.

The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R.2307) will reduce America’s carbon pollution to net zero by 2050 by putting a fee on carbon pollution while collected to Americans in the form of a monthly ‘carbon cash back’ payment.
