Congress “Fiddles While U.S. Burns”

Continuing “Business As Usual” fossil fuel use, is nothing short of madness. We have the technology, knowledge and ability to segue to renewable energy now. We can enact a price on carbon, with 100% of dividends given to citizens. This free market solution, advocated by the world’s leading economists and scientists, will grow the economy, create jobs and drastically lessen carbon emissions. We can sequester carbon on 11% of currently unused cropland, which will begin to slow, and ultimately reverse manmade global warming, ocean acidification and desertification. We have the solutions, what’s missing is the political will. We can no longer afford the price of inaction. We call on our world leaders, attending COP 21 in Paris later this year, to finally enact enforceable goals and move us toward a carbon-free future, or they’ll be no future for us. Let’s choose to create a stronger, cleaner, safer, healthier, happier, more prosperous and sustainable world.
