The League of Women Voters of Boulder County invites you for an informative Drinks and Dialogue at St. Vrain Cidery!
The topic: A bipartisan climate change solution in Congress –The Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act
Light snacks provided.
Climate change is a serious threat facing our nation and our planet. Come hear from representatives of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, an international nonpartisan organization that is working to pass the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R.763). This bill is the most aggressive greenhouse reduction legislation to come before the U.S. Congress in over a decade. The concept behind the bill, carbon fee and dividend, has been part of the climate policy discussion for some time. CCL has been advocating for this kind of policy for ten years because it’s effective, good for people, good for the economy, and revenue neutral.
