Carbon Tax & Dividend Explained – Citizens Climate Lobby UK

Carbon Tax & Dividend Explained – Citizens Climate Lobby UK


subtitles The climate is changing. Extreme weather
is disrupting livelihoods and food supplies around the world. This is the scientific community’s consensus. Carbon emissions are driving that change. Emissions come from
burning fossil fuels. So if we want to slow or even reverse that change we must lower our fossil fuel use by charging a fee on fossil fuels returning them to
their households as a dividend. We can do just that, starting a chain of
positive effects. Fossil fuels become less desirable, cleaner sources of energy
become more competitive, the dividend creates millions of jobs. Carbon pollution goes down. And climate change is brought under control. But enacting the carbon fee
and dividend isn’t in our power – it’s in theirs. We can use our voices to express political will and DEMAND action! We must help our elected leaders work together. It’s on us to tell them what we want as a group. Because when voices call out together their impact multiplies. Governments can respond to the will of the people –
provided we tell the government what we want. And what we want is a livable world. This is what Citizens Climate Lobby works for – to empower citizens to connect with and influence their members of parliament. To spread the idea that each one of us can address climate change.
