To the editor:
Happy Halloween! I hope you have selected your costume by now and wish you safe passage through the halls of horror!
I wish to speak to something far less frightening, a carbon tax and handsome dividend sent to you and all other U.S. citizens. It would vastly improve our health through cleaner air, add several million jobs, and remove a healthy chunk of our greenhouse gas emissions from earth’s atmosphere.
With the reconciliation budget bill nearing its final phase, we are hopeful that a carbon tax and dividend will be part of the package.
So give yourself a sweet treat by taking a minute or two and send a message to President Biden requesting that he support a carbon tax and dividend in the reconciliation budget. President Biden can be reached at cclusa.org/white-house.
