The Carbon Tax Center Last Year . . . and in 2018

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 23:03:13 +0000

Everyone’s 2017 was eventful . . . and disruptive . . . and difficult. From January into April, we, like many of you, marched and protested while trying to see a way forward for carbon taxes under a denialist U.S. regime. We spoke at gatherings across New York City. We published an article in The […]

Five Down: Climate Solutions Caucus to lose another Republican

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 00:09:59 +0000

33 to 28. It may look like a football score, but it’s actually the downsizing of the Republican side of the Climate Solutions Caucus. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA-49) this morning announced he’s not seeking an eleventh term representing northern coastal areas of San Diego County in Congress. He joins departing GOP caucus members Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL-27), […]

A Strong Thread Connects Congestion Pricing and Carbon Taxes

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 15:56:29 +0000

Could Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s declaration in August that congestion pricing for New York City “is an idea whose time has come” bring needed momentum to carbon taxing? A strong thread connects congestion pricing and carbon taxes. Just as limited street space in New York warrants a congestion fee, the atmosphere’s limited capacity to absorb carbon […]

The arc of the physical universe appears to be short, and it bends toward heat. Win soon or suffer the consequences.”

Bill McKibben, in Winning Slowly Is the Same as Losing, Rolling Stone, Dec. 1.

Climate change is not a future threat; it is happening now, and we are paying for it in lost lives and billions of dollars in damage.”

Bob Corker and the Climate Swerve

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 18:31:33 +0000

The trope shown at left, about Trump “holding the planet hostage,” isn’t entirely new. But it came into sharper relief for me over the weekend as I read Robert Jay Lifton’s insightful new book, The Climate Swerve. And it gave added weight to the apostasy of a ranking Republican senator who earlier this month told the […]

There are now 30 self-proclaimed climate-concerned House R’s. This new bill could be their gut check.

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 21:21:34 +0000

The day after the Congressional climate solutions caucus added its 30th Republican member, a dozen U.S. Senators, all Democrats, introduced a bill that could help gauge how serious these House R’s are about tackling the climate crisis. The Pollution Transparency Act, sponsored by Sen. Michael Bennet and 11 fellow Senators including Warren (D-MA), Wyden (D-OR) and  Whitehouse (D-RI), […]

Minnesota state auditor stakes campaign for governor on carbon dividend

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 19:27:30 +0000

(This post was researched and co-authored by CTC volunteer Diane Englander.) A prominent Minnesota politician is hitching her candidacy for governor to a carbon dividend plan designed to reduce climate-damaging emissions and create jobs in clean energy. State Auditor Rebecca Otto unveiled her Minnesota-Powered Clean Energy Plan on Sept. 20. The landing page of her […]

[We have been] engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us.”

David Wallace-Wells, “The Uninhabitable Earth,” New York magazine, July 9. (Quoted by David Roberts in We have no system to deal with escalating climate damages. It’s time to build one, at, Sept 21, in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.)
