Pricing Carbon to Fight Climate Change

Wednesday, November 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Climate change caused primarily by the burning of fossil fuels is probably the most important issue that humanity faces in this century. One effective way to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is to put a price on them, a price high enough to motivate residents and businesses to find ways reduce their output of these gases.

Bills have been introduced in the Massachusetts Legislature to put a price on greenhouse gas pollution, but they have not yet been voted on.

The panelists, all of whom are actively working to prevent climate change, will discuss the need for a price on carbon in Massachusetts and beyond, and how to press the Legislature to make Massachusetts the first state to put it into law. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

This event is co-sponsored by 350 Massachusetts/Better Future Project and the Coalition for a Clean Energy Future.
