Climate Group Officially Launches Carbon Pricing Petition
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) Canada has launched a parliamentary e-petition, sponsored by Marc Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt, calling upon the Canadian Parliament to improve the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act.
World-leading climate scientist Dr. James Hansen is a strong advocate for Canada’s carbon pricing policy, “Canada can lead the world toward solving the climate crisis if Canada will simply make its carbon dividend transparent by issuing it as a bank or debit card deposit or a cheque,” he says. “Only with such transparency will the public allow the price of fossil fuels to rise as is needed to phase out fossil fuels.”
Check out 2 excellent articles, Canada’s Carbon Tax and Refund Explained and Canada’s Carbon Tax In Brief Or, Your New Source of Income written by Glenn Marshall, from Drawdown Richmond Hill and member of CCL.
More details and to sign petition.
