Carbon Pricing as a Solution to Climate Change
FCNL believes that carbon pricing is one of many essential tools that Congress should use to address climate change and shift towards a clean energy economy. While we have not endorsed any particular bill at this time, we are supportive overall of the efforts from both parties to advance carbon pricing legislation. We hope that the below resources will help our network advocate for just climate policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote equitable communities.
Carbon Pricing Bills: In-Depth Analysis
Several different bills to put a price on carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions have been introduced in the 116th Congress. As we analyze legislation, we will continue to evaluate bills based off of our carbon pricing principles. In particular, we look to see how carbon pricing legislation impacts low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous peoples, and other vulnerable communities. It is vital that any carbon pricing legislation ensures that these communities are not harmed, and benefit from the policy.
