LTE Opportunity Not-Quite-Weekly Roundup 3/6

I do plan to get these posts on an at-least-weekly basis soon. Feel free to share in the comments any opportunities you discover throughout the week!


Washington Post/Associated Press, 3/6

A carbon tax would be more effective than the EPA rules, create jobs in low-carbon energy industries, and give conservatives the smaller government they’ve always wanted.

As the planet heats up, droughts will become more widespread, devastating crops and costing billions. A carbon tax is our best insurance against future climate impacts. (Although CA’s drought may not be directly caused by climate change, it reminds us that extreme weather is expensive.)


Newsday, 3/4

When it comes to energy sources, we shouldn’t be asking the Governor to pick winners. With a carbon tax, we could let the market decide.

Newsday, 3/1

On the need to engage in democracy, Goldmark asks: “Suppose none of us ever talk things over with the people with whom we disagree?” CCL is committed to bipartisan dialog and grassroots action for a carbon tax.


NY Times, 2/27

A carbon tax would render the pipeline debate moot. The market would select the best sources of energy based on both their benefits and costs to society.
