Letter to the Editor Opportunity in Newsday!

Please be on the lookout for similar coverage in other publications, as well.

Use print title: New Emissions Limits, Aug. 3, by Josh Lederman, Associated Press. (Author’s name does not appear in online version.)

Talking points:

-In the absence of Congressional action, these regulations are a critical first step to reduce future climate impacts

-If Congress doesn’t like the EPA regulations, they could pass a better, market-based plan, like carbon fee and dividend, which would be more efficient (more carbon reductions, more jobs added)

-Critics complain that India and China will not reduce emissions, but a carbon fee with border adjustment would incentivize global adoption of our carbon price… and the U.S. should lead, not follow, leading up to Paris talks
