I’ve been seeing more and more in the news lately about carbon pricing, including language being added to the Democratic Party Platform for 2016. I think this is awesome, as I see a carbon price as the single most effective policy tool we could employ in mitigating climate change. A group in Washington state are working to pass the first proper carbon price in the United States through a ballot initiative this fall, I-732. I’ve been quietly supporting them for the past year or so, and I’m a big fan of what they are up to and their persistence in the face of a lot of opposition. CNN did a great write-up on the campaign a couple of months ago. Great reading for anyone interested in what carbon pricing is about and the pressure it faces in the U.S.
