“A carbon dividends policy could spur larger reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions than all of President Obama’s climate policies. At the same time, our plan would strengthen the economy, help working-class Americans, and promote national security.”

American Businessman

“This [isn’t] a left wing idea or a right wing idea, it [is] just a good idea...This has the potential to show that we can do big things, that we can do bipartisan things, and that economic tools and the environment don’t have to be in conflict.”
