Carbon WA has been launched. This is a ballot initiative to put a price on carbon in Washington State. It’s modelled on the very successful carbon tax in British Columbia.
Now that climate legislation is dead in Congress and the Western Climate Initiative (WCI) is on life-support, this is a great way for Washingtonians to keep moving forward to address climate change.
If you think this is a good idea, visit carbonwa.org and pledge a little time or money. Right now all that’s happening is collecting pledges for next year. If you’re super-excited about this, get involved right now and help spread the word. You can also “like” the initiative on Facebook.
