Time for action! Legislation that would pay people to improve the environment and mitigate climate change has been introduced in Congress and in the Hawaii legislature-Senate Bill SB2732 and House Bill HB2278 (Carbon Cashback). Putting a gradual rising tax on fossil fuels coming into our economy and passing along the collected money to our residents is a strategy that will help us transition to cleaner energy and transportation. Pricing is a powerful solution as it incentivizes a system-wide change in consumer behavior.
Want to support this bill to encourage residents to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels and save money? Call or write your State Senator and Representatives today to ask them to support it (find your legislator here).
