Congress is poised to vote on H. Con. Res. 119, which would condemn all carbon taxes as "detrimental to American families and businesses, and...not in the best interest of the United States.”
This is the upside down world of the Congressional Republican leadership.
Let's be clear: protecting clean air and our climate is obviously in the interest of the United States. While no silver bullet, if done right and fairly, a carbon tax would be a big step forward on the path to reaching net zero carbon emissions.
In contrast, the House resolution is a giant love note to the coal, oil, and gas industries and passing it would be a clear signal that Congress is in their pockets. And Republicans in the Climate Solutions Caucus — the climate peacocks — must vote NO if they are to have any credibility.
Add your name right now to demand that Congress vote NO on the anti-carbon-tax resolution.
