Putting a price on carbon has become a panacea for climate change in the minds of some, and is seen as necessary, if not sufficient, to many others. Because of this, Clean Energy Action is educating the community on our vision of a carbon fee and how it can effectively be used in Colorado. Rather than using the revenue for income tax neutrality, as proposed by think tanks and some policymakers, our version uses the revenues to create energy sector neutrality. By funding renewable energy mitigation efforts with the money generated, Colorado will drive down emissions, and move away from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas, integrating higher levels of cost saving energy efficiency and renewable energy generation.
