Club hosts Roger Kuhns Presenting a Proposal for a Federal Carbon Tax
The presentation has been posted to the EV Club YouTube Channel. Some key points below:
There have been numerous acts passed, studies conducted, and priorities articulated over the past 25 years or so, many of them with good ideas, but that hasn’t translated into commensurate progress on reducing emissions.
The targets the state has set are ambitious. They include include zero emissions from the power sector by 2040 and an 80% reduction in statewide emissions by 2050. But these are goals and don’t always get translated into actual policy with the speed that our climate emergency requires. We are not going to achieve them unless we stop investing in natural gas, push harder on renewables (including replacing Millstone with renewables when it goes offline), along with battery storage, and, oh yeah, lots more EVs.
Watch for yourself and let us know what you think.
