Dec 2018 Monthly Meeting with Per Espen Stoknes

December 8, 2018

On CCL's December call, Executive Director Mark Reynolds reviews all of the significant actions that CCL groups across the country have done since the historic Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act was introduced.

We are also joined by Per Espen Stoknes, a Norwegian psychologist and politician for the Green Party who served as a deputy representative to the Parliament of Norway.

He weaves together psychology and economics in imaginative ways, often revolving around our human relationships to the natural world and to each other. He is the author of the book, What We Think About When We Try Not to Think About Global Warming. Stoknes posits that people have five inner defenses that stop people from engaging on climate change, and he offers ways to "flip" those defenses.

CCL: Introducing The Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividends Act Webinar

November 28, 2018

In November 2018, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act was introduced in Congress by two Republicans and three Democrats. This historic bipartisan bill would enact carbon fee and dividend into law when passed, and is the result of the hard work and support of thousands of CCL volunteers over many years.

Call Outline (skip forward to times listed): The Bill's Background (starts at 1:43), Review of the Bill's Basic Framework (starts at 7:31), Review of Actions & Next Steps (starts at 15:57), Review of Where to Find Resources on Community (starts at 22:22) Mark Wraps up (starts at 30:21).

Join CCL's Mark Reynolds, Madeleine Para, and Danny Richter in a webinar that celebrates this achievement, reviews the basic framework of the bill, and highlights what CCL is calling on volunteers to do today, tomorrow, and over the next few weeks to help now that a bill introduced.

The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2018 incorporates the most important provisions of carbon fee and dividend: a fee on carbon emissions at the source that starts at $15 per ton and goes up $10 per year, and a full dividend allocated to households. There are also a few provisions that have been added that are not in our proposal.
