Forests and Farms: Allies in Climate Solutions - #CCL2019 Conference

Forests and Farms: Allies in Climate Solutions - #CCL2019 Conference

June 21, 2019

Jad Daley, President & CEO, American Forests
Debbie Reed, Executive Director, Ecosystem Services Market Consortium (ESMC)
Moderated by CCL Agriculture Action Team Lead Jan Elise Storm
Forests, farms and wetlands in the United States already provide a substantial net carbon sink and have the capacity to reduce net annual greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. by up to 21% through actions that will increase carbon storage and avoid greenhouse gas emissions. This session will show how leveraging management of forests and farms to deliver these reductions can amplify the impact of an economy-wide carbon price (e.g., the EICDA) on atmospheric carbon levels, making climate stabilization by 2050 more possible -- all while achieving multiple ecological co-benefits.

In addition, it will include estimates of government revenues and individual rebates, and it will survey the literature on important impacts of the policy beyond the scope of the Columbia/Rhodium analysis.

A New Day for the Coalfields - #CCL2019 Conference

A New Day for the Coalfields - #CCL2019 Conference

June 21, 2019

Adele Morris, Senior fellow and policy director for Climate and Energy Economics, Brookings Institute
With CCL Leaders Paul Burke and Jim Probst

This session presents CCL’s Coal Country Action Team’s white paper, “A New Day for the Coalfields” which calls for a 1% carve out from the fees collected, to be returned to the coalfields to aid in a just transition. This carve out for coal makes the bill more palatable for coal state legislators which impacts about 25 states. Even in a world with the EICDA, there is more to be done to provide opportunity to replace jobs and revenue in states and communities dealing with a rapidly declining coal industry.

CCL Training: Strategies for Success with Municipal Resolutions

CCL Training: Strategies for Success with Municipal Resolutions

June 18, 2019

Join Sandy Simon, CCL's National Resolutions Project Coordinator, for a training that outlines one of the most impactful ways we can express local political will - through obtaining resolutions in support of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act from our local municipal governing bodies.

City councils and boards of supervisors are in touch with their communities every day, are attentive to local voices, and can send strong messages on behalf of their entire citizenry. Think of local resolutions as endorsements on steroids. When a city, county or state passes one, they are sending a message to Congress on behalf of many thousands of people.
