Carbon Fee and Dividend

Reduce emissions and grow the economy

CCL’s preferred climate solution is known as Carbon Fee and Dividend (CF&D).

A national, revenue-neutral CF&D system would place a predictable, steadily-rising price on carbon and other greenhouse gases, with all fees collected minus administrative costs being returned to households as a monthly energy dividend.

In just 20 years, studies show, such a system could reduce carbon emissions to 50% of 1990 levels while adding 2.1 million jobs about baseline to the American economy.
