The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says pricing carbon is the single most effective way to combat the climate crisis. In this session participants will be introduced to a free interactive climate solutions simulation tool from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. En-Roads is real-time scenario software that models carbon pricing and its effect on global temperature and carbon dioxide levels.

Learn how carbon pricing can become a reality in the United States from a preeminent voice on carbon fee and dividend, Dr. Danny Richter of Citizens Climate Lobby. He will speak about building bi-partisan support for HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Climate Dividend Act of 2019. The Act puts a steadily rising price on carbon and gives the money to households as dividends. Studies show that income, rather than geography, determines the effect of carbon pricing on citizens, and two-thirds of households will end up ahead. Predictions indicate this Act could bring greenhouse gas emissions down 40% by 2032.
