Pricing carbon in Vermont

The following letter to the editor (from yours truly) appeared in the Valley News on Friday, 13 February:

Charge for Carbon Pollution

To the editor:

As California's massive drought rolls on and Boston is buried in record snowfalls, it's apparent that something is going wrong with our planet's climate.

If you're like me and many others concerned about global warming and the unplanned experiment we are currently carrying out on the climate of the only livable planet we know of, you should be aware of a coming campaign to put a price on carbon pollution in Vermont. This campaign, under the name Energy Independent Vermont, will seek to reduce Vermont's carbon pollution, benefit the state's economy and create jobs, and do so in a way that is fair to low-income Vermonters. You can find out more about it at

Please join me and many other Vermonters in this effort to make carbon polluters pay while at the same time helping homeowners save energy and money. It's that simple.
