Pricing Carbon to Fight Climate Change


WGBHForum

Published on Dec 11, 2015

An effective way to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases may be to put a price on them—a price high enough to motivate residents and businesses to find ways reduce their output of these gases.

Climate change activists say controlling the burning of fossil fuels is probably the most important issue that humanity faces in this century, and yet bills in the Massachusetts Legislature calling for a price on greenhouse gas pollution have not yet been voted on.

Each of the speakers at this forum are actively working to prevent climate change, and they will discuss the need for a price on carbon in Massachusetts and beyond, as well as how to press the Legislature to make Massachusetts the first state to put it into law.
