If we break our earth - we simply cannot buy it back. But if we implement carbon pricing, we can change the dynamics that are making things worse.
Carbon pricing works by charging an accurate price for fossil fuels. Instead of making them cheaper (and letting the rest of us live with the consequences), carbon pricing builds in the long-term costs of climate change.
The end result is that we’ll make smarter decisions about what to buy.
Once you see how much it REALLY costs to produce that plastic bottle or fly that plane, you can make an informed choice about whether it’s worth it or not.
This is happening around the world.
Of all the world’s developed economies, only Australia and the U.S. do not have some version of nationwide carbon pricing in place. Over time, these approaches will become more nuanced and powerful, and the time to start is now.
It’s time to organize and ask our governments to do better.
