On Friday, April 11, 2014, at 11:00 am, Citizens Climate Lobby will present a new whitepaper outlining a 2-step global climate solution. The plan will focus on putting carbon pricing first, to transform national and regional energy economies, then creating a more effective funding mechanism for needed climate response and deployment of new technologies.

Presenters at the April 11 event will be:

  • Sieren Ernst—Principal, Ethics and Environment
  • Erica Flock—Online Manager, EarthShare
  • Daniel Richter, PhD—Legislative & Science Director, Citizens Climate Lobby
  • Joseph Robertson—Strategic Coordinator, Citizens Climate Lobby

Central to the new whitepaper proposal will be the involvement of stakeholders in helping to shape national policies and report local impacts to strengthen the efficacy of a post-mitigation Climate Impact Response Fund (CIRF). This seminar discussion will bring to light economic efficiencies related to revenue-neutral carbon pricing, and how such a plan can build first-level resiliency: a measure of quality of resource availability at the human scale.
