Carbon Tax Now


Our Mission: To slow and reverse climate change by generating and leveraging public support for emission reductions policies globally.

Our Reasons

We believe that climate change does and will increasingly cause irreparable damage to the ecosystem, global economies, and human living conditions. We believe that policy experts globally recognize that taxing CO2 and other emissions is the most — and perhaps only — effective approach to truly impacting current emissions trends. And we believe that a lack of public awareness and action is a primary barrier to enacting effective legislation.We believe that a global effort ultimately will be required to have the necessary impact, and that the only way to get there is by starting smaller incremental initiatives. We believe that implementing emissions taxation effectively and equitably is complex and fraught with challenges. We believe that by taking action there will be winners and losers, but with no action there are only losers.

The Facts

High Temperatures: Heat-trapping gases emitted by power plants, automobiles and other sources are warming up the planet. In fact, the five hottest years on record have all occurred since 1997 and the 10 hottest since 1990 including the warmest years on record 2005 and 2010.

Wildlife at Stake: Experts predict that one-fourth of Earth species will be headed for extinction by 2050 if the warming trend continues at its current rate.

Rising Sea Levels: Sea levels have risen between four and eight inches in the past 100 years. Current projections suggest that sea levels could continue to rise between 4 inches and 36 inches over the next 100 years.

Stronger Storms and Hurricanes: Scientific research indicates that climate change will cause hurricanes and tropical storms to become more intense, lasting longer, unleashing stronger winds, and causing more damage to coastal ecosystems and communities.

These Climate-Altering Realities will be Catastrophic for Humans in the Near Future

Our Activities

We are initially focused on petition drives and bringing awareness to policymakers globally about the level of popular support for stronger, broader initiatives to reduce climate change. Fundraising initiatives will support awareness and policy advocacy, and public dialogue on the often complex issues are supported through digital and event experiences.
