Carbon Fee Bill Introduced in the Senate – Sen. Whitehouse & Sen. Schatz co-sponsors

-

Whitehouse pointed out the environmental impact of carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels. He said it is “changing the atmosphere and the oceans. We see it in storm-damaged homes and flooded cities. We see it in drought-stricken farms and raging wildfires. We see it in fish disappearing from warming, acidifying waters. We see it in shifting habitats and migrating contagions.” And those things, he said, carry costs to homeowners, businesses and taxpayers—the “social cost of carbon.”
