Putting a Price on Washington's Climate Pollution
From Governor Inslee's carbon tax proposal to start-up tax reform groups like CarbonWA, Washington has become a national trailblazer in climate change reform. Join CarbonWA's founder Yoram Bauman (a stand-up comedian environmental economist!), 350.org's KC Golden, WA Policy Center's Todd Meyers, and Puget Sound SAGE's Nicole Vallestero Keenan to explore current proposals in environmental policy.
A cool fact about CarbonWA: Much of the group's organizing and work is done by students on UW's campus. You can check out the nifty Carbon Tax Swap calculator they developed for both businesses and households online.
