At the Tri-Valley Citizens Climate Lobby meeting on June 27, Dr. Shi Ling Hsu by video and Evan Branning in person discussed the economic and personal costs of climate change.

Dr. Hsu, the Associate Dean for Environmental Programs at Florida State University College of Law, believes that approaching members of Congress with respect and politeness concerning climate change and carbon taxes would work better than entering conversations with demands. Earlier this year, 45 top economists, including former White House economic advisors, formal chairs of the federal reserve, Nobel Laureates and Republicans and Democrats signed a letter stating, “Carbon tax offers the most cost effective lever to reduce carbon emissions at the scale and speed necessary to reduce climate change.” In addition, the letter recommended that money/dividends from the tax be returned to American households. This would help reverse the effects on the poorest who would be hurt most by the tax.
