Washington, DC — A new carbon fee proposal from U.S. Senators Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) lays out an ambitious, common-sense path to pricing carbon pollution and getting to net-zero emissions in the coming years. The National Wildlife Federation heralded the Climate Action Rebate Act as an important approach to help reassert our nation’s global leadership on climate solutions and mitigate the destructive effects of our changing climate.
“Addressing the climate crisis and the increasingly devastating fires, floods, storms and heatwaves it fuels will require ambitious and creative solutions,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Senators Coons and Feinstein’s new Climate Action Rebate Act is an innovative, market-based and equitable approach to reducing carbon emissions. The bill supports the revitalization of frontline communities and incentivizes the technologies and strategies necessary in all sectors to comprehensively address climate change. We encourage the Senate to begin debating bills like the Climate Action Rebate Act as part of a comprehensive effort to reduce emissions and bolster resilience to stave off escalating health, safety, and security climate impacts.”
