Reader thanks Rep. Johnson for climate legislation
Members of Congress often take heat from people who disagree with their actions or statements. It’s only fitting, then, that they hear some appreciation for the good things they do.
Rep. Hank Johnson deserves our thanks for being a co-sponsor of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Introduced on April 1, this legislation would place a rising fee on carbon pollution and give revenue from the fee to households to cover rising energy costs. This market-based incentive will drive down greenhouse gas emissions. Together with other measures, like better fuel-efficiency standards and climate-friendly infrastructure, this policy will help us achieve the essential goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. Thank you, Rep. Johnson, for being a leader on climate solutions!
