Initiative for resolutions by local governments

in support of a revenue-neutral federal carbon tax

Shape the national debate.

Mission: 1) Advocacy by concerned citizens nationwide acting as agents for change, working part time and short term with an official of their city, town or county government to pass a resolution, thereby prompting media coverage of the advantages of the carbon tax, with the local government sending copies of the resolution to federal lawmakers, and with publication here. 2) Following this feasible method, as the number of resolutions that are passed grows the increasing magnitude of the news will inspire the introduction of more resolutions, building momentum for a mandate. 3) No monetary donation is required, only very limited time.
