Joseph Robertson commented on Bending the Curve toward Reasoned Action 2015-01-03 01:33:07 -0500The most comprehensive analysis done of a Fee and Dividend plan was done by Regional Economic Models, Inc. (REMI), in the US. The study modeled 160 sectors and 9 regions, as well as 5 income quintiles, and so provides insights that can be applied to other markets and contexts. You can find robust REMI resources, including both the full report and a 4-page summary, here: http://www.citizensclimatelobby.org/remi-report
Joseph Robertson commented on Oct 11 2014: World Bank Civil Society Forum 2014-11-14 09:23:17 -0500Hi Jan, as we all know, politics is complicated, and you have to be present to have a say. That is why Citizens’ Climate Lobby is mobilizing thousands of citizen volunteers, who work together as always active teams, to build constructive, respectful, working relationships with their own members of Congress, including every skeptic and opponent of climate action. These citizens find common ground with their elected officials, spend time listening to their concerns and priorities, discuss shared values that allow them to discover together the basic economic wisdom of a revenue-neutral fee and dividend plan, as illustrated here: http://poeteconomist.com/mainstreet
There are many in the GOP who want to be part of a climate solution. It’s the perceived lack of general political will to support such action that keeps people of conscience from working together. We are getting citizens into the game, to take party politics out of this issue, and get a real solution.

Please return to this page for updates. A draft of this strategy was the focus of CCL's Scalable Climate Restoration seminar at the World Bank Civil Society Forum, on April 11, 2014.
Also part of our work to launch the Pathway to Paris strategy:
On the morning of the UN Climate Summit, while the heads of state were attending a plenary session, our Voice of the People online forum marked the first in a series of Global Online Policy Forum sessions, that will bring stakeholders and policy-makers together, between now and the Paris COP21 meetings at the end of 2015. The shortlink ccl.buzz will take you to the homepage for this series of events.
Global Online Policy Forum: Stakeholders' Voices and our Climate Future
- Date: Tuesday, September 23, 2014
- Time: 10:00 am ET
- Location: Global video conference, webcast from Impact Hub NYC

As impacts from global climate change gather force and escalate, a network of partners across the world is looking to secure an effective agreement in Paris, at the end of 2015, to stave off catastrophic climate disruption. The "bundle of everything" strategy for global treaty negotiations has not given us a true global solution. So, Citizens' Climate Lobby is launching an initiative to bring stakeholders into the process of decision-making, build connections between organizations, governments, individuals and enterprise, and mount a coalition effort to secure an agreement to motivate carbon pricing country by country that follows these standards:
- A steady, resolute and rising carbon price.
- Internalizing costs incrementally, steadily and with no leakage.
- Simple, transparent, effective at reducing emissions.
- Building economic value at the human scale.
- Easy to implement: country by country, harmonizing across borders.
