Cabinet Nominees Support Carbon Pricing

Citizens Climate Lobby:  John Kerry, nominee for climate envoy, writes, “With carbon pricing, those causing emissions pay for the cost of damage. Without carbon pricing, we all pay the cost.”

Janet Yellen, nominee for Treasury Secretary, said last year, “I believe that climate change is a serious problem demanding an immediate policy response and a carbon tax offers the most cost-effective lever to reduce carbon emissions at the scale and speed that is necessary."

Gina McCarthy, nominee to head White House Office of Climate Policy, says, "If Congress can pass a tax that does more than we’re able to do through regulation, I would consider that to be one of the greatest successes we’ve had to address one of the greatest public health threats of our time.”
