Energy innovation and carbon dividend act welcome
As a worried citizen of Florida and the world, I was delighted to read in the Sun Sentinel that three of our Florida congressmen, Representatives Deutch, Crist and Rooney, are among the bi-partisan sponsors of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.
This legislation will be a great step forward in alleviating the problem. Putting a fee on fossil fuels at their source will create, in the long run, the economyenhancing search for other energy sources. New industries will develop and thrive. The dividend portion of the bill will provide funds to households who will be impacted by, initially, increased costs. In other words, the fees will go directly to the public, minus administrative costs.
This is a win-win for all of us.......and for our planet.
