En­ergy in­no­va­tion and car­bon div­i­dend act wel­come

South Florida Sun-Sentinel Palm Beach (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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.
