Rotary Club of Kirksville - Thousand Hills
March 07, 2019
Program: House Resolution 763;
Peter Goldman and Christine Harker
Peter and Christine are members of the NEMO Citizens Climate Lobby.  They informed our club of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.  This House Resolution (763) is a bipartisan climate solution to decrease carbon emissions through additional regulations and fees assessed on usage.  The bill was described as being able o reduce America's emissions by at least 40% in the first 12 years, improve overall health and save lives by reducing pollution, create 2.1 million new jobs, and increase per capita gross income as fees collecting will be redistributed to citizens. To learn more about HR 763 or the Citizens Climate Lobby visit their facebook page or
