Tell Washington: I Shouldn't Pay the Price for Carbon Pollution
You're paying a high price for carbon pollution. As climate change continues, the financial burdens of floods, fires, rising food prices, and other climate-related problems fall heavily on taxpayers.
After careful analysis, the White House and the Office of Management and Budget have raised the estimated cost of carbon pollution -- an important factor in all of America's efforts to fight climate change. But the dirty air lobby is fighting back.
Don't let them win. Voice your strong support for using the best science in calculating the cost of carbon pollution today!
Dear Mr. Shelanski,
I support OMB's science-based revisions of the social cost of carbon pollution.
I believe in protecting the environment, and I believe in using science to make smart policy decisions.

I support EDF for exactly this reason, and I applaud that OMB undertook in 2013 to raise the current estimate of the Social Cost of Carbon to $37 per ton of carbon pollution. It's clearly only one step toward strong, science-based action on climate, but it is an important step.
