Statement Welcoming Bipartisan Climate Legislation

May 7, 2021
WASHINGTON, DC – Climate Leadership Council CEO Greg Bertelsen issued the following statement welcoming the introduction of the Market Choice Act of 2021:

“Putting a price on carbon is the single most powerful tool for unleashing clean energy innovation across the economy and positioning the United States to be the world leader in developing low-carbon technologies. Momentum is building on both sides of the aisle for this commonsense and effective policy, and the Climate Leadership Council looks forward to doing its part to advance a market-based solution that is pro-environment, pro-economy, and pro-American family.”

 The Climate Leadership Council works with a diverse coalition of businesses, environmental, and opinion leaders whose purpose is to advance the four-part carbon dividends framework as the most cost-effective, equitable, and politically viable climate solution.
