Maine Communities for Climate Solutions!

The science is clear, the costs of inaction are growing, and 11,000 scientists have declared a global climate emergency.

Over 3,500 US economists recommend cash-back carbon pricing as the cheapest and fairest way to rapidly reduce climate pollution.

You can be a part of creating the political will to make it happen by helping your town vote for effective climate action in 2021!

Please help get a warrant article added to your next Town Meeting.

New! The article would allow your town to endorse national cash-back carbon pricing for the purpose of significantly reducing carbon pollution while compensating American households with monthly dividend checks. The article would also specify that if it passes, the town will let our state and federal elected officials know. You and your fellow townspeople will thus have a voice in national policy!

No town meeting? Work with your town or city to get their endorsement of a climate resolution.

This will enable voters of your town to endorse this effective family and business-friendly climate legislation.
