I’m excited to share with you the latest video in our climate conversation series, The Price of Carbon. This short video, narrated by comedian and musician Reggie Watts, underscores the high cost we are all already paying for carbon pollution.
From Superstorm Sandy to soaring temperatures in Australia, ongoing drought that has parched more than 60 percent of the U.S., and flooding from hurricanes around the world, we are experiencing the consequences of our carbon pollution now. We are paying the cost of these dirty weather disasters and other climate impacts through taxes, medical bills and insurance rates (to name just a few). It’s past time to talk about the real cost of carbon pollution and to take action so that the polluters are paying their fair share.
In the spirit of moving forward to solve the climate crisis, it’s time to jump-start a real carbon conversation.
