CCL's Review Of Select Committee Climate Report

Average Rating:

After a yearlong process, the majority staff of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis released its report on June 30th. The report was a substantial 547 pages long and covered many topics, including carbon pricing.

CCL staffer Jerry Hinkle and CCL volunteer David Kline dug into the report and prepared the following summary, which will be helpful to CCL volunteers in interpreting the report and using its findings. It is important to note that the report represents the work of the Democrats on the committee and is not a bipartisan consensus.

Check out the CCL summary in the attached document, and if you have additional questions, feel free to ask in this forum thread.

The broad objectives and delineation of strategy are fine, as far as they go. However, I cannot be much more than discouraged at the short shrift given to carbon pricing, and the emphasis on large government directed investment that will be very hard to come by in a post Covid (or ongoing Covid) economic environment.
