Chapter 6, "Putting a Price on Carbon," was written by Silicon Valley North CCL volunteer Robert Mullins. He explains CCL's lobbying approach, carbon fee and dividend, the bipartisan appeal of the policy, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, and the Climate Solutions Caucus.

Here's an excerpt about the founding of CCL:


To counter the energy industry’s hold on Congress and the government in general, Saunders encouraged citizens to develop their skills in creating legislative proposals to combat global warming and learn how to lobby Congress to get them enacted. After all, the government is not just “of the people” but is also supposed to be “by the people, for the people”; if we demand it, they should provide it.


Climate Abandoned is available on Amazon.
