This month our congresswoman, Doris Matsui, joined 44 members of the House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition to commend President Barack Obama for his recently announced Climate Action Plan. I am proud to be a constituent of Matsui's and am grateful for her leadership in addressing climate change.
The political reality in Congress demands a climate change solution acceptable to conservatives. Luckily there is one -- a revenue-neutral carbon tax, collected at the well, mine, or port of entry with the proceeds returned to all households in the form of a yearly dividend check. It can reduce emissions and unleash the clean energy economy, while limiting the size of government.
