Fee & Dividend verses Cap and Trade

Cap and Trade

Cap and Trade is a complicated scheme that contains a myriad of loopholes. It is clear to those that have examined the Cap and Trade scheme, that it will not provide meaningful greenhouse gas reductions that will prevent severe economic stress in the near and coming future.

Fee & Dividend

Fee & Dividend is a simple mechanism that is designed in such a way as to provide a means for greenhouse gas emissions to be reduced in a progressive manner and return dividends to the people. This actually indicates two distinct advantages.

  1. The progressive price increase on the fee provides incentive to move into renewable and sustainable energy technologies.
  2. The return of the dividend acts as an economic stimulus for the people.

Advantages

Returning the dividend to the people means everyone benefits from the program. We are all paying for the costs of the program and we all benefit form the dividend. In the mean time, energy companies have incentive to make progress on reducing future costs for everyone.

It truly is a win/win scenario when the short and long term benefits are weighed.

The best policy for GHG emission reduction.

Unfortunately our site was hacked in early 2013. The hacker was able to get inside and erase the database of signatures. Nevertheless, we still need a progressive tax and dividend approach to help us transition the global economy to a more sustainable future.
