Ask your government official to put a price on carbon

In order to include the cost of climate change in our economic accounting system, we need to put a price on carbon. This price can be imposed at the local, regional, national, or global level, so officials at all levels of government can contribute to this shift in accounting. Every state or region has different proposals for pricing carbon, so be sure to research your particular local initiatives before going to your lobby session. Most importantly, during your lobby visit emphasize why climate change matters to you and how pricing carbon will help to move us towards a more sustainable future. Here are some useful websites to increase the effectiveness of your lobbying: for climate activism: http://350.org/ for details on carbon pricing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_pricing for advocacy specifically focused on a carbon tax: http://www.carbontax.org/
