The Citizens Climate Lobby’s push for a carbon fee and dividend system to reduce climate change

Members of the organization Citizens Climate Lobby stopped by the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette offices to visit with our editorial board about their hopes for federal legislation to establish a fee and dividend structure to encourage the reduction of carbon-producing activities. Editorial page editor Greg Harton visited with two members in our Fayetteville podcast studios for the latest edition of “Speaking of Arkansas.”
