As the UN Climate Conference winds down in Paris, advocates for cutting the use of fossil fuels world-wide are still looking for action from the earth’s major polluters. Climate scientist James Hansen says: We’re not going to reduce emissions as long as we let fossil fuels be the cheapest form of energy. As long as fuels are dirt cheap, people will keep burning them. The Citizens Climate Lobby is a nation-wide organization that has a plan they say will fix the problem: a carbon tax or fee that would be returned to everyone as a dividend. Tony Ernst spoke with Tip Brolin, a local member of the group at his home in Water Mill last month.
