PDA has focused on Stopping Global Warming since our founding in 2004. No issue reveals more clearly the flaws of the U.S. political-economic system than global warming. Greed and corporate power dominate the public good, and impose nearsighted focus on short term profits instead of serving our long-term needs and the welfare of future generations.
Reliance on limited, increasingly expensive and environmentally damaging carbon-based energy is causing irreparable harm. Mountain-top coal mining, toxic hydro-fracturing (fracking), oil shale mining, oil sands exploitation, and similar extraction, transportation, refining and other processes impose unacceptable risks. Burning carbon-based fuels causes rising sea levels, melting glaciers, more violent storms, and drought. The public strongly supports decisive action to save the planet from climate change, and to protect wilderness from further degradation.
PDA calls on the Congress to dramatically reduce our country’s use of fossil fuels by placing a price on carbon that reflects its true costs to society through a Carbon Tax, returning the revenue to American households to offset the increase in prices. This would promote investments in public transportation, energy conservation, and alternative energy development to help the U.S. transition to a new green economy and create good jobs.
