Climate change

A Winchester area chapter of a bipartisan national climate change group, Citizens Climate Lobby, held an organizing meeting May 23. Members are from the northern Shenandoah Valley region, including Front Royal, Winchester and surrounding counties.

Citizens Climate Lobby has over 600 chapters nationally. The group supports legislation that uses a market-based approach to the climate crisis. The measure, called the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, puts an increasing fee on the carbon content of fossil fuels, at the source, with the money collected going to residential utility ratepayers in the form of monthly dividend checks. The measure, called the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, has 80 bipartisan cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives.
