The Social Cost of Carbon estimates the monetary damages
that result from carbon pollution – essentially putting a value on the effects of climate change that are already costing us today.
The Obama Administration requires agencies to factor in these damages when making new policies. After careful scientific analysis, the current estimate was increased to $37 per ton of carbon pollution. But Big Oil and Big Coal oppose this increase, attempting to reduce the social cost of carbon so that they can continue polluting recklessly.
Help us stand up for a future where the cost of carbon pollution on our health, our livelihoods, and our children is taken into account. Add your signature now.
