A bipartisan Pricing Carbon bill that was introduced in the House of Representative on Tuesday has been in the works for one Door County environmental advocate and author the past twenty years.  Roger Kuhns, a geologist from Door County, is a member of the grassroots Citizen’s Climate Lobby group that is responsible for getting the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act crafted.  Kuhns says the organization helped to form the bipartisan caucus to get the bill introduced.  He explains the impact of the bill if approved.



The money would be returned to every household in America on an equal basis to cover the cost the transformation from a fossil fuel to a renewable energy economy, according to Kuhns.  He says the bill is unlikely to pass in the current Lame Duck Congress but would be re-introduced when the 116th Congress session starts next year.
