A new UN report released this month warns of the serious and irreversible consequences of global warming if we do not enact “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.”
A crucial policy that will, according to the world’s leading climate scientists, drive the move towards a low-carbon economy and help us reduce emissions, is putting a price on carbon pollution. Doing so captures externalities from emissions the public pays for in other ways –– including property damage from floods, healthcare costs, and economic losses.
Climate XChange* is a Boston-based organization aiming to tackle global warming by researching and advocating for such a policy in states across in the U.S. In order to fundraise for this mission, they are raffling off three brand new Teslas on New Years Day! This is one of the coolest raffles of its kind, and the odds of winning are pretty amazing, too.
