Hello folks,

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend our open forum in Seattle yesterday. I enjoyed meeting you all, and there is a lot we can do together moving forward. For folks unable to make the meeting, we will have another in the coming month. more

Hello carbon tax enthusiasts,

I am Claire Meints, recently hired on as CarbonWA’s first staff member. I will be focused on the campaign to pass our ballot measure in November of 2014. I am quite excited to kickstart this campaign with you and with the events below and a request for your feedback on this survey. more

Hello carbon tax friends:

  • Claire Meints (who is working on and for CarbonWA this summer, starting yesterday!) has suggested a couple of possible times for an in-person meeting in Seattle, location TBD. If you’d like to participate, please email me with your preferences and constraints for one or both of the following options: Thursday 6/20 at 6:00pm or Saturday 6/22 at 3:00pm. Stay tuned for more!
  • For inspiration, I recommend reading this NYT article on Citizens Climate Lobby. CCL has four active chapters in Washington State (Bainbridge, Port Orchard, Seattle, Whidbey) and continues to do great work with Congressional representatives, newspapers, &c in pushing for a federal carbon tax.
