Hello carbon tax friends: Three new developments as we round the home stretch of our push to 100,000 signatures by the end of July(more…)

Hello carbon tax friends: The big news this week is that we are entering the home stretch of our push to 100,000 signatures by the end of July! Saturday August 1st is the last day to postmark or otherwise turn in your July signature pages to your local coordinator, or bring them by the office (1914 N 34th St, Suite 407), or mail them to us (CarbonWA; PO Box 85565; Seattle WA 98145-1565); we’ll announce the totals next week so fill up your sheets this week and send them in! And if you want a contest to motivate you, CarbonWA’s Seattle staff is embarking on an 8-hour “Amazing Signature Race” mission on Friday July 31st; there are great prizes for the most signatures collected from 9-5 and you can participate no matter where you are in the state as long as you follow the two rules: no cars or mopeds allowed, and you must change location every hour. (You can also follow updates on Twitter: @CarbonWA.) (more…)

Hello carbon tax friends: We’re halfway through the year and at a turning point for the campaign, so in addition to reporting on the June totals I’d like to provide a mid-year review of the campaign. (more…)

Hello carbon tax friends: I hope you haven’t experienced the irony of “it’s too hot to gather signatures to fight climate change”… but regardless today is the last day to postmark or otherwise turn in your June signature pages. (We’ll have totals at the end of the week, and as detailed below you get an extra day thanks to the state legislature 🙂 Read on for signature-gathering opportunities on the 4th of July and beyond, thank you for helping us meet our $10k matching challenge (!), and please continue to pass our job posting around to high school or college students looking for a summer job working on carbon taxes(more…)
