Hello carbon tax friends: Terrific news this week!
* Endorsement of CarbonWA from Seattle Business magazine: We can’t say it any better than Seattle Business magazine editor Leslie Helm in the September issue: “A carbon tax works — and the state should implement one.” I strongly encourage everyone to read the entire piece, to be generous in printing copies for friends and sharing the link online, and to stay tuned for a link to another article about carbon pricing in the same issue. It’s not yet online, so while you’re waiting how about taking advantage of their offer of a free subscription to the magazine? (Capitalism is amazing, isn’t it? Perhaps they make money from advertising; you can ask them on Twitter and Facebook… but mostly you should give them some love for their strong endorsement of revenue-neutral carbon taxes and CarbonWA.)
* Campaign social recap: We had a terrific event Wednesday night at the Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar and will be doing follow-up in the week ahead. Keep an eye out for photos on our on Facebook page and Twitter feed!
* How you can help #1: You can pledge to collect signatures in March-Dec 2015 so we can get on the ballot in November 2016!
* How you can help #2: You can donate to the campaign, especially now that we’ve set it up so that you can donate a given amount every month. (Thanks to Will and Joanne for encouraging us to do this!) Donate $100 or more and I’ll send you a free copy of The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change. (I’m also giving my royalties for this year to the campaign, and sorry I ran out of copies on Wednesday night!)
* How you can help #3: You can provide feedback on the comments section of this blog and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We are approaching our summer goals for Facebook friends and Twitter followers, but we’re not there yet…
* How you can help #4: You can link to and print out the Seattle Business magazine editorial endorsing CarbonWA (or sign up for a free subscription and then rip out the page) and share copies with everyone you know in person and online!
