LASER TALK: Big Oil in the USA Wants a Carbon Price

BP, ExxonMobil, and Shell are the founding corporate members of the Climate Leadership Council (CLC). The CLC is a policy institute that is actively lobbying Congress in the US to pass legislation for immediate implementation of a $40 per tonne carbon fee that would be applied to fossil fuels that rises predictably. What industry wants and indeed requires for long-term business planning is clarity of purpose as to the future direction of climate policies.

The distinguished authors of the CLC Carbon Dividends Plan are James A. Baker, III, and George P. Shultz.  Both are distinguished statesmen under Republican presidents.
