Carbon regulations approved by Congress
A successful carbon strategy must get the support of the majority, without crushing the minority.
With their vote, people can promote green legislation favoring the unfettered scaling up of the green economy undercutting fossil fuels, such as:
-Building permits for green ventures, such as building permits for wind turbines, nuclear plants or mining metals for batteries;
-Allow reselling electricity from solar panels to the grid;
-Energy-efficiency standards to involve everyone;
-Subsidies for funding green-tech;
-Carbon pricing to erase the price advantage of fossil fuels.
Such political support would need to overcome a few obstacles:
-Pressure for climate change action is ranking low, but has been climbing in the past few years;
-Inequalities motivate angry voters to elect anti-establishment representatives either leaning towards socialism in the name of climate urgency or instead dismissing climate action.
Easier said than done? It must be done!
