Youth Commission started this petition to San Jose City Council

As youths living in an age of accelerating climate change, it is our future that hangs in the balance. Rising temperatures will drastically impact our well-being, our jobs, and our environment as more and more people flock to the remaining habitable land. As corporations continue to unforgivingly pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, we are quickly reaching the point of no return. Rather than sit back and watch as our planet falls into ruin, we can use our signatures to help push for change.

Sign this petition to demand our City Council to support the bill HR 763, otherwise known as the Carbon Fee and Dividend. The bill will place a gradual carbon tax on corporations, which is predicted to reduce carbon emissions by 90% by 2050. This has profound implications for our environment: the decrease in carbon emissions will force the market to switch to renewables, saving our planet by fighting climate change. 

This bill is also revenue-neutral! Effectively, adults and children will get monthly checks from the revenue this bill will generate, meaning you will receive money if this bill is passed.

Sign the petition now and have your voice heard!
