Save the Date: January 29, 11:30 am
Speaker: Jim Lazar, Olympia Chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL). (https://citizensclimatelobby.org/)
Jim will be presenting the basics of the CCL federal-level proposal for carbon “fee and dividend” legislation, which would impose a fee on the emission of carbon dioxide pollution, and rebate 100% of the proceeds to the public in the form of periodic direct payments. The idea is to make products and services that cause carbon pollution more expensive, but not to use this as a form of taxation for additional governmental expenditures.
Jim Lazar is recently retired from a global career in electric utility regulation, including pricing, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. He is the author of four books and numerous booklets on electricity. Jim moved to Olympia in 1977 to work for the state legislature and formed a consulting practice in the 1980s that took him to North and South America, Asia, Africa, Europe, and the South Pacific. Jim is also a former Thurston County Public Utility District Commissioner.
Please join us at OUUC, 2315 Division Street NW, Olympia. Sunday service ends at about 11:00 am, followed by refreshments. Jim will start his presentation at 11:30 on January 29.
