What’s Hot on the Climate Front

OCA sponsoring I-732 events in early August

Promoting the CarbonWA carbon-tax initiative to bring clean energy to WA

OCA is sponsoring several events centered around the effort to enact a revenue-neutral tax swap which will tax “bads” (fossil fuels) instead of “goods” (sales, business activities, and working families):
  • July 30, 1:05 PM:  KONP Radio 1450’s (and FM 101.7) Todd Ortloff will interview Yoram Bauman about climate change, pricing carbon, and the I-732 CarbonWA initiative.
  • Aug. 2, 6:30-8:30:  “Climate Change–It’s No Joke:  An Evening of Fun, Fossil-Fuel Fungibility, and Fundraising with Yoram Bauman.”  Yoram (yur-AHM), the world’s only stand-up Ph.D. economist and principal author of I-732, will explain in a light-hearted way why economics is so basically funny and why I-732 is so important to our future and our community.  Refreshments, socializing, Q&A, signature-gatherer signups, and unabashed fundraising will also roll out.  Elwha Klallam Heritage Center.  Doors open at 6:30 for refreshments and socializing, then Yoram will step up to the plate at 7–and we don’t mean the dessert plate!  Poster
  • Aug. 3, 12-1:  Yoram will speak to the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce on “Why a Carbon Tax Will Be Good for Our Community:  Let Us Count the Ways.”  Red Lion Hotel, upstairs banquet room.  Lunch $15, drinks-only $3.
