Conservative Case Carbon DividendsA climate strategy involving carbon dividends can strengthen our economy and reduce regulation while helping working-class Americans and promoting national security, say the authors of a February 2017 report published by the Climate Leadership Council.

Titled "The Conservative Case for Carbon Dividends," the report explains how a four-part carbon dividends plan can help to mitigate climate change while preserving conservative principles like free market and limited government.

Among the report's authors – eight men with collectively impressive business and political acumen – is Retired Walmart Chairman Rob Walton, who serves as co-chair of the Board of Directors of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global institute of Sustainability at ASU.
