Western Maine CCL Chapter Leads






Here is the challenge - Practice explaining the concept of 'carbon fee & dividend' (CF&D) to another person. Depending upon your current comfort level, we're suggesting three possible levels for this challenge:


Level 1 challenge: Explain your involvement in CCL and your understanding of CF&D to a fellow CCL Western Maine Chapter member (click here for contact info for our currently active members; pick a practice buddy; set up a convenient time for the practice session; carry out the challenge; invite questions and feedback).


Level 2 challenge: Engage in the challenge with someone in your life who you know to be a supporter of climate solutions, but may not yet familiar with the basic elements of CF&D.


Level 3 challenge: Engage in the challenge with someone in your life who you suspect may be  not be a supporter of climate solutions. Your primary goal in this particular case is to begin a conversation, to make a connection, to ask questions, to actively listen, to find common ground, and to create an opening for ongoing discussion.


Given the fact that the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act is based squarely upon the concept of CF&D, this month's challenge will help prepare us for our May meeting, where we will further hone our skills and become ever more effective citizen-ambassadors of the EICDA.
