Carbon Pricing 101
Global warming is the existential challenge of our time, threatening lives, livelihoods and the future of the planet. To avoid the worst impacts and preserve a livable planet for future generations, we need to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Carbon pricing is a proven and effective way to help us meet that goal.

Here’s a guide to your rights depending on how you pay
Cincinnati Eastern Bypass, Ohio
Ohio and Kentucky transportation officials are considering a new four-lane bypass around the eastern side of Cincinnati that would cause sprawling development and damaging community impacts, while overwhelming Ohio’s state transportation budget. The proposed Cincinnati Eastern Bypass (CEB) would entail approximately 75 miles of new freeway.
Cleveland Opportunity Corridor, Ohio
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is promoting a $331 million, three-mile, five-lane road construction project starting at I-490’s terminus south of the city’s downtown and running northeast to the University Circle neighborhood. But it’s hard to see what need it would be meeting. The number of miles driven in and around Cleveland has been stagnant for more than a decade. And though project proponents have tried to package the project as an “opportunity corridor” that would help the disadvantaged neighborhoods the road would traverse, the communities that would supposedly benefit have other priorities. Part of the neighborhood would also have to be destroyed to make room for the road.
A healthy climate is key to a healthy and safe future for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren.
