States Announce Coalition To Pass Local Carbon Pricing

The article shows that some states will not sit idly by while Trump ignores climate change. Lawmakers from nine states announced on Wednesday that they would be forming a coalition to help pass carbon pricing at the local level, citing the importance of state-level policies in the face of federal inaction on climate. Only California now has a law to restrict carbon from being dumped into the atmosphere. However, legislators from the nine participating states — New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington are planning to create such a law.
