The Flagstaff Sustainability Commission will be voting tonight on whether or not to support a carbon tax resolution being lobbied for by the Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
This resolution would have the City of Flagstaff put their support behind a federal bill taxing fossil fuel industries and taking that money and distributing it to every American citizen. The goal is to manipulate the market in favor of cleaner energy.
The Flagstaff City Council will be taking up this resolution at their February 2nd meeting.
Also on tonight’s Sustainability Commission agenda are discussions on major changes to Flagstaff’s Earth Day celebration and an update on changes to the animal keeping part of the City Code.
