Support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act
Don Cheadle
"Climate change is scary and urgent, so I’m really glad to see Congress proposing solutions."
Don Cheadle - Actor
Rep. John Delaney
"Climate change is a very significant threat to our prosperity and to our national security. Enduring things in this country happen when there is broad bipartisan support. If you look back across this country's history, whenever we have dealt with a really big challenge, we've done it together. Most Americans understand that this is a very significant issue. Democrats, Republicans, Independents -- they want us to work together to solve it in a big way, which is what this bill does."
Rep. John Delaney - Presidential Candidate and Former U.S. Representative (D-MD-06)
Jessie Diggins
"You can look at different solutions for the economy, but you only get one earth to live on, and you have to breathe the air that is on this earth. We have to do it in a way that doesn’t hurt families economically, which is why I’m supporting the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, because it puts a fee on carbon and returns the revenue to households."
Jessie Diggins - 2018 Olympic Gold Medalist, U.S. Cross Country Skier
James Hansen
"Unbelievable. With 100,000 supporters across the country, we now have a climate bill that serves the people by cutting carbon emissions and putting money in people's pockets. Climate change is incredibly urgent and serious, as I warned Congress when I first testified about global warming in 1988. This bill gives us the chance to fight it seriously and on a big scale. I encourage everyone to support the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act."

Katharine Hayhoe
"As a scientist, I am in favour of any legislation that will reduce carbon emissions and has broad-based support. I am delighted that the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act has been introduced to the House of Representatives as it is an ambitious plan to reduce carbon emissions with bipartisan support across the U.S. political spectrum."
Katharine Hayhoe - Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University
Alex Honnold
"The Energy Innovation Act is the best possible solution for addressing climate change in our country right now."

George P. Shultz
"The urgency to reduce emissions is now painfully obvious. I fully support the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Its predictability mitigates price uncertainty, and its full dividend return makes it politically durable---both essential to markets investing in the next great industrial revolution. This bill prices carbon in an efficient, effective and equitable way that will enhance our national security, help level the playing field in world trade, and redeem America’s leadership role, all without growing the size of the government."
George P. Shultz - Former US State and Treasury Secretary
Bradley Whitford
"This is a big deal- we finally have a bipartisan bill in the House that puts a price on carbon."
Bradley Whitford - Actor
