Sitka, Alaska (KINY) A local advocacy group wants the Sitka Assembly to set a good example for others.
The Sitka chapter of a climate advocacy organization has asked for the city's support in combating the effects of climate change. The group calls for a carbon fee on fossil fuels and other greenhouse gases at the point of production or port of entry into the US. They also ask that fees collected would then go to households across the country on a monthly basis. The third would discourage business from relocating to a country that doesn't have these carbon fees.
A report in the Sitka Sentinel said The Citizens Climate Lobby asked the Assembly to adopt a resolution that supports their program. This resolution will be submitted to the Alaska congressional delegation in the next two months.
