Curbing carbon emissions, with Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon

Curbing carbon emissions, with Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon

Washington state pumps about 95 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year. That's more than twice the targeted volume for the year 2050, and we're behind schedule to meet that goal. Burien Democrat Joe Fitzgibbon chairs the House Environment Committee in Olympia, and he's introduced a bill to speed up the process by taxing carbon polluters at a rate of $15 a ton. We'll talk about his bill, and why it matters, in this edition of "Capitol Ideas."
