Carbon pricing is a market-based solution to carbon pollution that will lower emissions while energizing the economy.  At Green Drinks, we will be outlining the evolution of our coalition, summarizing our partnerships throughout the state, highlighting our progress in the Rhode Island legislature thus far, and sharing our vision for a clean energy future.
