Project Report:
Our Children's Trust: Atmospheric Trust Campaign
Purpose
- Explores and develops market-based solutions.

Summary

We support a network of youth, scientists, economists and experts from multiple disciplines, to bring about macro governmental action at the federal, state, local and global domestic levels that drives systemic market incentives and public policy to place our society on a scientific prescription for atmospheric health, climate stability and ocean de-acidification.

Purpose

We advocate for market approaches that promote a sustainable economy and for economic rebalancing relating to climate change, energy security, food production and other environmental matters.

Economic imbalances that favor carbon intensive goods and services and perpetuate environmental degradation continue to dominate our economy. Our work secures legal requirements that will drive economic, market-based and governmental policy solutions to realign those imbalances and result in the stabilization of our climate system and de-acidification of our oceans.

We seek a court ordered systemic, national, science-based climate recovery plan that would include: realignment of tax incentives/subsidies away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy; establishment of a carbon fee system reflecting the honest pricing of carbon; allocation of R&D funding toward innovation to develop market readiness and economic viability of new and existing climate stabilizing technologies; etc.

Scope

The scope of our work is global. We are advancing legal actions on behalf of all present and future generations to achieve systemic government policy at the federal, state, local and global domestic levels. Our media work is similarly focused at all of these levels. Because climate change is simultaneously a global and local issue, governmental action and policy at all levels of government is crucial to achieve a meaningful solution to the climate and ocean acidification crises. We are driving that science-based governmental climate recovery action and policy by securing legal rights (constitutional and public trust) that mandate such action and policy at the governmental level.
