Climate Tax with Mark Reynolds of Citizen Climate Lobby

Today on the podcast we have Mark Reynolds, from Citizen Climate Lobby, to share with us the importance of a Carbon Tax in order to save the planet. In this conversation, you’ll learn along with me as we talk all about why a Carbon Tax is the goal, how to get involved, and more. 

Mark shares how to come to a place of common ground with conflict of any type, which truly is the key to conflict resolution. His program, which picked him in a way, is a great volunteer opportunity, and I was actually involved in it a few years ago.
