Hickenlooper in New Hampshire


[Hickenlooper] said that beyond putting a price on carbon and giving the American people a dividend from the tax revenue, reducing “fugitive emissions” — which include methane and other greenhouse gases released as byproducts of industrial production — would be something he could repeat from his time as mayor and governor.

Galvanizing support around curbing emissions, Hickenlooper argued, involves not only keeping the public satisfied with the dividend amid increased costs, but also giving some credit to fossil fuel companies for their part.
