To the Editor:

Tis the season!

We welcome peace and joy!

Last Friday evening, I joined many celebrants with a cheerful "Festival of Lights" with our community sing-along, lighting our community tree enjoying a variety of music performers, laser show, and delicious dining and treats all around! It was a notably warm evening for December in temperature too! Not likely a "White Christmas" this year and years to come with ever-increasing global warming.

However, there is much beginning to happen in remediating climate change. Please thank Rep. Kathy Manning who (among her many legislative contributions) on Dec. 7 co-sponsored H.R. 2307 — The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EICDA) of 2021! EICDA will help reduce America's carbon pollution to net-zero by 2050 putting a fee on carbon pollution which incentivizes clean energy innovation. The money collected from fossil fuel companies goes to Americans in the form of a monthly "carbon cashback" payment to help everyone afford the transition. Yes, Kathy Manning, you made my holiday!

I am rejoicing your support of cashback carbon pricing policy along with my family, friends, honeybees, and Mother Nature! We wish you and yours the joy and many blessings this festive season brings!
