This cartoon shows how your climate-income, your increased costs (due to a pollution-busting carbon price on the things that you buy) and your emissions would change over time* if a climate-income policy (also called carbon fee and dividend) was adopted by the UK government. Most household's gain more than they lose—especially low-income households—and this policy gets us 80% of the way to net-zero in 2050!

Climate income—the 80% solution that leaves no-one behind.

* The carbon-cost, climate-income and emission-reductions shown here are approximate. Changing the assumptions of the economic model changes the specific results a little but not the broad picture of a single policy that benefits the least well-off and cuts emissions.
