Following is a metric that CarbonTax Workshop uses to evaluate (on a 1-10 scale) its own, and other, approaches for mobilizing public ambition.
- Effectively communicates the definition and rationale of a carbon tax in a positive, optimistic, and convincing manner
- Power to mobilize an individual citizen to either, (1) advocate a carbon tax to one member of congress, (2) cast a vote to replace a Congressional carbon denier, or (3) mobilize an additional individual
- Ability to reach a large number of individuals
