US Sky Trust
The Mission of the US Sky Trust is to preserve the atmosphere through a public interest trust. The US Sky Trust will petition the US government for the rights to issue permits to polluters for the release of Carbon Dioxide. The revenue from these permits will be distributed equally to the citizens of the United States. Permits will be issued upstream to corporations who bring carbon-releasing fuel into the economy. The US Sky Trust is further described at www.skyowners.org.
The founder of the US Sky Trust is Peter Barnes, co-founder of Working Assets. The CEO of the US Sky Trust, is Adam Werbach, former President of the Sierra Club.
