Planning to dine out in California? It could cost you a bit more thanks to climate change.
A coalition of public and private entities launched a statewide initiative on Wednesday asking restaurants to tack a small fee onto patron's bills, which would go towards a program to channel carbon from the air into the soil.
The Restore California Renewable Restaurants group wants the 1 percent surcharge sent to the California Air Resources Board, who would implement the plans.
According to CBS Sacramento, not everyone is onboard with the idea. Organizers hope to have 200 establishments signed up by the end of the year.
Would you pay 1% more on your bill to fight climate change? Is there a better way to go about saving the planet?
