Discussions of climate change focus on the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, and finding ways to reduce what humans release. 

But if you're going to tax or charge for carbon emissions, how much?  And how should the money be used? 

Those issues will be discussed this weekend at a Medford event, "The Two Billion Dollar Question."

The organization Oregon Climate set up the event. 

Executive Director Camila Thorndike joins us with details.
