Bozeman Citizens Climate Lobby

Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) is a national grassroots organization dedicated to creating the political will in Congress to address climate change. CCL has chosen to effect policy in a way that will reach every corner of industry, every corner of our lives, and even beyond the borders of our country: a revenue neutral carbon fee and dividend. Their philosophy is non-partisan and non-confrontational, realizing that everyone needs to be on board to make this a reality.

There's a GREAT piece about Citizens Climate Lobby that's been posted online on the NY Times' Web site if you want to know more:

National Conference Call at 7:30:

Guest speaker is Sam Gomberg, Union of Concerned Scientists

How will a carbon tax affect farmers? This is the question often asked by members of Congress who have agricultural constituents. On the August call, joining us to shed some light on this topic is Sam Gomberg, an energy analyst at the Midwest office of the Union of Concerned Scientists. He advocates for responsible energy policies that support the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency resources, and that result in significant reductions of global warming emissions. Before joining UCS, Sam was a policy manager for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE).
