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:
