What we're about

We exist to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.
https://citizensclimatelobby.org/

Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.

In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community.

The Basics of Carbon Fee and Dividend

• Place a steadily rising fee on fossil fuels

• Give 100% of the fees minus administrative costs back to households each month.

• Use a border adjustment to stop business relocation.

A study from REMI https://citizensclimatelobby.org/remi-report/ shows that carbon fee-and-dividend will:

• reduce CO2 emissions 52% below 1990 levels in 20 years

• add 2.8 million jobs to the economy

• focus business planning on optimizing investment priorities

• prevent over 230,000 premature deaths over 20 years from improved air quality

Carbon Fee and Dividend does

• NOT increase the size of government,

• NOT require new bureaucracies, or

• NOT directly increase government revenues.

Finally, Carbon Fee and Dividend is elegant in its simplicity, transparent in its accessibility to public scrutiny and clear in its signals and benefits.

Climate Skeptic Movie "Climate Hustle" (with Rebuttal)

WeWork 135 E 57th St

For our first few events, we'll be meeting in Manhattan, but eventually, our events will be in Brooklyn. We'll do a viewing of the 2016 climate skeptic movie "Climate Hustle" with nationally famous climate skeptic journalist Marc Morano. The movie is chock-full of scientific arguments about why global warming is not real, and we will be stopping the movie every few minutes to explain why what they just said was not true. As an environmentalist who is already concerned about climate change, you really should come to the event -- hearing the climate skeptic arguments, and their rebuttals, is an informative tour of climate science. How are you going to be prepared to debate climate skeptics if you don't know what they're going to say? You should watch this video of climate skeptic Ted Cruz demolishing Sierra Club president Aaron Mair, who must've seen Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth", but who had evidently made it to the top of the Sierra Club without ever having had a conversation with a climate skeptic in his life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl9-tY1oZNw&t=7s Please RSVP. We need to have the name on your photo ID to give the security guards so they'll let you in the building.
