June 6 International Call

Danny RichterDanny Richter, CCL legislative director

What do we really know about people’s carbon footprints? What role does income and geography play? This is important to know, because the greater one’s carbon footprint, the more one will pay under a carbon-pricing regime, and elected officials want to know which of their constituents will be most affected. A new study from the Center for Global Development sheds light on these questions, and CCL’s Legislative Director Danny Richter will walk us through the study and its findings on the June call.

What Others Are Saying

  • As individuals, our choices control more than a third of U.S. carbon emissions. The rest is out of our control as individuals--but not as constituents. That’s why Citizen’s Climate Lobby is so important. It gives the ordinary citizen a voice to tell our elected leaders at the city, state, and national level that we care about climate change and we want a real price on carbon.

    Dr. Katharine HayhoeAtmospheric Scientist and Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University
  • "The Citizens' Climate Lobby has identified the issue of pricing carbon as a vitally important lever in promoting dialog and action on climate protection. If you've been looking for that one group to join, you can stop looking now."

    Dr. Daniel Kammen Professor - University of California, Berkeley
  • "CCL teams with enthusiasm and excitement in the search for solutions on climate change. Its positive spirit is its DNA. I'm grateful for the thousands who are devoted to the cause and open to free enterprise answers to climate change."
    Bob InglisFormer Republican Congressman and Executive Director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative
  • "Most impressive is the work of Citizens' Climate Lobby...If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group."

    Dr. James HansenClimate scientist and former head of the NASA Goddard Institute
  • "I support what you’re doing and believe in this. It’s interesting to see somebody who’s actually doing something. I’m glad to be on your advisory panel."
    George ShultzFormer Secretary of State under President Reagan and current chair of the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy
  • "With all the negative news on climate and Congress it's understandable to feel discouraged.  But hopelessness is not a strategy for making a difference and neither is acting alone.  Citizens' Climate Lobby is the antidote, the missing link, the Harvard of citizen activism."
