Our Solution

Citizen Engagement

Governments will respond to the will of the people provided we tell them what we want. And what we want is a livable world.

This is what Citizens’ Climate Lobby works for. To empower citizens to connect with and influence their members of Congress. To spread the idea that each one of us can address climate change.

Working together we can make this happen.

Carbon Fee and Dividend

By building constructive, working relationships with members of Congress we seek passage of Carbon Fee and Dividend, a climate change solution that bridges the partisan divide.

Carbon Fee and Dividend, a revenue-neutral carbon tax with all revenue returned directly to households, will reduce greenhouse gas emissions 52% below 1990 levels within 20 years while growing the economy and saving lives.

What Others Are Saying

  • "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
  • "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."

    Sam Daley-HarrisFounder, RESULTS, Microcredit Summit Campaign, and the Center for Citizen Empowerment and Transformation
  • "I support what Citizens' Climate Lobby is doing and I support your Carbon Fee and Dividend solution.  It’s interesting to see a grassroots organization who’s actually doing something. I’m glad to be on Citizens' Climate Lobby's advisory panel."

    George ShultzFormer Secretary of State under President Reagan and chair of the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force
  • "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 CCL is so important. It gives the ordinary citizen a voice to tell our elected leaders we want a real price on carbon."

    Dr. Katharine HayhoeAtmospheric Scientist and Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University
  • "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
  • "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
