This month's national call
Every month, usually on the first Saturday of the month, Citizens Climate Lobby holds a national conference call to connect hundreds of volunteers from our chapters across the U.S. and Canada. Listen to our guest speakers to learn more about the issues, hear about actions our groups are taking, and find out what actions you can take to generate the political will for effective climate legislation.
NEXT NATIONAL CONFERENCE CALL, Saturday, May 4, 1 p.m. EST, 10 a.m. PST
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, climate champion
Nearly every week, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) goes to the floor of the Senate to speak about climate change and the urgent need for congressional action. Earlier this year he organized the Bicameral Climate Change Task Force, which meets regularly to discuss national climate policy. Along with three other members of Congress, Whitehouse authored a carbon tax discussion draft seeking public comment. We'll talk to him about the discussion draft and the potential for legislation in this Congress.
