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


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 100% of the net 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 HansenDr. James HansenClimate scientist and former head of the NASA Goddard Institute
  • "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 HayhoeDr. Katharine HayhoeAtmospheric Scientist and Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University
  • One day, ideally in the not-too-distant future, when Congress finally passes major legislation to curb carbon emissions — to reduce the environmental and economic harm caused by climate change — Americans will owe a big thank you to the perseverance and discipline of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
    David BornsteinDavid BornsteinWriter, NYT and Co-founder Solutions Journalism Network
  • "The Citizens’ Climate Lobby is an exceptional group that is pursuing an amazingly productive, substantive way to engage with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle."

    Lee ZeldinLee ZeldinCongressman (R-NY)
  • "They [CCL] come in and they say this is a problem that we have and we’re wondering if you can help us solve this problem — instead of you’re the problem. It not only changed my mind about my involvement, but really changed my heart about what we should be doing."

    Mia LoveMia LoveCongresswoman (R-UT)
