About CCL

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.

In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to engage elected officials, the media and the public.

What we do...

We lobby in support of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal by building friendly relationships with our federally elected representatives. We do so with respect, appreciation and gratitude for their service.

 We write letters to the editor and op-eds, and meet with editorial boards to gain their editorial endorsement.

 We facilitate presentations and table at events to promote CCL and introduce others to our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal.

 We support our volunteer chapters with monthly conference calls, and we support the leaders of those chapters with weekly conference calls.

What we believe...

Politicians don’t create political will, they respond to it. We believe citizens who are well-trained, organized by Congressional district and with a good system of support can more than influence the political process.

In respect for all viewpoints, even for those who would oppose us. 

Based on what climate scientists and economists tell us, we believe that Carbon Fee and Dividend is the best first step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to mitigate the impacts of a changing climate.



Marshall Saunders

Marshall Saunders“After I had given just a few talks about the climate, I realized that the actions I was suggesting to my listeners to take, while essential, were not a match for the problem. I realized that anything they intended to do would be swamped by what the government did or did not do. I realized that ordinary people like me would have to organize, educate ourselves, give up our hopelessness and powerlessness, and gain the skills to be effective with our government.”

My name is Marshall Saunders and I live in Coronado, CA.  My professional career was real estate brokerage specializing in shopping center development and leasing.

When I became alarmed about the changing climate in 2006, I began giving talks about global warming to service clubs, high schools, universities, and whoever else would listen. However, at the end of each talk I felt that the solutions I offered were not a match for the problem.

I realized that anything my listeners intended to do as individuals was totally swamped by public policy, by what the government did or didn’t do.

While I suggested ways for people to reduce their use of carbon, Congress extended a law that gave $18 billion in subsidies to oil and coal companies.

It seemed to me that Congress was doing things exactly backwards.  Why?  Because it is dominated by special interests, in this case the fossil fuel industry.  In my heart I knew something else was at play: Ordinary people were not asking their members of Congress for anything regarding climate change, not in an organized and effective way. Furthermore, they didn’t know what to do or how to do it, nor did they have self-confidence and support they needed. Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s purpose is to change all that by empowering individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power and by gaining the tools to be effective with government.

And how did I know anything about that? I’ve been lobbying Congress as a volunteer with RESULTS for 17 years.  RESULTS creates the political will for the end of hunger and poverty. I saw that people who are concerned about the climate, needed that same training. I couldn’t find a place where people could go to learn it, so on October 7th, 2007, I started Citizens’ Climate Lobby.  Now in November of 2014, Citizens’ Climate Lobby has about 212 lobby teams throughout the USA and Canada and one in Sweden.

I invite you to listen to one of our Introductory Calls, which take place each Wednesday at 5:00 PM Pacific, 8:00 PM Eastern.  The Introductory Call is the first step.  I believe Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a powerful way for us to create the political will for a livable world.

Listen to our Introductory Call

CCL’s Advisory Board

George Shultz

George ShultzGeorge P. Shultz is a former Secretary of state and is currently chair of the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy.  In recent years, Shultz has been a strong advocate of policies to address climate change, saying that even if members of his party are skeptical about climate science, it behooves us to take out an “insurance policy”. Along with Nobel Laureate Gary Becker, he co-authored an op-ed that appeared in the Wall Street Journal in 2013, “Why We Support a Revenue-Neutral Carbon Tax”

He has had a distinguished career in government, academia, and the world of business. He is one of only two individuals who have held four different federal cabinet posts; he has taught at three of this country’s great universities; and for eight years he was president of a major engineering and construction company.

He taught at MIT before serving as a senior economist on President Eisenhower’s Council of Economic Advisers, going on to the University of Chicago and Stanford University afterwards. He returned to government as Secretary of labor under President Nixon in 1969. In June 1970, he became the first director of the newly formed Office of Management and Budget. In May 1972, he was named Secretary of the Treasury, a post he held for two years. During this period, Shultz also served as chairman of the Council on Economic Policy, negotiated a series of trade protocols with the Soviet Union, and represented the United States at the Tokyo meeting on the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.

He served as president and director of the Bechtel group from 1974-1982, then returned to public service in the Reagan administration, holding two key positions: chair of the President’s Economic Policy Advisory Board and Secretary of State (1982-1989).  As Secretary of State, he played a key role leading to the successful conclusion of the Cold War and the strengthening of relationships between the United States and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region including China, Japan, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. He helped negotiate the Montreal Protocol to phase out ozone-destroying chemicals, widely hailed as the most successful international treaty in history.

Dr. James Hansen

James HansenDr. James Hansen, formerly Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, is Adjunct Professor at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, where he directs a program in Climate Science, Awareness and Solutions.

He was trained in physics and astronomy in the space science program of Dr. James Van Allen at the University of Iowa. His early research on the clouds of Venus helped identify their composition as sulfuric acid. Since the late 1970s, he has focused his research on Earth’s climate, especially human-made climate change. Dr. Hansen is best known for his testimony on climate change to congressional committees in the 1980s that helped raise broad awareness of the global warming issue.

Dr. Hansen was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1995 and was designated by Time Magazine in 2006 as one of the 100 most influential people on Earth. He has received numerous awards including the Carl-Gustaf Rossby and Roger Revelle Research Medals, the Sophie Prize and the Blue Planet Prize.

Most recently, Cheadle participated in the multi-part SHOWTIME series Years of Living Dangerously which tells the story of our time: climate change and the impact it is having on people right now around the world.

He attended and graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a Bachelor¹s Degree in Fine Arts. Encouraged by his college friends, he participated in a variety of auditions and landed a recurring role on the hit series Fame (1982), which led to feature film roles in Dennis Hopper’s Colors (1988) and John Irvin’s Hamburger Hill (1987). Early in his career, Cheadle was named Best Supporting Actor by the Los Angeles Film Critics for his breakout performance opposite Denzel Washington in Devil in a Blue Dress (1995). He has gone on to a variety of roles in both movies and television that have received awards and nominations for his acting roles. A talented musician who plays an array of instruments, writes music and sings, he is also an accomplished stage actor and director and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004 for Best Spoken Word Album for his narration/dramatization of the Walter Mosley novel “Fear Itself”.

Last year Cheadle directed his first feature, Miles Ahead, which he also cowrote, produced and stars in the film, based on the life of legendary jazz artist, Miles Davis. Currently, he stars, executive produces and occasionally directs the acclaimed SHOWTIME comedy series House of Lies, which has earned multiple nominations for the series and Cheadle himself, including three Emmy Nominations, a Golden Globe® Award, and two Golden Globe® nominations and SAG Award nomination.

Sam Daley-Harris

Sam Daley Harris

Sam Daley-Harris founded RESULTS, an international citizens’ lobby dedicated to creating the political will to end poverty in 1980, the Microcredit Summit Campaign in 1995, and in 2012 Daley-Harris founded the Center for Citizen Empowerment and Transformation to help organizations more deeply engage their supporters and create champions in Congress and the media for their cause.

The Microcredit Summit Campaign surpassed its initial goal of reaching 100 million of the world’s poorest families with microloans in 2007.   It was that same year that Daley-Harris began coaching Citizens’ Climate Lobby founder Marshall Saunders prior to the launch of  Citizens’ Climate Lobby.

Daley-Harris is author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break between People and Government, about which Jimmy Carter said, “[Daley-Harris] provides a road map for global involvement in planning a better future.”  The 20th anniversary edition was released in 2013.

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus said: “….no other organization has been as critical a partner in seeing to it that microcredit is used as a tool to eradicate poverty and empower women than RESULTS and the Microcredit Summit Campaign.” And Ashoka founder Bill Drayton wrote, “Sam Daley-Harris is one of the certified great social entrepreneurs of the last decades.  After building RESULTS, he is the person more than anyone else who has brought microcredit into focus across the world and precipitated action.”

Mr. Daley-Harris has degrees in music, played percussion instruments in the Miami Philharmonic, and is a songwriter.  He lives in Princeton, NJ with his wife, The Rev. Shannon Daley-Harris, and their children, Micah and Sophie.
