About Our Chapter

We work to build the political will to solve climate change problems. Our main focus is the bipartisan, national, carbon pricing legislation, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, which we are convinced is an effective and long-lasting way to fight climate change.  We talk with neighbors, friends, community leaders, and elected officials about how national and state climate action can ensure a healthy future and strengthen the American economy. We build all our relationships from a place of respect and appreciation.  We are steadfastly nonpartisan.

The February meeting of the Columbia County chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby will take place this Monday, February 11, 6-8pm, at Christ Episcopal Church on Union Street in Hudson (corner of 4th Street, across from the post office). We encourage first-time folks to come to a brief orientation at 5:30. (RSVP’s help us know how many people to expect so we can set the room up properly: moc.l1550631297iamg@1550631297ffokh1550631297sirfe1550631297curb1550631297).

This month, we’ll be sharing:

  • Our own climate change stories

  • Different ways each of us can take action on climate

  • A couple of great recent newspaper articles about us and our work

  • Upcoming events, including our big musical fundraiser at spencertown Academy

  • Our Northeast Regional Conference in Troy next month (you can commute!)

  • Part of the CCL national monthly call, this month featuring Dr, Natasha DeJarnett, research coordinator at the National Environmental Health Association, speaking about climate change, air pollution, and environmental health exposures. (We heard her at a conference two years ago, and she is first rate.)

  • And, of course, our carbon fee and dividend bill in the House, H.763, he Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act!

Meetings are a good way to build working community; come join the work for a solution to carbon pollution on Monday evening!


The world is heating up; come join our work to make a change! For more information, contact Karen Frishkoff: 518-672-7901 (moc.l1550631297iamg@1550631297ffokh1550631297sirfk1550631297)
