Keep America Beautiful 

midwest farm with truck driving byClimate change threatens our legacy to our children.

 

We’ve been blessed with a powerful country, rich with natural resources. Our children deserve to inherit a land that is beautiful, not one that is burned out, blasted and depleted.

 

It’s time to change the energy that we use to power our economy, for a healthier, cleaner, safer America.   

Power forward

Our modern lives wouldn’t be possible without fossil fuels. But emissions from fossil fuels are harming our climate, our health, and our livelihoods. It’s time to transition  to clean energy sources, in a way that powers America forward rather than dragging it backwards. Businesses can lead this transition and thrive. Conservatives support solutions in Congress right now that are:

 

  1. Effective – driving down America’s emissions at the level we need to address climate change
  2. Market-driven – business and industry will lead the way
  3. Job creators – stable, well-paid jobs in every district across America

Republicans in Congress – Ready to Lead With Climate Solutions

Conservative Republicans are hearing from their constituents about the impacts of climate change. They are ready to lead with conservative solutions.

  • I didn't come to Congress to argue with a thermometer... The science of global warming is irrefutable.

    Rep. Matt GaetzRep. Matt GaetzR-FL-1
  • The climate is changing, and we, collectively, have a responsibility to do something about it.

    Sen. John BarrassoSen. John BarrassoR-WY
  • I'm a Republican who believes the greenhouse gas effect is real, that climate change is being affected by manmade behavior.

    Sen. Lindsey GrahamSen. Lindsey GrahamR-SC
  • There's no question that we’re experiencing climate change and that humans are a significant contributor.

    Sen. Mitt RomneySen. Mitt RomneyR-UT
  • I’m not afraid to talk about climate change. We’re obviously pumping more CO2 into the air, and there’s a thing called the greenhouse effect.

    Sen. Mike BraunSen. Mike BraunR-IN
  • There is a growing consensus the days of ignoring this issue are over.

    Sen. John CornynSen. John CornynR-TX

Meet Our Conservative Supporters

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a grassroots, nonpartisan organization. Our supporters are organized into local chapters, which reflect the character and politics of where they are located. Chapters work with their members of Congress to enact climate change solutions. Conservative CCL supporters hail from all over the country, but share conservative principles.  Meet Jacob.

Introducing a climate solution with conservative principles  

How it works: 

  1.  Fossil fuels are taxed at the source for every ton of CO2 they put into the air we all breathe. Energy companies can still do business. They just have to pay if they pollute the air. Because we all breathe it.
  2. The money collected gets split up and distributed to every American taxpayer, not to the government. You can use it to compensate for higher energy prices, or you can use it to invest in clean energy,
  3. With clean energy on an even playing field, the American free market gets kicked into an innovation frenzy to see who can create the cheapest, cleanest energy.
  4. America’s emissions go way down, which makes America cleaner and our loved ones safer and healthier.

Some pretty big hitters support the idea of putting a price on carbon, including 27 Nobel Prize Winning Economists all the living ex-federal reserve chairs, and over 3500 other economists across the country.
