Help Texas Fight Climate Change
If you live in Texas you know that global warming is already costing us – droughts, heat waves, increased fire activity, water shortages and more.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is mobilizing Texans to take action to stop climate change, protect our people and help Texas’ economy make a smooth transition to clean energy.
Our market-based carbon fee and dividend type policy, The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, would create jobs, support small businesses and families, and reduce emissions — all without burdensome EPA regulations or growing the government.
Citizens’ Climate has chapters across the state from El Paso to San Antonio to Denton working with our Senators and Congresspeople to help them act on climate and protect our economy.
About Citizens’ Climate Lobby
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization which supports the power of the people rather than asking people to give power to headquarters.
We are laser focused both on a specific piece of legislation and a proven strategy to gain its passage. Our plan, The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, is the one climate change solution economists and climate scientists alike say is the fastest mechanism to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

CCL needs your help fighting climate change in Texas
We have groups across the state working now to preserve a livable future and protect Texas and all of America from climate change.
You can join one of our existing groups or if there is none in your area we can support you in starting one.
We especially need new groups outside of the major metro areas.

What others are saying about CCL
"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 HansenClimate scientist and former head of the NASA Goddard Institute
"With all the negative news on climate and Congress it's understandable to feel discouraged. But hopelessness is not a strategy for making a difference and neither is acting alone. Citizens' Climate Lobby is the antidote, the missing link, the Harvard of citizen activism."Sam Daley-HarrisFounder, RESULTS, Microcredit Summit Campaign, and the Center for Citizen Empowerment and Transformation
"The Citizens' Climate Lobby has identified the issue of pricing carbon as a vitally important lever in promoting dialog and action on climate protection. If you've been looking for that one group to join, you can stop looking now."Dr. Daniel Kammen Professor - University of California, Berkeley
"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 HayhoeAtmospheric Scientist and Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University
"CCL teems with enthusiasm and excitement in the search for solutions on climate change. Its positive spirit is its DNA. I'm grateful for the thousands who are devoted to the cause and open to free enterprise answers to climate change."Bob InglisFormer Republican Congressman and Executive Director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative
"I support what Citizens' Climate Lobby is doing and I support your Carbon Fee and Dividend solution. It’s interesting to see a grassroots organization who’s actually doing something. I’m glad to be on Citizens' Climate Lobby's advisory panel."George ShultzFormer Secretary of State under President Reagan and chair of the Hoover Institution’s Shultz-Stephenson Task Force
