Join Citizens Climate Lobby and tell the congresscritters to do their jobs!

Our Purposes
To create the political will for a stable climate.
To empower individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power



Editorial Packet: "For many Americans, Sandy is the 'Pearl Harbor moment' on climate change. Now that we know where the bombs are coming from, it’s time for Congress to declare war on carbon."

See our Q&A with Rutgers climate scientist Jennifer Francis.

CCL press release: "Frankenstorm" the latest warning to address climate change.

SAVE THE DATES! CCL's 2013 International Conference in Washington, June 23-25


Plan on joining us this summer when activists from across the U.S. and Canada gather for CCL's 4th annual conference. Details and registration to come. 

Our 2012 conference was attended by 175 volunteers who held 303 meetings on Capitol Hill. Read a report on the 2012 conference here.

NEXT NATIONAL CONFERENCE CALL, Saturday, Jan. 5, 1 p.m. EST, 10 a.m. PST

Guest speaker: Dr. Robb Willer, Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Sciences, UC Berkeley

Dr. Willer is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Psychology at UC, Berkeley, where is currently a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. A previous guest on CCL conference calls, he was co-author of “Apocalypse soon? Dire messages reduce belief in global warming by contradicting just-world beliefs.” In a forthcoming paper, he examines the differences in moral views between Republicans and Democrats on big issues such as climate change and how understanding these differences is key to the messaging that resonates with various groups.

At Citizens Climate Lobby, we believe that our national policy on climate change should be a match for the science. Toward that end, we offer the following legislation that will achieve the critical goals needed to avert catastrophic climate change. We believe this legislation can achieve these goals while at the same time shielding Americans from the financial impact of transitioning to a clean-energy economy. Our volunteers are bringing this proposal to their members of Congress. If you would like to take our legislation to your member of Congress, please get in touch and we'll be happy to support your efforts. Write to us
