Climate Action

From Citizens Climate Lobby:

The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763) has been introduced into the House of Representatives and Citizens Climate Lobby is putting all of its efforts into getting this bill enacted into legislation. It has not yet been introduced into the Senate. We need both the House and Senate on board to put a market-based price on carbon emissions.

On June 11th, 1200 CCL volunteers who are attending CCL's June International Conference will be lobbying hundreds of Congressional offices in Washington, D.C. during CCL's Lobby Day.

On June 5th, CCL supporters will be lighting up the phones of every Congressional office prior to Lobby Day asking for support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. WE NEED YOUR HELP.
  1. On Wednesday, June 5th, go to: If you would like a text reminder to call June 5th, sign up at
  2. Enter your street address and zip code.
  3. Follow the instructions and use the suggested calling scripts to make your calls and report them to CCL.
  4. If you can't get through during the day on June 5th, call in the evening and leave a message, or call June 6th.
It's that easy and your calls do make a difference!
