“If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you can take than to become an active member of this group.”
We exist to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. Today, we have over 200,000 supporters worldwide.
Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and helping our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.
Our proposal is to establish national legislation to implement Carbon Fee and Dividend. A national, revenue-neutral carbon fee-and-dividend system (CF&D) would place a predictable, steadily rising price on the carbon in fossil fuels, with all fees collected minus administrative costs returned to households as a monthly energy dividend.
In just 20 years, studies show, such a system could reduce carbon emissions to 50% of 1990 levels while adding 2.8 million jobs to the American economy.
In 2023, CCL added three additional policy prescriptions that could extend the impact of carbon pricing. Those include healthy forests, building electrification and efficiency, and clean energy permitting reform.
