CCL exists to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power. -- Mission Statement

Ladies and Gentlemen,
We now have our bills in both houses of Congress!
'Twas the season of miracles!

Just as the climate news has become more alarming and governments struggle or fail to act, viable and effective bipartisan carbon fee and dividend bills have been introduced into both chambers of Congress. Almost exactly CCL's, we plan an all out effort when reintroduced in the next session. Learn more to build momentum.

  1. Effective
  2. Good for People
  3. Good for the Economy
  4. Bipartisan
  5. Revenue Neutral

Thanks to these Members of Congress:
New to CCL? Please join us at the following events. Let us know you're coming so we can personally welcome you.

Speaking of national emergencies:

Trump could pave way for a 'national emergency' on climate change
More Republicans Than You Think Support Action on Climate Change

The author of this article recently gave a great talk at the Environmental Forum of Marin

Oh, Canada!
Watch the masterful rollout of Canada's carbon tax plan. Pay attention to the framing -- his use of language, imagery, and values. (You can also brush up on your rusty French.)

"After two years of presenting himself on the world stage as a climate champion, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada has put his money where his mouth is. Mr. Trudeau has pledged that all of Canada will have a price on carbon dioxide pollution by 2019. Mr. Trudeau’s plan would impose a tax of about $15 per ton of carbon dioxide on industrial polluters, rising to about $38 by 2022. Most of the revenue would be returned to citizens in the form of rebates."

(Sounds familiar, eh?)

They're doing great work at the school board level making climate change a children's issue. But the politics are thick.
