Are you one of three Americans now directly affected by an extreme climate change event? Are you ready to act on solving climate change?

In 2019, I joined Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL), one of many effective organizations providing evidence-based solutions toward success. Since 2007, CCL continues to build a grassroots nonpartisan coalition of over 200,000 members in more than 560 chapters around the world promoting the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act’s cash-back carbon pricing legislation “in a relentless, unstoppable, yet friendly and respectful way” (CCL Founder, Marshall Saunders). Carbon pricing is the fastest and most effective lever to decarbonize the planet.

Who supports carbon pricing? Listing a few: leading climate scientists, economists (including 28 Nobel Laureates), mayors, businesses, all living “ex” and current Federal Reserve chairs. Nearly 75% of Americans support taxing corporations for their emissions with 75% of Republicans under 40 wanting our government to limit carbon pollution with collected carbon price money given as a monthly cash payment to citizens. So, please join the likes of U.S. Senators Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, and ordinary citizens like me to call for carbon pricing legislation!
