Take Action to Solve the Climate Crisis: Dr. James Hansen, climate scientist: "Most impressive is the work of the Citizens' Climate Lobby, a relatively new, fastgrowing, nonpartisan, nonprofit group with [250+] chapters across the United States and Canada. If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group." Citizens' Climate Lobby is committed to two purposes: (1) to create the political will for a stable and sustainable climate and (2) to empower individuals to have a breakthrough in exercising their personal and political power.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to engage elected officials, the media and the public.
If you want to do something concrete for climate change, this is the BEST volunteer organization I have ever worked with! It's non partisan (all political persuasions welcomed) and presents a solution to climate change. The support and training provided by the Citizens' Climate Lobby staff is first class, and I have worked at some of the best companies in the world! We write letters to congress and newspapers, do outreach, and meet with our legislators. If you want to play a part in our Democracy while contributing to solving the biggest problem facing our generation, then please join.
Citizens' Climate Lobby has a wonderfully tight focus on addressing climate change through federal legislation. They do not let other issues get in the way. They encourage involvement from a broad range of people - conservative/liberal; democrat/republican/libertarian/independent; any faith or no faith. They train well on how to communicate with your elected members of congress through letters and face-to-face. They empower individuals and encourage people to take action.

Unlike the other two reviewers, I found it incredibly easy to interact with the contact and establish my involvement with the organization. When I first made contact with them, they directed me to a very informative conference call which is designed to help one decide whether or not involvement within the organization is for you. I have been working with them for a few months now, and everyone i have come into contact with has been kind, polite, and very pleasant to interact with. Not only that, but everyone is committed to the cause and take on a refreshing approach to solve the many challenges faced. If you are interested in the cause, I would highly recommend involvement in the organization.
