CCL is a non-profit, non-partisan international organization with 72,000 members worldwide that focuses on empowering and educating citizens to engage respectfully with their legislators on the issue of climate change as well as pushing for a bipartisan solution on the federal level. A big part of their outreach is reaching out to people with differing views to help bridge the partisan divide on the issue of climate by finding common ground between us. They work towards keeping a respectful bipartisan dialogue that is supported by a bipartisan advisory board that includes conservatives, liberals, scientists, and military. Their proposed solution is called Carbon Fee & Dividend and has been adopted in various forms by four countries around the world, including Canada recently. It is a revenue-neutral, market-based, national alternative to regulations and the most effective, least intrusive, and government-free solution possible that will put more money back into the pockets of low to middle income households while growing our economy, jobs, and GDP. Top economists say it is the best and easiest way to fix a carbon market failure and incentivize producers and consumers to lower their consumption while not regulating how they do this. Come out and learn how you can engage positively with your legislators and others on a climate solution that has the most viability of getting passed sooner than later.
