8 new Co-sponsors in the house for the Energy Innovation Act since Lobby day. Why? A %40 carbon reduction in 12 years, revenue neutral, free market, household dividend, 2.1 million jobs created, border adjustment, common sense, aggressive action for the climate #grassrootsclimate #saveourplanet #hr763 #ccl2019

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Pope Franics is in support of carbon pricing as a way to combat global warming! Like our community, the Pope believes in clear-standardised science based and above all else, TRANSPARENT reporting on climate risk. He also wants to hold companies responsible for their apathy surrounding climate responsibility and protocol. What a mensch! Thank you for putting your belief in change that can start NOW! #climatechangeisreal #ccl2019 #carbonpricing #popeisdope #grassrootsclimate #thefutureisnow

Over the past week I was in Washington D.C. to discuss Climate Change with Congress in regards to HR763 the Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividen Act...which was Introduced in the House back in January..... 🌍 For someone who cares a lot of about the environment what I have learned is that in order to make change happen, politics do have a crucial impact on making change possible..... 🌎 I got to attend a conference with @citizensclimate on Climate Change & the impact this made in my life was significant & very necessary. Lobbying in D.C. was a great experience & if it has anything to do with protecting this planet I am all about it..... 🌏 “Be the change you want to see”..... ☀️☀️☀️☀️ #CCL2019 #climatechange #districtofcolombia #congress #nature #planet #motherearth #climate #carbon #hr763 #globalwarming

Had an incredible and empowering conference and lobby day with 1500+ volunteers this past Tuesday working towards establishing bipartisan climate legislation. It was so great to meet with other Tennessee youth and our representatives to discuss the issue. I want to thank @repcohen from Memphis for co-sponsoring HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act; this action on your part gives us a lot of hope for the future! #grassrootsclimate #CCL2019

Looks like a girl but she is a flame. 😋 mission accomplished, what a great conference. There is still hope we just need to keep pushing the right buttons and support action in every corner. Here I am in front of the office of the first voice in Congress that represents me, that looks like me, that loves dancing like me, that is as fierce as I want to be. Just a year older and she is making so big moves, definitely a force to reckon with. Underestimated but we will not be contained. However the work is on us, we need to make a change because is the right thing to do. As a scientist, as an islander, as a woman of color, as a Latina, as a human it is my responsibility to act on climate and I want everyone to have a voice on how we get to a better future. . . . . . . . . . . #ccl2019 #international #togetehrwerise #elquecontaminapaga #actonclimate #climate #optoutside #phdlife #scientistonthego #passionpassport #instapassport #washingtondc #science #actuallivingscientist #globetrotter #citizenoftheworld #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #BBCtravel #visualsoflife #photooftheday #gogetter #goaldigger #powerfulwoman #fulloflife #aoc #stayandwander #wekeepmoments

Dino came with us to the meeting with Representative Foster’s staff! I know I’ve been posting nonstop this weekend, but let me tell you a little more about CCL! We’re a bipartisan organization focused on getting the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act passed. The Energy Innovation Act will put a fee on carbon at the source, and that money will be given as a dividend check to every American. You’d receive a check in the mail each month to offset the rising cost of goods, while encouraging businesses and consumers alike to choose clean energy. But best off all it’ll reduce emissions by 40% in the first 12 years and will beat goals set by the Paris Accord. It’s effective, good for the economy, good for people, bipartisan and revenue neutral! We’re working to make climate a bridge issue instead of a wedge issue!!! #ccl2019 #grassrootsclimate #climateaction #velociraptorsforclimateaction #ccl #carbonfeeanddividend

Great to meet with @repgilcisneros and Chief of Staff Nic Jordan to talk bipartisan #climate action via the Energy Innovation Act and its potential as a jobs catalyst for CA39. Together we hope to realize a vision as beautiful as these paintings of the earth made by schoolchildren during our recent #ccl Sustainable Living Fair at Brea Congregational Church. #ccl2019
