We had a nice bike ride to the CCL Indianapolis monthly meeting and vegetarian potluck this evening! At CCL we’re focused on advocating for national policies to address climate change, specifically the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. But we’re also aware of the collective impact of our personal actions on the environment. Biking or walking instead of driving (when feasible) and eating a plant-rich diet are two of the many ways we can make a difference. . . Drawdown Solution #59 . Buildings and Cities – Bike Infrastructure . IMPACT: In 2014, 5.5 percent of urban trips around the world were completed by bicycle. In some cities, bicycle mode share was over 20 percent. Assuming a rise from 5.5 percent to 7.5 percent of urban trips globally by 2050, we would displace 2.2 trillion passenger-miles traveled by conventional modes of transportation and avoid 2.3 gigatons of carbon dioxide emissions. By building bike infrastructure rather than roads, municipal governments, and taxpayers can realize $400 billion in savings over thirty years and $2.1 trillion in lifetime savings. . https://www.drawdown.org/solutions/buildings-and-cities/bike-infrastructure . . Drawdown Solution #4 . Food – Plant-Rich Diet . IMPACT: If 50 percent of the world’s population restricts their diet to a healthy 2,500 calories per day and reduces meat consumption overall, an estimated 26.7 gigatons of emissions could be avoided from dietary change alone. If avoided deforestation from land use change is included, an additional 39.3 gigatons of emissions could be avoided, making healthy, plant-rich diets one of the most impactful solutions at a total of 66 gigatons reduced. . https://www.drawdown.org/solutions/food/plant-rich-diet . #GrassrootsClimate #climate #climatechange #carbondividends #putapriceonit #cleanenergy #carbonfree #renewableenergy #renewable #priceoncarbon #priceonpollution #bipartisanclimate

Members of the Greenville chapter of @citizensclimate listen to the monthly national call with guest speaker @carloslcurbelo. He said about combating climate change: “We need a healthy compromise that is bipartisan and durable... We will win this cause by convincing people not diminishing them.”

My little dude coloring in a picture of earth to send to @reptimmons to ask him to protect the planet and support the bipartisan Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act which is in the house right now! The proposed legislation would put a fee on carbon at the source and distribute the money to American households monthly as a dividend! It is the one climate change solution conservative economists and climate scientists alike say is the “best first-step” to preventing the worst impacts of a warming world. Tell your elected officials about it too!

The Idaho and Eastern Washington Citizens’ Climate Lobby Conference “Bridging the Climate Divide” was a success. The co-leaders of the Palouse Chapter of CCL, Mary DuPree and Judy Meuth, and many other CCL members, did an outstanding job putting this conference together. I met some wonderful people and listened to informative speakers. Personally I do worry how climate change will impact our health. I want clean air to breath. I believe the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763) will be a step in the right direction to help reduce America’s carbon emissions. I also want to preserve the beauty of our country which gives me peace and keeps me sane every time I get to explore all that it has to offer. #grassrootsclimate @citizensclimate #cleanair #americathebeautiful @senpattymurray @senatormariacantwell

Seventeen members of our chapter got together for our March meeting to discuss the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. We are asking @drphilroe to become a sponsor of this bill. It is effective, good for people, good for the economy, bipartisan, and revenue neutral. #grassrootsclimate
