“Optimism is a political act. Those who benefit from the status quo are perfectly happy with a large population of people who think nothing is going to get any better. In fact, these days, cynicism is obedience. What’s really radical is being willing to look right at the magnitude and difficulty of the problems we face and still insist that we can solve these problems.” – Alex Steffen https://citizensclimatelobby.org/sam-daley-harris-speaks-to-the-power-of-grassroots-advocacy/ #climatesolutions #grassrootsclimate #citizensclimatelobby #texttojoin

Last week I sent in a letter to the editor of the Tampa Bay Times in response to an editorial they ran on August 4 regarding the effects of climate change in the State of Florida. My letter was published today! If you are not familiar with the Bipartisan Bill known as the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, please visit the link my bio and read up about the Bill and the amazing work being done by the men and women of Citizens Climate Lobby to get this Bill passed. If passed, this Act will ensure that American citizens are compensated while they make the transition from carbon fuels to cleaner energy sources. If you have ever felt powerless over the effects of climate change, there is something you can do right now. Visit the link in my bio and endorse the Bill and/or write a letter to your state representative expressing your support for the Bill. Our representatives want to secure their re-election and that means listening to what their constituents want. If you’re interested in getting involved with Citizens Climate Lobby here in Pinellas County, please reach out to me or visit Citizens Climate Lobby-Pinellas County Chapter on Facebook and send us a message! If you are not in Pinellas or not Florida, please visit the CCL website to get connected with a chapter in your area/state. Your voice is powerful. Use it! 💚🌎♻️ . . . #grassrootsclimate #citizensclimatelobby #climatechange #climateadvocacy #globalwarming #energyinnovation #cleanenergy #politicalwill #climatechangeawareness #bipartisan #tampabay #tampabaytimes #florida #stpetersburgfl #pinellascounty #clearwaterflorida

You are invited to the annual Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) Great Lakes Regional Conference! This year it’s being held in our great state of Indiana! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-citizens-climate-lobby-great-lakes-conference-registration-64317195463 Scholarships are available. Please contact us at cclindianapolis @gmail.com for more information about the event or scholarships! CCL builds the political will for our elected representatives to take action on climate change. And with an effective, bipartisan climate bill introduced in Congress right now, that political will is more important than ever! Our Regional Conference is an opportunity for newcomers and longtime CCL members to gather to learn, practice skills, inspire each other, and strategize in moving our country toward climate solutions. The Great Lakes Region - Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin - is large and diverse, but we share common concerns due to the climate impacts already manifesting in our wildlands, cities and farms. #GrassrootsClimate #climate #climatechange #carbondividends #putapriceonit #cleanenergy #carbonfree #renewableenergy #renewable #priceoncarbon #priceonpollution #bipartisanclimate

“We’re hurting,” says Harriet Festing. “After this year’s record-breaking flooding in the Midwest, we agreed that the time to speak up and go national is now.”⠀ ⠀ Harriet is convening local flood survivor groups and amplifying their voices in an initiative called the United Flooded States of America. More than 30 community and regional leaders from 15 states are working together on this national campaign. The group wants lawmakers from the local to the federal level to take action “to stop development in wetlands and floodplains, reform flood insurance laws, and reduce human-caused greenhouse gases that cause global warming.”⠀ ⠀ #GrassrootsClimate ⠀ https://buff.ly/2MCB4P9

“Whether you believe the science or not, I have to ask what have we got to lose by cutting carbon emissions? Side effects include less pollution, better air quality and health, and jobs created by innovation. What are we waiting for?” Volunteers of Citizens’ Climate Lobby write letters to the editor, op-eds, articles and blogs to educate about climate change solutions. This one was published in the @greenvillenews.

Is it wrong that I bamboozled my husband into a #datenight to a @climaterealitysc meeting 🤣 Well, it included great beer at @brewery85 and an interesting talk from @greenville_technical_college economist Dr Jermaine Whirl about how tackling climate change is a necessity for attracting businesses to the upstate and boosting our economy. So what are we waiting for y’all? Let’s do this! 🌎💪🏻💚

TBT to my last meeting with the Alexandria Chapter. Joining Citizens Climate Lobby has given me the platform and confidence when it comes to raising my voice on issues that I find important. You can make a difference! I know I did. Our Chapter came out in our blue CCL shirts to the Arlington Board Meeting where they agreed to set the 2050 Community Energy Plan to Net Zero! After the meeting WE were told that just our presence made a HUGE impact on the final decision.......just by showing up?! Joining CCL also means long-lasting friendships and memories of some serious fun times. I will forever be thankful for the connections and experiences I have had in this life-changing group. Maybe I'll start a chapter in Thailand❤✌🌏✌❤ Interested in joing a chapter in your area?

Day 2 of the #YouthClimateSummit : . 1. The indigenous panel reminding us that “Reclaiming indigenous identity is your right. We were raised with the belief that water is a part of us.” . 2. Meeting more CCLers and connecting with more environmental advocates. . . 3. Met the wonderful Nathan Phillips from the Omaha Nation. I feel the same: “I’m afraid for tomorrow but I have to overcome that fear...” . . 4. The fact that I’m with my daughter and it’s our first climate conference together. I have no words! . . 5. Still getting people registered and interested in @ccl_teens. Glad to be able to help our action team get more members. . 6. @gretathunberg is an inspiration! Thank you for using your voice and speaking out. . . #thisiszerohour #miami #grassrootsclimate

Thanks @repcharliecrist (FL-13) for cosponsoring the #EnergyInnovationAct !. . “Congress must act with the urgency the climate crisis demands. Nowhere is this more clear than in Florida where rising sea levels are impacting our communities,” said Congressman Crist. . “Our bipartisan bill takes historic steps toward reducing carbon dependency – key to addressing the climate crisis – while using the revenue generated to cut a monthly check to every American. A win-win solution!” . #PriceOnPollution #UnitedStates #4thOfJuly #CCLFlorida #CitizensClimate #Florida #GrassrootsClimate

Thanks @repteddeutch (FL-22) for sponsoring the #EnergyInnovationAct !. . "Climate change is an urgent threat that demands urgent bipartisan action. With this legislation, we are making clear to our colleagues that bipartisanship is possible – even necessary – to address climate change in this Congress," said Congressman Deutch. . "Our plan, to put a price on carbon and return the net revenue back to the American people, offers our Democratic and Republican colleagues an effective approach to significantly reduce carbon emissions without shifting the burden to the American people." . #PriceOnPollution #UnitedStates #4thOfJuly #CCLFlorida #CitizensClimate #Florida #GrassrootsClimate

Welcome to our new #CCLFlorida Insta Page! . We are excited to share news regarding our efforts to continue to advocate for a livable world by informing everyone about the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, H.R. 763 (of which Florida has 5 cosponsors)! . The bill we support is: . Effective This policy will reduce America’s emissions by at least 40% in the first 12 years. . Good for People This policy will improve health and save lives. Additionally, the carbon dividend puts money directly into people’s pockets every month to spend as they see fit, helping low and middle income Americans. . Good for the economy This policy will create 2.1 million new jobs, thanks to economic growth in local communities across America. . Bipartisan Republicans and Democrats are both on board, cosponsoring this bill together. The majority of Americans support Congress taking action on climate change, including more than half of Republicans. Solving climate change is too urgent to get caught up in partisan politics.

Pictures and video from #ccldc. There were 25 volunteers from Tennessee. The most ever and every district was represented! More than 1300 cclers from across the country and around the world had 529 meetings to ask congress to support H.R. 763 and to make climate a bridge and not a wedge issue. Thank you to staffers in the congressional offices for taking the time to meet with us! #grassrootsclimate #priceonpollution
