“I’m thrilled that New York is doing this and this makes clear that a state can go in this direction because in California we get a lot of pushback,” said Sen. Scott Wiener, who represents San Francisco. “It’s a fight here every time and it’s great that New York state is getting ahead of us and I hope this creates momentum in California.” @Scott_Wiener ⠀ ⠀ Such legislation would pair nicely with a national #PriceOnPollution. ⠀ https://buff.ly/2M2zOVY

Luntz told the Senate panel, “I’m here before you to say that I was wrong in 2001.” The reality of climate change is increasingly too hard to ignore. “The courageous firefighters of L.A., they saved my home, but others aren’t so lucky,” he said as he recounted the tale during a Senate testimony on Thursday. “Rising sea levels, melting ice caps, tornadoes, and hurricanes more ferocious than ever. It is happening.”⠀ ⠀ #BipartisanClimate #PriceOnPollution ⠀ https://buff.ly/30UUvq9

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

It was a busy night for #TeamBarron (and the mosquitoes), out full force in Eden Mills! We talked largely about our Liberal Governments focus on protecting the environment while growing the economy. This is an issue of great importance to the people of Eden Mills and for many across the riding. Climate Change is a serious threat to our security as Canadians but so is crippling poverty and economic inequality. We need to continue with a centrist approach to both issues so we can cement a healthy future for our children while letting families today stay ahead of economic realities. Here are just a few of the Liberal Governments achievements over the past four years that show a real commitment to combating the climate crisis. ✅Putting a price on pollution ✅Phasing out coal ✅Reducing plastics in our oceans ✅Investing in cleaner transit ✅Conserving green spaces ✅Making zero-emission cars more affordable #EdenMills #ClimateChange #Enviroment #GuelphEramosa #Eramosa #Rockwood #PriceOnPollution

Congratulations, New York, on passing the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act late last month!⠀ ⠀ This law requires NY "to slash its planet-warming pollution 85 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, and offset the remaining 15 percent, possibly through measures to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere."⠀ ⠀ One of the ways to achieve such ambitious emissions reductions is through putting a #PriceOnPollution. ⠀ https://buff.ly/31G3zAy

Wow! The #bipartisan , revenue-neutral carbon price -- for which we've been advocating for a decade -- is listed on https://buff.ly/GFkpO5 as one of the top five polices from last week's Democratic Presidential debate.⠀ ⠀ "Environmental dividends. Several candidates were asked how they’d persuade Congress and the public to accept carbon taxes and other climate-change measures that are costly or inconvenient in the short term. Some said they would build in rewards and incentives. “All the economists agree that a carbon pricing mechanism works,” said Delaney, but “you can’t put a price on carbon, raise energy prices, and not give the money back to the American people.”⠀ ⠀ #PriceOnPollution

Ever wonder what it’s like to meet with members of Congress? Watch these citizen lobbyists talk about their experience in D.C. last month! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They walked into Capitol Hill and told Congress, face to face, how important the climate issue is. They invited lawmakers to cosponsor the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. They made their voices heard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can make your voice heard right now by visiting cclusa.org/write or cclusa.org/call to look up your members of Congress and reach out to them about climate change and the big solutions we need, like a #PriceOnPollution. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #climatechange #climate #globalwarming #bipartisan #lobbying #democracy #priceonpollution #students #youthforclimate #studentactivism

Visiting Cleveland, it’s hard to imagine how a city could have tried harder to armor itself against the economic and political forces that pulled many other rustbelt cities apart. Here, there and everywhere is evidence of initiatives started by people trying very hard to do the right thing. On a strip of park space across from the otherwise denuded Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, there’s a plaque honoring the leaders of a now-defucnt “CLEAN-land” trash reduction initiative, that at one time reduced litter on train tracks and roadsides. On the transit map is a stop called “Lorraine/ Eco-Village.” When you visit the stop, you can see the fingerprints of the beautiful idea behind the stop’s name-- the idea that an ecological focus could re-center a challenged community. Though it’s hard to find someone on the street that knows WHY it’s called the “Eco Village”, you can see that the idea did prevent dissolution... Fourteen years after the concept was initiated, the “eco” components are a partially hidden by overgrowth, but they are still there. Several ecologically sensible, affordable housing projects dot the neighborhood. There’s a wonderful park with a splash pad, filled with kids on a hot day. The pollinator garden had grown tall and the flowers in it are about to burst forth, rangy and wild-- just the way pollinators like it. If you hop the train, and travel to the central transit station, though—it’s hard not to feel that the main thing missing in Cleveland is people. The station feels robust enough to be in New York or Boston, but midday on a week day, it’s empty. Compared to the crowding on transit in Toronto where we’d spend the prior week, the absence of users for all this sustainable infrastructure was stark. Numbers bear this situation out-- population in the City of Cleveland declined from over 500,000 residents in 1990 to 380,000 last year, and by 57% since the city’s peak population in the 1950s. If Cleveland has done so much right, why did everyone leave? You could say it was the weather-- but then you look at Toronto or Chicago, where the weather is arguably just as bad. >> (ct’d in comments)

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

So excited to see our new Citizens’ Climate Lobby - Florida ( @cclflorida ) page! It’s time to work together on #climatesolutions !. . Posted @withrepost @cclflorida 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.

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. .
