I’m preparing for my kids to return to school. Do you know what keeps me up at night? What future awaits for my children. For all our children. Is it a world filled with one natural disaster after another? Food shortages, water shortages, deadly heat waves and mass migrations? I don’t want a world where they just survive, I want them to thrive. That’s why I’m striking for climate. #climatechange #climatestrike #fridayforfuture #putapriceonit #cleanair #cleanwater

We are so proud! Tallahassee youth activist and climate strike organizer Charlotte Stuart-Tilley has been featured on @nikkireed ’s Sunday post dedicated to raising awareness on the #climatecrisis. #Repost @nikkireed with @get_repost ・・・ Now back to our usual programming :) Once a week I dedicate my social media to a different student from our @yearsofliving #PutAPriceOnIt campaign to share a story that relates to carbon pricing. This Sunday's post comes from Charlotte Stuart-Tilley in Tallahassee, FL. Enjoy! “My name is Charlotte, and I'm a fellow in Florida with the organization Our Climate. I was a counselor at a kids' day camp recently (the camp focused on renewable energy and the climate crisis) and as an icebreaker, we asked each of them what their favorite part of nature was. Things like the ocean, birds, trees, turtles, deer, panthers, jungles, sunrises, and rocks were mentioned. The best part, however, is they all had at least several things to say. One kid threw their hands up and said 'All of it!'. Later, as they learned about global warming and pollution, there were audible gasps and questions like 'Then why are we still using fossil fuels?' or 'What can I do?'. As a climate activist, it made my heart happy to know that these kids appreciated the beauty around them, and more importantly, they wanted to protect it. I think that inside we are all like those kids. We may not show it, but there's something about nature that everyone appreciates and wants to protect. We just need to get back to that childlike feeling of wonder and willingness so we, the "grownups" and "big kids", will make global change and create a system that's sustainable. By putting a price on carbon pollution, we will reduce pollution and invest in clean energy to build that system.”

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

Hi guys happy Sunday! Once a week my social media is given to a different student from our @yearsofliving #PutAPriceOnIt campaign to talk carbon pricing. This Sunday's post comes from Ayessa Mae in New York. “My name is Ayessa Mae and I am one of the Our Climate fellows in New York State. Growing up in a country where clean air and a clean environment was not a priority has definitely shaped my passion for environmental advocacy today. After immigrating to New York, I realized that being able to live in a clean neighborhood is not only a privilege, but also a basic human right. This organizing has provided me a platform and the necessary resources I need to be a leader in climate action in my own community such as rallying, setting up advocacy workshops, and lobbying local elected officials.”

Last night in my new home that is Greensboro, two months of rain fell in four hours. My neighborhood was hit hard. I’d been out of town for the evening and upon returning was shocked to see many vehicles stranded in streets, one submerged, and one crashed into a building. I spent 45 minutes circling the city trying to find a route home that wasn’t blocked by police cars. I thought I might be wading in water once I’d parked, but fortunately my building is on the highest ground. I think many of my neighbors down the hill had their cars flooded. The green car is on the street parallel to the field, which contained a “lake” when I saw it, but the water must’ve climbed the hill and risen up to the windows on the vehicle (see the line?). Beyond the field the tennis courts and the bike path were all flooded. Beyond that, at the lowest ground, I saw the silver car. The police officer there told me the car had been completely submerged. By morning, all the water had receded. You could ask, is this normal? But the thing is, manmade greenhouse gas pollution has warmed the atmosphere, and a warmer atmosphere holds more water vapor. All storms become stronger as a result. This is a good reminder for me and anyone reading to contact your representatives and tell them to freaking DO something. #newnormal #loadeddice #flashflooding #climatechange #climateaction #globalwarming #thefutureisnow #putapriceonit #ifyourhouseisonfire #ifyoureinaholestopdigging #cleanenergy #readyfor100 #vote

Last Saturday my friend asked me, “Recently, we have more and more monkeys on the roads of Seremban. We’ve been cutting down trees to build more property, and that has chased the monkeys away to urban areas. What do you propose we do about it?” *** I was aware that habitat destruction and deforestation are major issues in Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo. I had seen the video of the orangutan tackling the bulldozer and the countless acres of palm trees, stretching to the horizon, that welcome every tourist touching down at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. *** But I was not aware the extent to which deforestation was happening, even within my own hometown and in my own backyard. Between the years 2000 and 2012, Malaysia lost over 45,000 square kilometres of forest. For context, that’s more than half the area of Scotland in twelve years – 14.4% of the forest that existed in Malaysia in 2000. No country in the world had a higher rate of deforestation during that period. *** The main drivers of deforestation in Malaysia are logging, urbanisation, fires, and the creation of palm oil plantations. Primarily due to the ever-increasing demand for palm oil, forest resources are being degraded and depleted at a staggering rate. This rapid habitat destruction threatens many of the 2,199 endemic species that contribute to Malaysia’s remarkable biodiversity. In Sabah, the Orangutan population has dropped by 30% due to the removal of forest for palm oil plantations. In Terangganu, Sun Bears and Malayan Tigers are being seen roaming villages and towns, as they are pushed out of their forest home. *** Aside from being a safe haven for innumerable species, rainforests serve an essential role in the global ecosystem by sequestering atmospheric carbon – reducing the amount of CO2 available to induce global heating. In that respect, tropical deforestation is considered the second largest anthropogenic source of greenhouse gas emissions. In plain English, it is one of the major causes of climate change. *Continued in the comments* #VoicesofthePlanet #PutAPriceOnIt

If you wanted to do something for yourself... like learn about better nutrition, find a fun ass workout plan that pushed you to a better you, gain a sense of self empowerment, and become part of a tribe of like-minded superstars going thru the same journey and you could do it for less than 2 quarters a day would you? Knowing what I know, I’d do it for a whole lot more... but for a couple more days I can hook you up with all of the above for just that. And that’s just the beginning... Can you put a price on a healthier happier you? If you can I guarantee it’s worth more than fifty cents a day. #justsayin

Hi guys happy Monday! Once a week my social media is given to a different student from our @yearsofliving #PutAPriceOnIt campaign to talk carbon pricing. This Sunday's post comes from Emily Radkowski, Our Climate Fellow and rising sophomore at UMass Amherst. We're so excited to share Emily's story from our Massachusetts campaign. “My New England woods have walls. I found one the other day, only a few feet high, made of cobblestones, and overgrown with a mossy coat. I doubt that the farmer who laid these stones anticipated that their actions would echo across centuries, that their handiwork would remind every wayfarer that ax and plow once dramatically transformed this landscape from forest to field. Today, our use of fossil fuels transforms our landscapes in staggering ways. We have chopped off the tops of mountains to access coal seams. Petroleum-derived plastics litter the oceans and choke marine life. Abandoned gas stations sit unused in almost every town and city on soils contaminated from decades of leaking tanks. Yet, when I see saplings and ferns surrounding stonewalls, I am reminded that our present trajectory is not our destiny. Farmlands have become forests once more. Our ecologies are resilient, but they require our assistance. That is why I fight for just and equitable climate policies because we, like the persistent trees and underbrush of my New England woods, can reclaim our landscapes.”

This was taken the day before @gracedobbyn and I crushed a presentation for @citizensclimatelobbychicago , telling new peeps all about #carbonfeeanddividend and HR 763. We practiced outside in the park because you never want to waste a good day in Chicago. Really grateful to have amazing female friends who are so supportive of the things I want to do with my life. It manifests in different ways, but taking the time to fight for environmental policy with me means a lot. • #summer #madeinamerica #organiccotton #consciousfashion #fairtrade #loveacroptop #nobraclub #PutAPriceOnIt

Powerful demonstration today by @ourclimateleaders Northeast Field Coordinator Eben Bein (pictured) at the Boston Commons right in front of the MA State House. This display depicted a mother North Atlantic right whale, ‘Karou’, and her calf, ‘Timothy’, and was made of roughly 1200 tiles, each drawn by local children responding to the ‘things we stand to lose to climate change’. They were *really* good! ‘Our Climate’ is a youth advocacy group, that “mobilizes and empowers young people to educate the public and elected officials” and this mosaic was trying to draw attention to MA House Bill H.2810, ‘An Act to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Promote Green Infrastructure’. Super amazing work Eben and all these volunteers and workers! 👏🏼👏🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼💙💙🐋🐋 #rightwhalerightway #putapriceonit #rightwhale #whale #conservation #massachusetts #ourclimate #rightwhalemosaic #mosaic #bostoncommon #boston #climate #youth #youthpower

For the past three days I’ve been suffering from the worst poison ivy rash, on my feet no less, I can barely wear shoes or sleep well at night. I’m a gardener and I love to be outdoors. It gives me no comfort to realize I can probably blame rising carbon levels for yet another thing. #actonclimate #putapriceonit #climatechange #hudsonvalleyny

Was happy for the opportunity to see Google headquarters in Chicago recently, not just because I got to sit in cool hanging chairs and witnessed that cafeteria food can in fact be gourmet. I was delighted to see that the building takes sustainability seriously, with everything from composting to repurposing old train cars to extensive rooftop gardens (this is super important in Chicago)--including bee hives! • Seeing all this, I can't help but wonder if @google would support the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act in Congress, which is the kind of policy we need to get all businesses shifting in the right direction, as opposed to leaving it up to a few. • #PutAPriceOnIt #carbonfeeanddividend #teampixel #beehugger #inmynisolos #madeinamerica #nobraclub #thanksitsfromwholefoods

Hi fellow citizens of planet Earth, it’s lobby day! Today volunteers from @citizensclimate are at the capitol in DC meeting with their representatives to talk about a solution for climate change. For those of us not in DC, a great and easy way to participate is to tweet your own member of Congress. There’s a link in my profile that shows you exactly how. Take a couple minutes and make your voice heard. If you don’t have time to do it today- you can totally do it tomorrow! Anytime is a good time to speak up for Mother Earth 🌎💕

Hi guys happy Sunday! Once a week we ask a different student from our @yearsofliving #PutAPriceOnIt campaign to write a piece on carbon pricing. This week’s text is from Eva Milstein-Touesnard, a student at Cornell University. Read, enjoy, get involved! “About 50% of the world’s human population lives in urban areas. That percentage increases every day. It is projected that in the years to come, most population growth will occur in cities. I have never been a city person but I know that nature isn’t the only thing that climate change will ruin. Climate change will also destroy humanity and all that we have created, including cities. Rising global temperatures are causing the oceans to warm. As ocean water gets warmer, it expands causing sea level rise. Most cities in coastal areas will experience a constant risk of flooding if they aren’t already. This will cost our world so many lives and so much money. With carbon pricing, the cost of our energy and goods will accurately represent damages carbon is causing. A price on carbon will not only allow clean energy to grow and thrive, but also generate revenue that can be used to strengthen and prepare our vulnerable communities against future climate threats. You don’t have to love nature to want to stop environmental degradation. Climate change affects everyone, so everyone should be concerned about it and take action!” 📷 from my travels last year. I so enjoy photographing treasures I find in nature to go along with these pieces. I am endlessly inspired by these students and grateful for the energy they contribute to our weekly posts🌎

Call Congress today and ask them to support the Energy Innovation Act! On Tuesday, over 1200 volunteers will meet with Congress in Washington D.C. as part of our lobby day. These meetings will be more successful when Congressional offices receive lots of calls in advance about the Energy Innovation Act. Can you spare 5 minutes today to call your members of Congress and ask them to support the Energy Innovation Act? Our easy online calling tool gives you the script, the phone numbers, and when you click "Done Calling", your calls will be logged so that we can measure our impact. cclusa.org/call #GrassrootsClimate #climate #climatechange #carbondividends #putapriceonit #cleanenergy #carbonfree #renewableenergy #renewable #priceoncarbon #priceonpollution #bipartisanclimate
