We work for Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a nonpartisan grassroots climate organization with 180k supporters! Ask us anything about the politics and policy of climate change, including how you can help push Congress forward.
We are Dr. Danny Richter, VP of Government Affairs, and Jerry Hinkle, Research Coordinator, of Citizens' Climate Lobby. CCL is a volunteer organization of over 180,000 people dedicated to creating the political will for a livable planet. This means doing something about carbon emissions as soon as possible.
We have each been lobbying Congress for over 10 years, pushing both Republicans and Democrats forward on this issue. We're here to answer your questions about the politics of climate change, and the national climate policy we think can can pass our divided Congress. In particular, we can answer questions about CCL’s flagship policy: carbon fee and dividend, which is in Congress right now as H.R. 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act!
We'll start answering your questions at 4PM today.
Edit: Thanks so much for all the great questions! We're done for now, but if you have more to ask, please reach out on Instagram or twitter! And of course, please check out our website for more info on how to get involved.
