The UUCB Climate Change Ministry is excited about forming an alliance with the Citizens Climate Lobby! This national organization’s purpose is to create the political will for a stable climate and to empower individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power. More specifically, they have been working for the past few years to pass a national revenue-neutral carbon fee and dividend program that will incentivize renewable energy technologies and lead to stabilizing our climate.
Here’s what Dr. James Hansen, retired head of Goddard Institute for Space Studies and world-renown climate expert has said about this organization. “Most impressive is the work of Citizens Climate Lobby, a relatively new, fast-growing, nonpartisan, nonprofit group with 91 chapters across the United States and Canada. If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group.”
Early in April, members of our Climate Change Ministry participated in the training and launch of the Boulder chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby. We will be hosting the CCL monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. If you’d like to join this exciting new initiative, please join us!
