Citizens' Climate Lobby
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) was created solely to address climate change. International in scope, we, the Albany NY chapter, are a small part of the national effort that includes chapters in nearly every congressional district in the country. We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that is in constant search of bipartisan climate solutions that are the most effective, and are also socially just. Being the state capital, the hub of political decisions in New York, makes the Albany Chapter uniquely situated for making a difference in the New York State Government.
We believe that a ‘Fee and Dividend’ approach (assigning a fee that reflects the true cost of carbon emissions, and distributing the generated revenue
equally to all households) will provide the greatest benefit in the shortest period of time and be a boost to the economy. This concept, and other activities, are discussed in detail in our website.
We encourage you to act on the climate issue, which we believe is the greatest challenge of our time, the greatest you will ever face. Get involved, either with us at CCL (Join at: https://citizensclimatelobby.org/chapters/NY_Albany/) or perhaps with another climate–related group that is a better match for you.
