Welcome to Sacramento Citizens Climate Lobby

The mission of CCL is to create the political will for a stable climate

CCL is a non-partisan group of citizens that informs public opinion and creates the political will for a national, revenue-neutral carbon tax: a fee placed on the source of production, with 100% of the money collected returned equally to all American households - a carbon fee and dividend.

CCL members exercise their political voice:
    • We meet with members of Congress
    • We write Letters to the Editor
    • We speak to community groups
    • We present community events
Climate change poses an enormous and pressing risk to the security of our nation, the world, and future generations. 

At CCL we support a national market-based solution that both conservatives and liberals can get behind: a revenue-neutral carbon tax with 100% dividend to all American households.  It does not increase the size of government, it harnesses the power of investors and entrepreneurs, and it protects low and middle-income households. 

Only a global solution can address the risk we face.  We propose a national solution that demonstrates world leadership and incorporates market incentives for other nations to join.

  • Stop ignoring scientific evidence Re “Scientists see global warming, drought ties” (Page 8A, Aug. 21): Recent scientific research points to more evidence showing the role a warming climate plays in “intensifying and prolonging droughts.” However, recently, I have heard many people make statements like: “It doesn’t matter if we overwater our lawns because the water goes back into the aquifer,” “Making a big deal over the drought is a ploy by Southern California to get more of our water” and “The coming El Niño will prove the panic over the drought is unfounded, and climate is just doing its normal fluctuations.”These comments are not backed by science. People need to stop living in a bubble of information from questionable sources and start ...

  • Sac Bee LTE 6/28/16- Jennifer Wood Re “Shultz’s view of climate change” (Dan Morain, June 25): I was thrilled to read Dan Morain’s column about George Shultz, secretary of state under Ronald Reagan, and his support for climate action that includes a revenue-neutral carbon tax. I just returned from Washington, D.C., to lobby Congress with a group called Citizens’ Climate Lobby, along with over 800 other volunteers who visited every congressional office on Capitol Hill.We were lobbying for national legislation that calls for a carbon fee and dividend, which is exactly the proposal discussed by Shultz, who is on our Advisory Board. The road to a simple, transparent national climate solution is not easy and there are many obstacles. However, at ...

  • Visionaries lead the way Re “Apple to build solar plant” (Business, Feb. 11) and “Google buys into clean energy” (Business, Feb. 12): Kudos to Apple and Google for announcing that they are moving forward on huge green energy projects to fuel their operations, Apple in solar and Google in wind. A significant portion of their energy will be supplied by these energy sources.If only more American companies and politicians could take the forward-looking position of Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, who stated, “We know that climate change is real. Our view is that the time for talk is past and the time for action is now,” then this country truly could move toward a carbon-neutral goal.Apple and Google are proven ...

  • Global warming is worsening California's drought Re "Climate change is increasing chances of California drought" (Viewpoints, Sept. 30): Stanford scientists Daniel Swain and Noah Diffenbaugh just published a study finding that human-caused global warming has increased the chances of a high pressure ridge off the coast like the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge that's a primary cause of our current exceptional drought. Another study published a few weeks ago likewise found a human influence in the ridge and intensity of California's drought. Global warming also raises temperatures and evaporation from reservoirs and soil, amplifying droughts even further. A UC Davis study estimated that the drought will cost California over $2 billion this year. People always focus on the costs of reducing carbon pollution, but the ...
