“If the political will of the people is asleep at the wheel, then the political will of government is likely to be asleep at the wheel.” - Sam Daley-Harris, Founder, RESULTS 



Citizens' Climate Lobby is a non-partisan, non-profit, grassroots movement creating political will for a national climate change solution. 

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


A bill was introduced in the house in November, 2018, H.R. 7173, The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.  It was re-introduced in the new Congress in 2019 as H.R. 763.



The Sacramento Citizens' Climate Lobby Chapter follows the national model.  

  • We are active in Congressional Districts 6 and 7, and work with the offices of Congresswoman Doris Matsui and Congressman Ami Bera.  

  • We write letters to the Bee and newspapers across the country about the revenue-neutral carbon tax.  

  • We meet monthly to listen to the national conference call, the second Saturday of every month.  

  • We offer speakers to inform Sacramento area groups and organizations.  

  • We need all hands on deck to address the profound risk facing our climate - please join us!
