      Asheville Citizens' Climate Lobby Monthly Meeting

      Do you want to help lobby bipartisan solutions on climate change? Or take the lead on talking to businesses about climate advocacy? Or how about being a public voice for climate engagement in politics?

      Citizens’ Climate Lobby helps to build political will for a livable world by empowering citizens to engage with national legislators on a bipartisan climate change solution called Carbon Fee & Dividend. This revenue-neutral, market-based solution would charge a slowly rising fee on carbon and return the dividends to each household equally on a monthly basis to offset the rising cost. It would also help to grow the economy, jobs, & GDP, provide predictability for the markets, promote bank investments in low-carbon technologies, and motivate energy companies to transition to cleaner energy faster. Come learn more about our legislation that has been introduced to Congress in 2019 with bipartisan support. It is called the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act www.energyinnovationact.org

      At our CCL-AVL chapter meetings, we dive into how we can use these strategies to build the political momentum for climate action to pass national bipartisan legislation on climate change. All political parties are welcome to join in this effort - conservative, liberal, progressive, libertarian, etc.
