  • Here is a fun activity for students that want our leaders to act on climate.The 2017 UN Climate Change Conference will take place in Bonn, Germany this November. Citizens Climate Lobby and Put a Price on It are working together to compile a digital book of student testimonials to show at the conference, and to members of Congress to show young people support for carbon pricing! Please go into this google presentation, and share a photo of yourself, as well as a sentence or two of why you support carbon pricing as a solution to climate change. Provide your age, hometown, school, major, and notable activities you are involved in. Also include your email and phone number in the notes in case we need to get in touch with you. You don’t have to be a current student, but you must be under 30 to participate.  Please submit your testimonial by October 30. Thank you for sharing your concern for the climate!

Climate action letter for colleges and universities

We recognize that a lot is happening this week (of Earth Day), but we want to draw your attention to an opportunity for your institution to participate in the higher education climate letter that we initiated last fall with a group of 30 campuses.
One of the goals of the effort was to align higher education’s voice with that of the business community for scaled climate action. We have publicly launched that joint effort today with partners under the banner of Low Carbon USA. Over 230 presidents and chancellors, combined with over 1000 businesses, can really move the needle on whether current administration decides to remain in the Paris Agreement and will ensure national climate action will continue to accelerate despite the lack of federal government involvement. It is this type of collective, multi-sectoral support that will be essential for global climate progress.
We are keeping the statement open indefinitely and welcome more campus participants. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
Thank you, as always, for your great work and support during this critical time in our country’s history,
Tim

At Legislative Plaza

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
