The Marin Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby supports all efforts to drawdown CO2 emissions and reverse climate change. We support the market based solution to climate change by advocating a carbon fee and dividend. This policy will help enable and accelerate the development of renewable carbon-free technologies.
“CCL exists to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power.”
