We are the Yolo County Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby, working together with other CCL chapters and climate advocates throughout the U.S. and world to pass economically practical legislation for solving the problem of greenhouse gas induced global warming. See our latest newsletter here.
Major Climate Legislation Passes Senate and House!
From CCL National:
August 12, 2022 – Today, the U.S. House passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, putting the U.S. on a path to at least 40% emissions reduction by 2030. House passage comes less than a week after the legislation passed the U.S. Senate, meaning the bill has now cleared all legislative hurdles and is on its way to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law.
CCL is thrilled to see, for the first time, the U.S. Congress taking action that reflects the scale of the climate problem. Our organization’s grassroots energy helped keep climate change on the agenda for congressional action throughout months of an uncertain reconciliation process. Our supporters generated more than 200,000 calls and emails to Congress since last July, urging lawmakers to be as ambitious as possible with their climate action. We’re proud to be part of the robust climate movement that helped this day arrive.

What can Bernie Sanders, Janet Yellen, major oil companies, and 3500 economists agree on??
Carbon Pricing with rebates or dividends is the most effective economy-wide measure for addressing climate change. With border adjustments, it’s also a world-wide solution.
What we do
Yolo CCL has been spreading the good news about a nonpartisan approach to global warming that can do the heavy lifting, be effective internationally, and actually improve the economy. We lobby members of Congress and provide public outreach. We table at numerous community events, present to local groups, and hold meetings with Congressman Garamendi and other members of Congress and their aides on advancing climate legislation. We work with other climate advocacy groups on moving solutions forward at all levels.
