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.

American Petroleum Institute proposes a carbon price

The American Petroleum Institute (API), the country’s largest trade association for the oil and gas industry, has drafted a proposal urging Congress to adopt a carbon fee with rebates to Americans. They propose using the revenue for rebates to households and investments in new technology, and they call for border tariffs to keep U.S. businesses competitive.

If this policy sounds familiar, it should: it’s similar to the policy that Citizens’ Climate Lobby has supported for years.

The turnaround at the API, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable, and other organizations is amazing. Once some of the other front page issues settle down, there is a good chance of getting enduring action on climate.

CCL Conservative Conference Success

The National Conservative Conference was recently held in Washington DC. Over 80 Conservative Caucus leaders from around the country attended to hear from 5 Republican House members working for climate action, industry representatives, youth climate group leaders, and other Eco-right organization leaders. Legislative strategy proposals were also developed by attendees. CCL Conservative Caucus Vice-chair and Yolo Chapter member Rob Beggs attended and also met with Senator Lisa Murkowski as part of an Americans for Action on Climate Fund event.

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.

Join us and come work together.
