Citizens’ Climate Lobby Informational Conference Call
Aug 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The climate is changing now! We should too. Citizens’ Climate Lobby is working towards legislation that would:

  • Place a fee on fossil fuels at the source: well, mine or port of entry.
  • Distribute the net revenues to U.S. households to offset higher energy costs.
  • Include a border tariff adjustment to discourage businesses from relocating where they can emit more CO2. This will also encourage other nations to adopt equivalent carbon pricing.

Join in for a 1-hour informational conference call on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.
Register for the call at:  www.CitizensClimateLobby.org
Conference Number:  1-866-642-1665
Passcode:  440699#

OR:

Join Citizens’ Climate Lobby in Omaha on the second Saturday of every month at 11:45am at Augustana Lutheran Church, 38th & Lafayette Ave.
