Citizens’ Climate University: Attending Town Hall & Candidate Forums (Audio Only)

March 23, 2018

Audio Only: Town hall meetings and candidate forums are settings where the member of Congress and candidates want to connect with people in the district.

When these events are large and structured, the opportunity is different than when they are small. Through good planning and by being quick to adapt to the situation, you can take advantage of these opportunities. They are worth planning for with the same care that you plan for a lobby meeting.

Citizens’ Climate University: Campaign Season Activities

March 23, 2018

Join CCL's Senior Director of Government Affairs Ben Pendergrass in a webinar geared at providing tips, insights and resources available to someone in your group with an interest in building candidate relationships in the primary season.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby will always remain a nonpartisan organization, and given our unique position, we have the opportunity to connect with individual candidates from both sides of the aisle on the issue of climate change during this season of electoral primary campaigns. While being clear that we do not support or organize for individual candidates or political parties, our volunteer network still plays the essential role of providing insight to all candidates as to why our policy would be best for their constituents.

This webinar also features stories from CCL chapters that have effectively used the primary campaign season to build significant relationships with whomever may win the election.

Citizens’ Climate University: Carbon Fee & Dividend Calculator

March 10, 2018

The Carbon Fee and Dividend Calculator is a easy-to-use online tool to estimate the financial outcome of the policy for an individual household under the first-year carbon dioxide fee of $15 per metric ton. It's a way to take the abstract statistical findings of the Household Impact Study down to the personal level.

Join Rick Knight, CCE's Research Coordinator and Ricky Bradley, CCL's IT Director as they walk through this CCL-created powerful new tool for all CCL volunteers.

To use the Calculator, you will need to be able to supply seven key pieces of information: number of adults in your household, number of children, annual household income (nearest $1,000), zip code, what type of car you drive, type of dwelling (house, apartment, etc.), and the type of home heating (electricity, natural gas, etc.). That information will allow the Calculator to compute your household dividend and make a "default" estimate of what the carbon fee will cost a typical household with those characteristics. 

This tool is a handy way to answer questions from friends, family, interested parties at a tabling event or presentation, or potential supporters who need a clearer idea of how the Carbon Fee and Dividend works. It can be used to create case studies for households in a particular Congressional District or town and can also be used to find out how certain lifestyle change will affect your bottom line under our policy.
