Citizens’ Climate Lobby

May 2019 Meeting with Carlos Curbelo

May 11, 2019

Before leaving Congress, Carlos Curbelo did more than any Republican to tone down the divisive rhetoric on climate change and start a movement to turn it into a bipartisan issue. Along with Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), he led the formation and growth of the Climate Solutions Caucus, which had 45 Republicans and 45 Democrats at the end of the previous Congress. In January, he joined the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and he also joined the advisory board of the Millennial Action Project, a nonprofit focused on getting younger lawmakers to work across the aisle and to bring civility to the governing process. He joins this month’s call to talk about building the momentum for a bipartisan approach to solving climate change.
