Citizens’ Climate Lobby Watch Party

Years of Living Dangerously. National Geographic

Thursday December 8th 6:30

Citizens’ Climate Lobby will be the focus of the acclaimed National Geographic series “Years of Living Dangerously,” which has helped to focus national attention on climate change and the individuals and organizations working to alleviate it.

“At a time when many Americans despair about the partisan gridlock in Washington, CCL volunteers provide hope by bringing Republicans and Democrats together to work on climate solutions,” said Mark Reynolds, Executive Director of Citizens’ Climate Lobby. “This episode of ‘Years of Living Dangerously’ highlights the work of Jay Butera, one of those amazing volunteers.”

Citizens Climate Lobby works to build the political will for climate change solutions such as a national, revenue neutral carbon fee-and-dividend system. Since the organization’s 2007 founding, it has empowered ordinary citizens to hold direct meetings with congressional representatives, local officeholders and business leaders, and other influential stakeholders as they make the case for fair, effective climate action.
