In the same week, climate hero Dr. James Hansen — one keynote speaker for CCL’s conference in Washington — had some great things to say about the organization in a Huffington Post blog, calling it “a democratic force to be reckoned with”.
With now more than 100 chapters across North America, Citizens Climate Lobby is anticipating 375 climate activists converging on DC at the end of the month, where they plan to meet with every office in the House and Senate.
My personal favorite excerpt from the article was a line from Elli Sparks who founded the Richmond VA CCL chapter.

CCL is an organization made up of people who refuse to give in to that cynicism; who have seemingly boundless energy; and who believe they can move mountains. And they are doing just that.
There is no better time than now to join them… at citizensclimatelobby.org.
