Citizen’s Climate Lobby

August 28, 2009 by Ian Bryan


“After I had given just a few talks about the climate, I realized that the actions I was suggesting to my listeners to take, while essential, were not a match for the problem. I realized that anything they intended to do, would be swamped by what the government did or did not do. I realized that ordinary people like me would have to organize, educate ourselves, give up our hopelessness and powerlessness, and gain the skills to be effective with our government.”

These are the words of Marshall Saunders, the founder of the Citizen’s Climate Lobby - one of the many unique exhibitors at West Coast Green 2009. You can call Citizen’s Climate Lobby a grassroots community organization, but a more accurate description would be an organization for creating political will. Finding practical solutions for our climate issues means you have to view government as a gatekeeper for significant change. Citizen’s Climate Lobby wants you realize your role in the world you would like to see unfold. Together, you make moves working with your local government and congressmen to facilitate sustainable change.
