You've seen the news and probably have family or friends who have experienced extreme weather events like floods, fires, drought, record heat, record cold, hurricane or interrupted travel in this past year. The earth's atmosphere has changed and the world is feeling the effects.

Citizens Climate Lobby has 41 lobby teams across the U.S. and Canada. In 2011, CCL members held 224 Congressional Meetings (in local districts as well as in Washington, D.C.) and published 176 editorials, opinion pieces and letters in many national newspapers and other printed and online publications.
