Citizens' Climate Lobby: Climate change solutions


Join us on October 4th for a
Candidate Forum on Climate and the Environment


We hold a letter-writing session most 3rd Saturdays at 10am!

This month, on Sat. Sept. 17th, the session will be held at Parking Day on Greenwood Ave. in Seattle in 2 of the parking spots outside and just north of 81st St. and Greenwood.

We will meet there at 10:00 am and write letters to the editor, members of congress and important people for endorsements.  If it is raining, we move to Couth Buzzard book store and cafe between 83rd and 84th streets on Greenwood Ave N.  Questions: email seattle@citizensclimatelobby.org


Please join us for our monthly meetings every second Saturday at 10:00am near 85th and Greenwood in north Seattle.  All are welcome.


At our Sept. 10th (2016) meeting: Our guest speaker for the 10-11am call-in will be former US Representative and strong climate change mitigation advocate Bob Inglis of South Carolina. You are also welcome to come earlier, optionally, at 9:30 for a potluck breakfast that precedes the call-in. After the call-in, from 11-12noon, we debate, discuss, role model, and make plans for action. Email seattle@citizensclimatelobby.org for the street address of the  meeting.

Our guest speaker this month, former Rep. Inglis, is now the Executive Director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative based at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.

Mr. Inglis founded and launched the national, grassroots organization on July 10, 2012. Under his leadership, E&EI advocates conservative alternatives to big-government mandates and fickle tax incentives. E&EI maintains that the accountability of a  “true cost” comparison between competing fuels will drive innovation and economic growth. As an optimistic conservative, Mr. Inglis launched E&EI to apply a “can-do” American spirit to the challenges at hand.

Before starting E&EI, Mr. Inglis represented South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union counties) for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Inglis was first elected to Congress in 1992, having never run for public office. He spent six years in the U.S. House (1993-98) and kept a campaign commitment to serve just three terms. In 1998, he unsuccessfully challenged Democratic U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings.

If you can’t make is to the meeting, you can still get the guest speaker’s talk by listening/downloading it from our podcasting channel or from our space on iTunes.
