Do you want to see Congress do something to fight climate change?  If so, join Iowa Climate Advocates for the launch of a new chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby in Des Moines on Saturday, July 20.  The event and training will run from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Channing Hall at First Unitarian Church, 1800 Bell Avenue, in Des Moines. Joining us for this event will be Lynate Pettengill of Citizens Climate Lobby from Lawrence, Kansas.  This event is free.  Refreshments will be provided.  All advocates for climate action from across Iowa are encouraged to attend.
Citizens Climate Lobby is now the leading advocacy organization working Congressional district by Congressional district across America for climate action.  CCL is currently focused on passing carbon fee and dividend legislation that will put a fee on carbon pollution and refund all of the money to Americans on a per capita basis.  If you conserve and use renewable electricity, you get cash back.
To take effective action against climate change, we need Congress to pass national climate legislation, as soon as possible, and support our President and the international effort to fight climate change.  We need Congress to start acting on climate change now, and sustain that effort for decades.  After Hurricane Sandy and all the other recent climate disasters, isn't there something Congress could do in 2013 to fight climate change.
If you are planning to attend the event July 20, please RSVP to Rob Hogg at
