According to a 2017 poll, 71% of Utahns believe in climate change and 64% believe human activity exacerbates it. Climate change is a bipartisan issue in Utah. That’s why so many of you weighed in to help us pass HCR007 – the first climate resolution in a red state in America. But since that victory, the IPCC issued a dire report about the need for strong and immediate climate solutions and a new study shows the cost of carbon pollution is extremely high. Now we need your help again.
Our partner, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, is asking Utahns to call our U.S. Senators and Representatives TODAY to ask them to support an effective bipartisan climate solution by enacting a carbon fee and dividend. Why? In a few days, members of Utah’s local chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL), along with six hundred CCL volunteers, will be in D.C. to lobby for climate action, and our phone calls will help underscore that we want strong legislation.
CCL is a nonpartisan national organization that empowers everyday people to work together on bipartisan climate change solutions. The local chapter’s goal is 20 calls. You can help by committing to call your members of Congress on November 9th!

Every call matters!
Time and again we hear from members of Congress that they don’t hear enough from their constituents that climate change matters to them and that as few as ten unique calls in a day is enough to elevate attention to an issue for the office.
