The Next International Call

Charles Kennel, who was the ninth director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and a former Associate Administrator at NASA, is our November guest.

  • "With all the negative news on climate and Congress it's understandable to feel discouraged.  But hopelessness is not a strategy for making a difference and neither is acting alone.  Citizens' Climate Lobby is the antidote, the missing link, the Harvard of citizen activism."

  • "Most impressive is the work of Citizens' Climate Lobby...If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group."

  • "The Citizens' Climate Lobby has identified the issue of pricing carbon as a vitally important lever in promoting dialog and action on climate protection. If you've been looking for that one group to join, you can stop looking now."
