Welcome to the Pasadena-Foothills chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby, a nonprofit, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national legislation to put a price on carbon emissions.
The Foothills chapter encompasses the communities of East LA, Glendale, La Cañada, Pasadena, Arcadia, Monterey Park and all those in between.
February is here, and the Pasadena Black History Parade is less than 2 weeks away, on Saturday, Feb. 18. It will be fun, outdoors, and visible. And, it is an opportunity for CCL members to get together with each other in person! We encourage and welcome others who are concerned about the climate to join us. The purpose of our entry is more about climate awareness than gaining new members. We're working on getting other people involved, but there are no guarantees, so we members are the core.
The plan is to walk down Fair Oaks Avenue as a group, carrying earth globes and signs, singing a song, clapping, making eye contact, and maybe a little conversation with folks on the sidelines. Click on this version of We've Got the Whole World in Our Hands and see if you can keep from smiling. We can vary the lyric as we walk, for instance, "We've got future generations in our hands," and there are other ideas here. It is a simple message and an upbeat delivery, shining a light on the problem of climate change and the fact that we need to take responsibility and act. At the same time, we're suggesting hope and promise.
If you have a Citizens' Climate Lobby T shirt, wear it! If you don't have one, but want to get one, you still have time (Do it now!) by clicking here. Contact Rex Mayreis at Rmayreis@earthlink.net or (626) 616-4559 with questions. Find more details below.

Extended webinar explaining the bill
As many of you have seen, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act has been introduced in the House! While the bill may not be perfect, this is a great start. Please take a look at it and consider actively supporting it, by sharing on social media, writing or emailing your representative, and just talking about it with others. If you saw the recent National Climate Assessment it should be clear that we need to act NOW. There are effective bi-partisan climate change solutions!
