Citizen’s Climate Lobby is organizing a Call-in Day where you call your representatives to let them know your thoughts on climate change. Time and again we hear from members of Congress that they don’t hear enough from their constituents that climate change matters to them. Calling your Senators and Representative will help create the political will needed to solve global warming. Even a dozen calls to a congressional office have been shown to make a difference.
