Addressing Climate Change

Introduced by Lion Jesse Moore

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.

Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.

In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community.

About our speakers:
Jon Beall, a retired US Marine and Vietnam veteran has been a member of the Citizens Climate Lobby since 2014. Jon is the CCL liaison for Representative Lamar Smith and Senator John Cornyn. He was the owner of Telephone Data Integrators and has been involved in many organizations in the Austin area including the Rotary Club of Austin (1987-2000), the City of Austin Environmental board and the Barton Springs Conservancy. His work to find solutions to the climate crisis comes from his current work in agriculture and his desire to have a liveable world for his six grandchildren.

Ray Trono has been a member of the Citizens Climate Lobby since 2017 and is a member of the Barton Springs Chapter. He is currently employed as the Chef at St. David’s Episcopal where he oversees the church’s Hospitality Ministry. Ray is a avid outdoors person and has two children. Ray’s concern of the changing climate began when he connected extreme weather patterns to his inability to enjoy outdoor activities and problems sourcing food for the St. David’s kitchen. Like Jon, he is also concerned about what the future holds for his children. Joining CCL has given Ray a realistic solution to reversing the climate crisis.
