Climate 101 for Congress and Climate Action Campaign... and you!

Spring has sprung! We at EESI are so grateful for your commitment in playing a role in climate action that is so urgently needed by giving to EESI’s project on Engaging with Congress on Climate Change and Resilience

As Congress considers an array of policy options to bolster the economy and address climate, you’ve been helping to make possible a vital series of briefings through our new Congressional Climate Camp

You are making it possible to engage and inform Congressional staff, who may not be well versed in climate issues, on areas and opportunities for advancing equitable climate solutions that protect communities and create jobs.

The five-part series explores areas ranging from budget reconciliation (scheduled for May 21) to ways to decarbonize sectors with high emissions.

As an intern at EESI this spring, I’ve gotten the opportunity to support our policy work by compiling notes for our third Congressional Climate Camp installment; that briefing focused on lessons learned from previous Congresses' work on energy and public opinions on climate change; they are posted here if you’re interested.

I learned so much by attending this briefing, taking notes, and seeing how the EESI staff edited and tweaked my notes. So many past actions, challenges, and victories have influenced current environmental policy and also engaged stakeholders in action towards climate solutions and how to make success more likely. The briefing brought together experts from different sectors to deconstruct past climate policies and current attitudes towards these policies. 

You are invaluable in informing not only congressional staffers but also the public. For example, I’m always thrilled when I see that the media has used EESI fact sheets or interviewed EESI staff about Biden’s proposals. Our fact sheet on fossil fuel subsidies has gotten a lot of media attention lately. Our Climate Change FAQ fact sheet breaks down some of the most important concepts regarding climate change - with facts, charts, and additional resources. You can check out all our informative fact sheets here!

Finally, I am so excited to announce EESI’s participation in GlobalGiving’s Climate Action Campaign! The campaign runs from Monday, April 19 to Friday, April 23. During that week, donations to EESI made through the GlobalGiving platform, up to $100 per donor, will be matched at 50%!

The Climate Action Campaign is an opportunity for your gift for climate solutions to go further!  Please mark your calendar to give between the 19th and the 23rd to double your impact during Earth Week! 

Thank you again for your continued commitment to climate change solutions. You make all of this possible by supporting our programs (including the Richard L. Ottinger internship program that has made it possible for me to be part of EESI).

Best,
Jocelyn
