We speak with Grady McGonagill and Judy Weiss about a new climate group: Elder Climate Action . Their website says “We are grandparents, we are baby boomers, we are from the Greatest Generation. With age has come the wisdom, the perspective and the understanding that we are the guardians of future generations. We have arrived at the undeniable realization that if we don’t do something now, our grandchildren and future generations will suffer from our inaction.”
Elder Climate Action members will participate with the Citizen's Climate Lobby conference in DC. The CCL national conference is 6/19 and 6/20, and on 6/21 participants meet with every member of Congress or their aides. Portions of the conference will be live streamed, including Michael Mann’s Keynote address.

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
