GreenSportsBlogger Featured on Citizens’ Climate Radio


Peterson Toscano hosts the vibrant, informative Citizens’ Climate Radio podcast, broadcast via Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s website. He interviewed me recently about the Green-Sports movement and its potential.


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

Its citizen lobbyists advocate for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763), a revenue neutral carbon fee and dividend policy. It is the first bipartisan carbon pricing bill ever to be introduced in the House, with Republican representative Francis Rooney (FL-19) joining over three dozen Democrats as co-sponsors. Funds raised by the fee will be returned to all American taxpaying households in the form of a monthly dividend check or direct deposit.

Independent analyses show that the bill, if passed and signed into law, would:

  • Reduce American’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent in 12 years,
  • Be a net positive financially for the lowest two thirds of households on the income scale (would receive more in dividends than they would pay in higher prices)
  • Create 2.1 million new jobs, thanks to economic growth in local communities across America, and
  • Improve health and save lives.

Talk about a win-win-win-win!

I have volunteered with several phenomenal green nonprofits over the years, including CCL. For me, CCL has the potential to have the most significant positive impact because it is lobbying for a specific policy prescription that, should it become law, will make a significant difference on emissions.

So I was honored to be interviewed about the Green-Sports movement on Peterson Toscano’s Citizens’ Climate Radio podcast. Our segment takes up the first half of his 30 minute show. Here’s the link:

Thanks for giving a listen. Let me know what you think. If you like what you hear, subscribe to Peterson’s podcast:
