The Keeling Curve Prize is a big deal to organizations working to mitigate climate change. Given annually by the Global Warming Mitigation Project and named for the late climate-science researcher Charles David Keeling, affiliated with Scripps Institution of Oceanography from the 1950s till his death in 2005, it is awarded annually to 10 projects with success in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Citizens' Climate Lobby, a Coronado-based nonprofit with chapters in every congressional district in the U.S., is one of this year’s Keeling Curve award winners.
Mark Reynolds, Citizens' Climate Lobby's executive director, talked with Midday Edition on Tuesday about how his organization is focused on bipartisan legislation, such as HR 763, to increase the cost of using carbon by assessing fees to energy companies and industries and returning that revenue to households.
Wildcoast, the imperial Beach group which focuses on marine and coastal preservation as well as climate change, was a Keeling Curve Prize winner in 2019.
