Welcome to the home of the Georgia Climate Change Coalition

The Georgia Climate Change Coalition is a group of citizens and organizations who share an interest in climate change in Georgia and the Southeast.  Based in Athens, Georgia, we sponsor events and educational programs and promote collaboration between our member groups.

We have several important events coming up, including drop-in time for writing letters to oppose the Sabal Trail Pipeline and our Annual Meeting, both November 19.

The FERC move their annual board meeting up by two weeks to avoid this protest against the rubber stamping of fracking gas extraction and pipeline construction. The Beat is going on! ...

This morning kicked off Beyond Extreme Energy #BXE week of action against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). FERC has revealed itself to be a rubber-stamp agency for the gas industry, recklessly approving pipelines, compressor stations, gas exports and more -- while ignoring the human, environmental, and climate impacts of these dangerous and dirty facilities. FERC are you listening? Fracked gas fighters are at your doorstep and we're not going anywhere!

EPIC!!!!! This is why we must protect our coast here in GA!!!!!! ...

Tybee has her first turtle this morning!!! And an epic sea turtle at that! This leatherback mom came up and was still heading back to the ocean when volunteer Kristin Peney found her. The leatherback is the largest sea turtle in the world and this one is estimated to be 1,600lbs! We haven't had a leatherback on our beach since 2004. No nest has been located at this time but our volunteers will continue to monitor the area.
