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.

Interested in joining GCCC at the climate march in Atlanta on November 29?

The United Nations Climate Change Conference is being held in Paris on November 30th. The People’s Climate March in Atlanta is intended to be a peaceful, yet forceful demonstration of Atlanta’s commitment to the global climate movement. We hope to bring together people of all different backgrounds and interests to show that climate change is a mainstream issue, and that we demand action from our world leaders on climate.

Please click here and sign up to go to Atlanta on our Facebook event page.  If there is sufficient interest, we will try to charter a bus for the trip from Athens.

Our comrades up in New England just keep Singing it and Bringing it! The fight to stop the Sabal Trail pipeline here in GA goes on. See SpectraBusters.org for more GA state info. ...

What is the use of a governor who works for the fossil fuel industry and not the people? Makes promises but doesn't keep them? Read Steve Ahlquist's article on the 2 protests that occured during Gina Raimondo's state of the state address last night www.rifuture.org/two-protests-governors.html

Please take a couple of minutes to call our Senators and ask them to support the pro-solar amendment to the energy bill that is scheduled for a vote tomorrow:
Senator Perdue: 202-224-3521
Senator Isaacson: 202-224-3643

The amendment protects customers (via the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978; PURPA) that already have agreements with their electric utility for rooftop solar and other distributed generation from unjustified and abusive rate hikes and new fees. It also directs state regulators to account for the full range of benefits that distributed energy resources provide to the grid should they modify treatment of future customers.
