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.


So here is our mayor, Nancy Denson, completely obstructing an event last night, making it impossible for people to participate, taking up time at least 10 minutes, reading a statement made by somebody else; a barely audible, rambling excuse for herself. She was the tie breaking vote last month in abdicated responsible stewardship of our local wetlands. Her and Commissioners Dickerson, Hamby, Herod, Sims and Bell. We were at this event to speak to three Commissioners who were trying to protect our water system, who attended all the preliminary meetings, Gritz spent countless hours working on the ordinance, and they had all come together to be open and available to the public to talk about this, as well as a host of other issues. Elected officials are supposed to be held accountable for their actions... Nancy couldn't even allow them to speak about the truth of what happened with out crashing the event and obstructing the conversation. Many people got up and left. Further in the evening, seeing that she wanted to be there to explain herself, she was asked, at least twice, why she doesn not put items on the agenda that are clearly important, as shown through public comment and activism, Her replies were, again and again, barely audible, rambling and weak attempts to make excuses for herself and her poor leadership, poor because of her obstructionist attitude towards issues she doesn't see as important, or doesn't agree with. ...

The Georgia Climate Change Coalition has a fund-raising/ out reach evening presence the fourth Wednesday of every month out front of the Athens Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop in downtown Athens. Come out between 5 and 8 pm and find out what we are up to, and help support our coalition. 20% of all sales are donated to our group! Ben & Jerry's has come out with a new flavor "Save Our Swirled"... Take Climate Action! If it's melted it's ruined! ...
