Thank you very much for supporting the passage of the Council’s resolution supporting HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019. I believe this is the first/best step our nation can take to address the climate crisis. Climate solutions much be a bridge issue, rather than a wedge issue, between the parties. Your support of this resolution aids Citizens Climate Lobby members like me in continuing our work for a livable world.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
