CCL wins 2020 Keeling Curve Prize


The 2020 Keeling Curve Prize, named for Charles Keeling, the scientist who started charting the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 1958, was awarded to Citizens’ Climate and nine other organizations Monday evening.

“We are thrilled to see our efforts honored in this way,” Citizens’ Climate Executive Director Mark Reynolds said. “Our staff and volunteers are working hard every day to make climate change a bridge between our two major political parties. Ultimately, we intend to support passage of the major, lasting, bipartisan policies required to reduce emissions and preserve a livable world. The prize money will help bring that vision to reality.”

CCL was one of two organizations awarded the $25,000 prize in the category of Social & Cultural Pathways. The prize is administered by the Global Warming Mitigation Project, which conducts a worldwide search for accomplished, scalable solutions with significant potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or increase carbon uptake.
