Our Mission

The Climate Change Leadership Institute is founded on a most challenging premise – that the United States of America can correct her mistakes and be at the forefront in achieving a sustainable way of life on earth. The act of taking responsibility is at the heart of the change we seek given that human-induced global warming poses a growing threat to the world and the US, the lead perpetrator of the problem, is only begining to change. When we compel our Nation to fully own up to this injustice and take unparalleled measures of climate restoration and restitution, genuine security and widespread prosperity will emerge. As we revolutionize our economy – to be powered completely with clean energy and state of the art energy efficiency with a premium on conservation – we will once again be a beacon of light to the world.

In carrying out the mission – to compel the US to take responsibility for our massive role in human-induced global warming by asserting bold leadership and providing seminal solutions – the Climate Change Leadership Institute adopts the following central organizing principles and approaches to change-making.
