Tell Obama to Appoint a Climate Czar

Sign Petition Urging Obama to Designate a New Advisor on Climate Change

The next signal to solidify action on climate change by the administration is for the president to fill an office that has been vacant for more than two years. It’s time for a new climate czar.

Whether the president’s current proposal is aggressive enough and moves fast enough to match the climate crisis is unclear, but even modest actions will be met with strong pushback by the dirty energy industry and the politicians who do the industry’s bidding.

Making progress on the Obama plan to cut carbon and spur clean-energy deployment requires a dedicated senior-level staff.

Sign Our Petition Demanding the White House Appoints a New Leader on Climate Change

We, the undersigned, call on President Obama to appoint a new climate czar to coordinate our nation’s climate crisis response. We call on President Obama to designate a new advisor that understands the urgency and magnitude of the crisis and is given the support necessary to marshal an adequate response.

Learn More about the distinction between these two components of Public Citizen.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation

Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
