Environmental Advocacy

Carbon180 is a left-of-center environmentalist group that advocates and lobbies for reducing carbon emissions with the ultimate goal of achieving “negative” carbon emissions. [1] [2] [3]

Overview

Founded in 2015 and an independent organization as of 2016, Carbon180 engages in a variety of activities to advocate for carbon emission restrictions. Its policy team conducts analyses, hosts workshops, and provides education and outreach to policymakers to support increased federal funding for issues related to carbon removal to achieve negative carbon emissions. Its Leading with Soils program attempts to get farmers and ranchers across the Mountain West to adopt specific carbon-reducing agricultural practices. Carbon180 also has hosted and participated in conferences, government briefings, and workshops related to carbon reductions. [4] It creates roadmaps detailing its environmental policy recommendations to Congress. [5]

Carbon 180 publishes two newsletters, a blog, and resources on carbon removal policy and science. [6] In 2020, the organization spent $10,000[7] lobbying on carbon-reduction issues in agriculture and the federal government’s Superfund program, which requires clean-up of polluted sites left by legacy industries. [8] It repeated this lobbying behavior in 2021, spending $10,000[9] on the same two issues. [10] The organization also received pledges of financial support from various celebrities such as Grimes, the experimental-pop musician and girlfriend of Tesla founder Elon Musk; the electronic duo Odesza; and singer Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, known as Halsey. [11]
