President Barack Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington, D.C. 20500 Mr. Rex W. Tillerson Exxon Mobil Corporation 5959 Las Colinas Blvd. Irving, Texas 75039 Re: Citizens Climate Lobby has your back in support of a Carbon Fee Dear President Obama and Mr. Tillerson, Today, I am in Washington, DC, with some 350-400 other volunteers at Citizens Climate Lobbys 4th International Conference. During the week, we intend to meet with 435 members of Congress

-- every Senator and Representative -- and will continue our previous conversations with them and build upon the relationships we have established during the past four years. The photo above is from 2012, when we were one-third our current size. Last year about 135 unpaid citizens came from all parts of the US and Canada. We met 180+ members of Congress. Our ranks have grown to 2,000+ citizens in 100+ cities. We meet at dining room tables, church meeting rooms and office conference rooms on the first Saturday of each month in a one-hour conference call, and then we practice speaking to the issues of climate, energy and carbon fee. We write letters to the editor in all our home town and national media -- and OpEds and essays. Today and tomorrow we will be all together at a major hotel near Capitol Hill -- all 350+ of us. Tuesday through Friday, we will meet in groups of 4 to 6 in the halls of the Senate and the House.
