Danny Richter

Citizens' Climate Lobby
Vice President, Government Affairs
Danny came to work on climate by way of medicine. Realizing the potential for a warming world to make lots of people sick, he figured the best thing he could do for the most people was to prevent the warming in the first place. This led him to pursue a Ph.D. in oceanography, thinking an understanding of past warming and cooling would help him counter the current, human-caused warming. Dr. Richter joined CCL’s staff in 2013 after 5 years as a volunteer, completing his Ph.D., and getting paid to do scientific research on all 7 continents. As CCL’s first staffer in DC, he established CCL's DC office where he has been responsible for developing overall legislative strategy, clarifying policy details, and interacting with other groups in DC. He has also overseen CCL’s research program.
