We use data science to find under-the-radar politicians with outsized climate impact. We have worked with over 500 campaigns since 2020, and our candidates control over 813 million metric tons of CO₂ emissions per year. In 2023, Climate Cabinet won about 75% of its top priority races, ranging from municipal, county, and state offices.
At Climate Cabinet, we call ourselves "Moneyball for Climate." In major league baseball, analysts pour over large amounts of data—batting average, earned runs, speed, etc.—searching for undervalued players with game-winning potential. This practice, known as "moneyball," allows teams to discover under-the-radar stars and help them reach their full potential, with game-changing outcomes. At Climate Cabinet, we’ve applied that same "moneyball" approach to finding local policymakers—we use the numbers to find under-the-radar climate champions and get them the support they need to win.
Since 2018, Climate Cabinet has grown from a volunteer-based team into a powerful organization shaking up U.S. climate politics—we use data science to identify critical, under-the-radar climate elections at the state and local levels, and then leverage our team’s background in clean energy project development, political campaigns, and policy to deliver resources to the pro-climate candidates running in them. In this work, Climate Cabinet is building sustained power for tackling climate change and creating an equitable clean energy future.
Investing in a clean energy economy will create jobs and help our communities thrive.
Cleaning up our air means protecting our health—a fact which is more apparent than ever as we grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Communities of color are disproportionately burdened with the toxic facilities that power our society. We are working towards a clean, healthy future for everyone.
