COLORADO CLIMATE DEFENDER ORGANIZER
Colorado has suffered from the effects of climate change with drought, wildfire, and an unreliable snowpack. With snow-related and river-related recreation as two huge pieces of the economy, Coloradans are feeling the economic effects. The 2018 wildfire season was terrifying, putting farms, homes, and lives in danger.
The good news is that Environment Colorado has been working to cut global warming pollution for decades and we've made progress from cleaner cars on the road to boosting solar and wind power. Unfortunately, crucial victories have come under attack from the Trump administration.
We won't let that hold us back in Colorado or across the country. We're drawing a line in the sand to stop the Trump administration from rolling back climate and clean air protections from the Clean Power Plan to clean cars.
If we are going to be successful in fundamentally changing the way that we power our country, we are going to need every elected official who believes in the science of climate change and who wants to see us take it on to be vocal in their support and call on other elected leaders to do the same. And we need them to make this stand as loudly as possible to make it clear that supporting climate action is good policy and good politics.
