Climate change is already impacting Colorado’s people, economy, wild places, and way of life. We’re seeing hotter temperatures and drier summers; larger, more devastating wildfires; and shorter winters.
We need to act on climate now to leave a legacy for future generations. In 2019, we worked to pass a suite of nationally leading climate policies, including Colorado’s Climate Action Plan. These policies set science-based, economy-wide goals for reducing carbon pollution and tackling climate change, making Colorado an environmental leader once again. Now it’s up to us to implement these policies in a just and equitable way. Cutting carbon pollution will mean healthier air, cleaner energy, and more sustainable transportation.
