    Opinion: As Biden orchestrates a response to climate change, Colorado can serve as a model

    Press Release

    February 25, 2021 | President Joe Biden’s executive order in January directing the federal government to create a Civilian Climate Corps marks the recognition of an existential threat we are facing on our planet.

    In Colorado we are facing a new era of mega-fires, declining access to water, and other potentially devastating effects of climate change. President Biden’s executive order correctly calls this a “profound climate crisis” and seeks to broadly address climate change by putting Americans to work “restoring public lands and waters, increasing reforestation, increasing carbon sequestration in the agricultural sector, protecting biodiversity, improving access to recreation, and addressing the changing climate.”
