CCLC News Release on Colorado Joining the U.S. Climate Alliance

News release issued on July 12, 2017

Fort Collins, CO – Yesterday, Governor Hickenlooper announced that Colorado will join the U.S. Climate Alliance. He also released an Executive Order titled “Supporting Colorado’s Clean Energy Transition,” in which he set forth new climate goals for our State.

The Colorado Coalition for a Livable Climate (CCLC) is pleased that Colorado will join the U.S. Climate Alliance. The CCLC partnered with over 40 other Colorado organizations in June to call on Governor Hickenlooper to sign Colorado on as a member of that group. The U.S. Climate Alliance is committed to upholding the goal set forth by the United States Government when it signed the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 26% - 28% compared to 2005 levels by 2025.

Last Friday (8/4/17) Coloradoan readers were treated to the claims of two Forest Service Employees, Karl Zeller and Ned Nikolov. They say climate science is all wrong and they have proven it.

What is startling is that their ridiculously sketchy conjectures, which they’ve been shopping around for a decade, meet the Coloradoan’s standard for a serious page-one article. Unlike the Coloradoan, we chased down their claims via multiple climate scientists, and suffice to say they were convincingly debunked.

Open Letter to NOAA, EPA Scientists

Published in the Fort Collins Coloradoan on April 14, 2017

On Earth Day, April 22, there will be a March for Science nationwide and in Fort Collins, followed by a national People’s Climate March on April 29. These will be two excellent opportunities to express appreciation and solidarity with scientists, who sustain us through their work.

In the newly proposed federal budget, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are being targeted for massive cuts to jobs, grants and services that preserve our public health, safety and security, economy and environment. We can express support for NOAA and EPA scientists by calling members of Congress to request full funding of these agencies in the current and future budget cycles. Our open letter to those scientists follows.
