Colorado needs a bold policy to reduce carbon pollution

All residents of Colorado deserve clean air and good health. Why are we letting corporate polluter profits take priority over Coloradans health? By acting on climate and reducing air pollutants such as carbon we dramatically reduce the rates of heart disease, respiratory diseases, asthma and cancer for our most vulnerable populations such as children and seniors.

To do this Colorado must be a leader. It is beyond time to boost clean energy and protect our public’s health by taking real climate action. We are in a climate emergency and only if we take action by passion bold protect will we help stave off the most devastating effects.

I call on all our legislators to act on climate now and not sit idly by and give in to special interests. We all have an obligation to do something now. We must act so we don’t leave our loved ones, children and grandchildren a planet that’s damaged and polluted.

Char Hakes,

Thornton
