The two most polluted neighborhoods in America (Globeville and Elyria-Swansea) reside within Colorado’s capital. Stats like that are simply unacceptable for me as a Colorado Native. Currently the federal government is at war with environmental protection. Every thing from the clean water act, to air quality requirements, to green energy investment is under attack by this president. It is our state legislature’s job to carefully analyze and take note of every protection taken away by the federal government, and make an effort to replace and strengthen each protection through our state government. We must make a plan to make Colorado carbon neutral by 2030, and we need to work with our energy providers to transition our energy infrastructure from the dirty energy sources of the past into the clean, efficient, and low cost solutions of the future.
