In his own words: “I spent last year doing the hard work of talking to farmers, ranchers, and others feeling the effects of climate change across Colorado—including in rural districts that are often left out of the conversation. We discussed the devastating effects climate change is having on their livelihoods and how they are coming together to develop innovative solutions to adapt. These conversations reinforced my belief that if we bring the country together, and engage diverse coalitions, we can build a durable solution to address climate change and drive economic growth. That is why, on Day 1, I will seize the opportunity to combat climate change—providing new opportunities for farmers, ranchers, and rural communities to become more resilient and to invest in zero-emissions energy while growing the economy.”
