Letter to the editor: Act now on climate

Posted

I am currently a junior in high school in Arvada, and love my state.
The mountains are gorgeous, as are the colorful skies we get to see. So it makes me so sad to know what we are doing to our beautiful state and the world. It terrifies me to know that someday, when I have my own family, I may not be able to live here and show them this beauty. And the damage will be irreversible by 2030 if we don’t act now.

The time for passive action has passed. We are on a tight clock and unless we start taking significant action right now, it will be too late. Our citizens are already feeling the effects of poor air quality and pollution. Colorado has always been a leader, so we as a state need to set the example for other states by reducing our carbon pollution. So I call on our state legislator: cut pollution and keep our Colorful Colorado clean by supporting bill 1261. We need action now, before it’s too late.

Lily Abourezk,
Arvada
