Climate Action Collaborative
How important is climate change to Eagle County, Colorado? We asked that question, and found that 86% percent of 1,100+ local respondents are “alarmed” or “concerned” about climate change. Other evidence supports this finding, and it’s now clear that the Eagle Valley not only considers climate change a serious issue, but is ready to do something about it.
Good news: More than 30 local businesses, organizations, nonprofits and governments ARE doing something about it, and that something is called the Climate Action Collaborative. The Collaborative’s goal is simple: reduce carbon emissions 25% by 2025 and 80% by 2050. It’s a big goal, and a goal that a large portion of Eagle County feels is one of the most important issues of our generation. Perhaps it is especially clear to us here in the mountains, where much of our economy rises and falls with snowfall totals and the precious water that runs through our streams and rivers.
