Letter: Sound the alarm

Too often lately our mountains are shrouded in smoke. Our pristine air is rated at various levels of hazardous. Floods and hurricanes pummel one coast; wildfires rage up and down the other. These extreme weather events serve as alarm bells that cannot be ignored. Human-caused global warming is a scientific fact and it must be addressed before it is too late.

We need elected officials who will take action against this urgent threat, rather than those who deny the threat exists. Here in Colorado, Diane Mitsch Bush is running for the seat in the 3rd Congressional District. John Hickenlooper is running for the Senate. Google them to learn where they stand on the environment, versus where their opponents stand. Then vote for them. The future of Colorado and our planet depends on it.
