Environmentalists laud Gov. Ritter’s selection of climate change policy advisor

Environment Colorado

The following is a press statement from Matt Baker, Executive Director of Environment Colorado:


“Since 1990, Colorado has taken no serious action to deal with Climate Change. In that time our global warming pollution has increased by 39%, making us the fifth fastest growing source of global warming pollution in the country.


“Heidi VanGenderen is a great choice as the Governor’s climate change policy advisor. She has long recognized the high cost of inaction to stem Global Warming on Colorado’s water, people and economy. She is an advocate for solutions that protect the climate and strengthen our economy.”
