Golden, CO – Climate change is not up for debate—the science is clear.  In May, 2013, a new study found that 97% of scientists agree that man-made climate change is a reality.  Furthermore, 70% of Americans believe that addressing climate change should be a priority for our leaders in Washington. As President Obama has said, a failure to address the threat of climate change represents a betrayal of our children and our children’s children.
OFA-CO volunteers, with other interested organizations and scientists, held a Climate Change Symposium to bring attention to the overwhelming agreement among scientists about man-made climate change.  People in Colorado are already seeing the impacts of climate change all around us.  We don't need to watch these increasingly dangerous effects continue to unfold to be convinced that climate change is real.  We must take action before it’s too late.
"Congress must act to reduce greenhouse emissions, promote clean domestic energy production, and provide key environmental protection to our communities," Congressman Perlmutter said. "I applaud President Obama's efforts to reduce carbon emissions, and I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to further combat global warming."
