Speak up for Climate Science!
We are running out of time to solve the climate crisis. It is abhorrent that we still have two of our local elected officials in complete denial of the science that is indisputable, making decisions about our local energy generation when they are clearly completely unqualified to do so. Join 350 Colorado Springs at the first City Council Meeting of 2020 to speak up about Climate Science and address our climate denier council members.
