Colorado's Climate Plan
Governor Bill Ritter's goal is to reduce Colorado's greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050. Who knows if it will be achieved, but even if we can lower the emissions by only a small amount, it would be better than what's happening now. Here are some suggestions on how everyone can get involved: carpool, drive a hybrid, use compact florescent light bulbs, use low flow toilets and showers, and recycle. No one has to go Al Gore, but if everyone can chip in and do his part, it would significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. The first deadline is 20% by 2020. This plan may seem ambitious, but it is achievable.
