Environment

For more than a decade, Cory has been a national leader advocating for commonsense energy and climate change policies that achieve results. He has increased our federal science agencies’ budgets, pursued an all-of-the-above energy strategy with investments in Colorado wind and solar industries, and led the fight to pass the most comprehensive pro-science legislation to clear Congress in nearly a decade, The American Innovation and Competitiveness Act. Cory has also been a key ally of the Colorado-based National Renewable Energy Laboratory and has gone to bat for them in Washington to make sure they have the resources they need to carry out their important work.

Environment

Cory has been a champion for Colorado’s public lands throughout his time in the Senate. He led the fight to permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund; he was instrumental in protecting Canyons of the Ancients National Monument; and he passed several bills that expand Colorado’s public lands. One of Cory’s proudest moments was winning the fight to relocate the Bureau of Land Management’s headquarters to Grand Junction. And he has even passed legislation that directs the Interior Department to study whether Camp Amache in Southeastern Colorado should be included in the National Park System.

From day one as senator, I will fight to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, enforce stricter standards on methane pollution and other harmful emissions, dramatically accelerate development of wind and solar energy, and reverse President Trump and Senator Gardner’s retrogressive and reckless policies.

Environment

Climate change is the defining challenge of our time, and our state is on the front lines of this crisis, with shorter winters, catastrophic floods and wildfires, and continued air pollution. While Colorado is playing a leadership role in the face of the Trump Administration’s destructive attacks on our environment, we must do more. Our planet’s health, economic well-being, and national security are all at risk. It is imperative that we address the climate challenges we face with a fierce sense of urgency — human lives and livelihoods are at stake.
