COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY HOSTS CLIMATE EVENT ON SUSTAINABILITY AND CLIMATE ACTION
(Fort Collins, Co.) – On Thursday, April 14, Colorado State University and Defend Our Future will host a panel discussion featuring former Governor Bill Ritter, Environmental Defense Fund’s National Director of State Programs Dan Grossman, and Colorado State professor Dr. Ursula Quillmann about combating climate change. The panel, which will begin at 1:30 PM MDT, will discuss national and state climate policies like EPA’s Clean Power Plan, the first federal limits on carbon pollution from U.S. power plants. The panelists will highlight the great opportunity that sustainability and the Clean Power Plan present for Colorado’s economy. The event is part of a larger series hosted by Defend Our Future to empower millennials – like those at Colorado State – to drive action on climate change in their communities and their country.
