Act on Climate

Our farms and the economic activity they support – from quality, hand-crafted drinks to gourmet food and farmers’ markets rely on a sustainable and reliable climate.

I agree with the Colorado Farm & Food Alliance that protecting our farm, food and drink economy means we must act now to address climate change, in our own practices and through smart policy.

Climate change poses one of the gravest threats to the world’s food supplies, including our farms and ranches here in Colorado. And agriculture and our food system also make substantial contributions to the problem.

We must be part of the solution. We must prepare for climate change and be smart with how we use resources. We support policies that support a shift on how we power our farms, ranches, homes, and businesses; and practices that benefit the climate and build resiliency. We call for policy solutions that encourage these outcomes.

Healthy Land and Clean Water Statement

Healthy lands and clean water protect Colorado’s farms, food and drink. I agree with the Colorado Farm & Food Alliance that protecting our farm, food and drink economy should be a top priority in land use decisions, and when considering energy development on nearby lands.

Colorado’s quality ingredients depend on healthy land, sustainable farms, and a reliable supply of clean water, which is also key to our famous beers and award-winning wine and spirits. These lands and resources are incredibly important to our economy.

We must be smart about the needs of Colorado communities and our entire landscape by ensuring fracking and drilling do not harm our farms and ranchland, and must always prioritize the protection of our water.
