What would we do without snow? Current climate projections indicate that many U.S. ski seasons will be cut in half by 2050, with my hometown of Park City losing all of its snowpack by 2100. It’s estimated that a single inch of snowfall is worth $2.8 million to the state of Utah. ⁣⁣Being worried about losing snow is understandable, but it’s time we broaden our worldview. People around the world are losing their homes and their lives because of climate change. This isn’t about what might happen in the future. It’s happening now. Wildfires are raging, earthquakes are worsening, entire species are going extinct. We need to look beyond how this impacts us and our community and leverage our collective voice for those who are being impacted now.⁣⁣Clean air, clean water and access to the outdoors are human rights. It’s time for us to wake up and speak up for the people in the world who are losing their homes and their lives because of climate. It’s time for us to elevate Indigenous voices who have been stewards of the land for time immemorial. It’s time for our leaders to wake up to the biggest crisis of our time and end our dependence on fossil fuels. ⁣⁣Our climate rally in Denver is tomorrow. We need everyone to show up and speak up. I can’t wait to hear from our amazing speakers tomorrow. If you can’t make it, stay tuned for a toolkit and more ways to get involved. ⁣⁣#ClimateRally2020Photo: @rob.lea
