If you’re really concerned about the environment, why do you have two monitors running while you’re turned away from them, filling the world with your own hot air?
For that matter, why are you using valuable global resources and creating more emissions by staging a protest in Denver instead of staying in Boulder?
Unfortunately, this is another case of parents hanging protest signs on indoctrinated children – the article states that
Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez, 11, of Boulder, is a leader of the Colorado-based Earth Guardian group and one of the plaintiffs named in the suit against the state of Colorado, Gov. John Hickenlooper, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission and the Colorado Department of Natural Resources.
This child with a tongue-twister name is actually the son (yes, son) of the woman who founded Earth Guardian. He’s only a leader in that he’s been passing out cookies since the group’s inception. He’s obviously not much of a leader or he’d be speaking for himself instead of having a white-man mouthpiece do the job for him.
And in other “Let’s smack Al Gore around news”…
The Boulder County lawsuit identifies specific environmental concerns as being tied to global warming and climate change, including reduced water flows, pine beetle destruction, massive wildfires, shortened ski seasons, frequent heat waves and more illness from insect-borne diseases. Xiuhtezcatl, in the lawsuit, states that climate change has affected his life.
Arapahoe Basin is STILL OPEN. They just announced that spring skiing conditions had arrived last week. Loveland had a near-record 567 inches of snow this season – their average is 400, and they were only five inches short of setting a record.
And don’t get me started on the pine beetles and wildfires. If we’d allowed forest fires to naturally thin the forests, the way nature intended, there would be good mixed growth and a variety of tree ages, which is the best way to combat a pine beetle infestation. Instead, we’ve stopped forest fires in favor of protecting housing developments that have cropped up in the midst of wilderness – the Gold Hill development that Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez lives in is a classic example of this.
