Climate Action Plan
For The Eagle County Community
The Climate Action Plan recommends county-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction targets of 25% by 2025 and 80% by 2050. How can you help us meet this goal?
Our Mountain Community Is At Risk:
- Winters are getting warmer and shorter. There are now 23 fewer days with freezing temperatures than before the 1980's.
- Summers are getting hotter. With every one degree increase in temperature, we'll see a 3-4% decrease in water supply.
- Mountain ecosystems are changing. Scientists predict more extreme events - wildfires, droughts, and floods.
