The Beehive State has done a 180 over where it was ten years ago.
In 2010, the Utah state legislature passed a resolution denying climate change. But that position started to unravel over the last few years, thanks in part to vocal advocacy by young voters. As a result, two years ago, Gov. Gary Herbert signed a resolutions acknowledging climate change is a problem Utahns must address. And now, “the largely Republican state legislature is embracing a climate policy ‘roadmap‘ (prepared by an economic think tank from the University of Utah) that includes emissions reduction targets.” ??????
As Rep. John Curtis continues his popular #CurtisClimateChat on Twitter (check out this LTE supporting his action) it’s clear that Utah has a huge EcoRight heart.
