At the Wyoming Press Association’s annual winter convention, Gov. Mark Gordon called climate change the “single-most important issue on earth” and noted that “it’s critical for us and it’s critical for our world that we address” it.
It wasn’t the first time Gordon has touted the role the Cowboy State can play in the climate solutions field. In May he said: “We can take our coal products and we can make them part of the solutions.” At the event last week, he similarly noted that “Wyoming has an opportunity to solve this issue,” highlighting advanced technologies. “Only through better development of technology, the kind of stuff we’ve worked on for decades here in Wyoming, can we actually start to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.”
Gordon, who just took office last year, has one of the highest gubernatorial approval ratings in the country, according to Morning Consult.
