The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report Monday revealing, once again, the dire state of the climate crisis.
Joe Salazar, executive director of the environmental advocacy group Colorado Rising and former state House representative, was filled with familiar feelings of dread and anger when he read it.
“Reading the report, I had both a visceral, emotional reaction to it as well as a more logical way I reacted to it,” Salazar said. “The visceral reaction was me asking, ‘What the hell is it going to take for us to realize we’re in trouble. How many more reports is it going to take?’”
