    Colorado Rising most likely helped elect several environmentally smart candidates across Colorado in the 2016 election. Colorado Rising's work to get out the environmental vote helped manifest a little-tour-de-force of 1,001,832 eco voters.
    Think of one of your favorite candidates or propositions that won. Was it Colorado Rising that made it possible?
    This coming election, I hope that Colorado Rising members call for a statewide oil and gas extraction tax. I hope this extraction tax prices carbon at a level that parallels the recommendations of the International Panel on Climate Change [IPCC].
    It would be sweet if this extraction tax is a fee-bate that returns the taxes to citizens and communities and that invest in carbon negative infrastructure and carbon capturing projects.
    The IPCC states that if we are to survive on this planet, carbon should eventually be taxed at $27,000 a ton. "To be or not to be", hmmm, how much do you think the extraction tax should be?
    No, Colorado Rising's call for a 2,500 foot oil and gas drilling setback from homes and waterways did not win.
    Yes, Colorado Rising's work helped push a blue - light green wave across Colorado to help slow down the Climate Change Monsters [wildfires, floods, hurricanes, droughts, heatwaves].
    This election, how 'bout we go for a big blue - deep green wave? ~ Stele Ely / XOEarth

    Visit Tom Steyer's action center today. https://www.tomsteyer.com/action-center A healthy democracy relies on sustained civic engagement. That means being ready to vote, but it can also be much more than that. Getting involved is easier than you think — you can do it right from home! You can make a difference by completing one or more small civic actions each day. With one month until the election, we challenge you to commit to 31 days of direct democracy and volunteering for important causes.
