Boulder Visit With Senator Whitehouse

CSTPR Director, Max Boykoff, with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.

On Tuesday, October 8 a small group of University, City of Boulder, and local leaders gathered for a productive conversation with visiting Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. During this past Congressional recess, Senator Whitehouse traveled to Colorado and visited us here in Boulder as he was interested in learning more about what we are doing at the University of Colorado, in the City, and in our part of the Front Range of Colorado. Senator Whitehouse has been working tirelessly over the past several years, working first-hand with scientists, policymakers, and state officials on how to most effectively address climate change.

The Center for Science and Technology Policy Research (CSTPR) within the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, helped facilitate the gathering with support from the University of Colorado Office of Government Affairs. Colorado was the 18th state that Senator Whitehouse has visited during short Congressional recesses. He has been motivated to pursue these opportunities as they provide him information to take back to Washington D.C. and talk with his colleagues about the threat of climate change happening today in various places.
