Colo. local leaders urge action on climate change

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — Ski officials at one of the nation's most-visited resorts are calling on Congress to finish work on a climate-change bill.

Summit County officials joined representatives from the Breckenridge Ski Resort for a slopeside announcement Wednesday calling on the U.S. Senate to pass a climate change bill.

The House has voted to create a cap-and-trade system to reduce carbon emissions. The measure is still pending in the Senate.

The announcement came as Environment Colorado released a report arguing that Colorado experienced rapid growth in emissions from 1990 to 2007.

Colorado officials say global warming threatens the state's ski industry because of a pine beetle infestation and the potential for shorter ski seasons.
