Overview

Last year, climate-related disasters caused $150 billion in damage to America’s economy. In Colorado alone, wildfires, drought, severe storms and other climate disasters cause more than $3 billion in damage on average every year, and effected large sectors of our economy, from infrastructure and property to public health and tourism.

While the risk is real and present, there are opportunities, policies and creative ideas being pursued by forward-thinking businesses, individuals, and governments. Smart clean energy and clean vehicle policies are creating jobs, driving innovation and economic growth while also helping blunt the growing economic costs of climate change.

Please join us and fellow local business leaders for an evening reception and enlightening discussion with state and local leaders to learn more about the economic costs of climate change – and the economic benefits of climate action – and how you can help advance policies to create a better Colorado. We will discuss the most important climate bill in history “The Inflation Reduction Act,” which is now under consideration by Congress. The bill includes critical energy security and climate change investments.

E2 Executive Director Bob Keefe, author of “Climatenomics: Washington Wall Street and the Economic Battle to Save our Planet” will also be on hand to discuss and sign copies of his new book, with sales benefitting the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
