The reality of global warming and some innovative local responses

TIME Magazine made the reality of global warming the cover story of their April 3rd issue and The Aspen Skiing Company and Environmental Foundation Director Auden Schendler received kudos for their efforts in the "Climate Crusaders" section.

The whole Roaring Fork Valley probably deserved some ink given the work of the Community Office for Resource Efficiency, Solar Energy International, Rocky Mountain Institute, Rising Sun, Aspen Global Change Institute, as well as all the local governments in the region that have purchased wind power. Add Pitkin County's Renewable Energy Impact Program, Aspen's Canary Initiative, and Carbondale's Green Rec Center and TIME could put the whole valley on their next cover with the caption "Locals get serious about energy in a warming world."
