Taking Bold Climate Action & Protecting the Environment

Stolzmann Boulder Climate Action
  • Decarbonization: In Boulder County, we can and must lead the way on decarbonization. As Commissioner I will advocate to set an aggressive countywide target for becoming carbon neutral. Additionally, I will advocate to create additional incentives for community members to make transitions on things like electrification of buildings, adopting electric vehicles, and taking advantage of telework and reliable transit. We also must restrict oil and gas extraction to the maximum extent possible and proactively cap wells
  • Open Space: Nature is one of the things that makes Boulder County so special. We need to continue to be responsible stewards of our public lands and ensure that there are protected areas for habit and designated areas for recreation and enjoyment of the outdoors.
  • Climate Disasters: Local effects are unfortunately going to continue to increase. See Disaster Response and Preparedness section
