Student Eco-Club activists work to spur faster action

From Suzie Romig, Steamboat Pilot and Today

In their last semester as Steamboat Springs High School seniors and Eco-Club co-leaders, Thomas Cooper and Margaux Shea are speaking out for faster climate action.

The two have taken part in commenting at City Council and congressional town hall meetings and will host the fifth official school climate strike later this week.

“Locally, our message is ‘we need to act as fast as possible to preserve what makes our community so special,’” Cooper said. “We are a global climate hotspot with almost twice the risk of warming as the rest of the world on average.”
