🔥FIRE NEAR ESTES PARK🔥

BREAKING: a wildfire has sparked on the southern edge of Estes Park in northern #Colorado

Strong winds are pushing the blaze and forcing evacuations.

@CBSDenver is on the way and will have more on CBS4 at 12 and on CBSN

A rare November wildfire has ignited near Estes Park (the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park) in Colorado. This time of year residents are usually gearing up for snow storms rather than evacuating from wildfires, but this is the reality of living through the climate crisis.
Mandatory evacuation orders have been placed in Kruger Rock and several of the surrounding areas, effecting thousands of residents. By this afternoon, the fire had grown to about 100 acres.

Cannot stress how bonkers it is that Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park that sits at more than 7,000 feet above sea level, is being threatened by a wildfire right now https://t.co/yb3rzZHG7b

These are both core team positions, full-time, with great benefits. If you’ve been wanting a career working on climate change, this might be your dream job. Currently is a weather service, so you’ve got to be a weather nerd.
You should understand how weather impacts every part of our lives and be able to see the world from the perspective of people systematically disadvantaged by the inequality that weather and climate change creates.
We’re a small team, and you’ll have an outsized opportunity to shape the direction of the company and make a difference in the world. The deadline for applications is November 30th. We can’t wait to work with you. Links to the applications are below. Feel free to email questions to info@tmrw.is

As the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal was signed into law, students across DC universities with @sunrisemvmt gathered on the capitol lawn to remind congress that:
#1 the bipartisan bill is NOT a climate bill.
#2 that the Build Back Better Act needs to be passed ASAP. https://t.co/R1KgjU1kMF
President Joe Biden signed the bipartisan infrastructure bill into law, on Monday November 15th. This bill funnels $1 trillion to upgrade roads, bridges and the transit system in the United States.
This bill is not the larger transformative climate bill that was promised, in fact some aspects of the bill will produce more emissions. It falls extremely short of meeting any meaningful emissions reductions. These issues are addressed within the Build Back Better reconciliation bill, which was originally tied to the infrastructure package. Build Back Better has an uncertain future and is still in the grips of Congress.
However, the infrastructure bill does address some key environmental health issues, such as clean air and water and cleaning up abandoned oil and gas wells. It is also making strides towards transitioning to clean energy and updating the transportation sector. And finally, the bill will invest funds into communities overburdened by pollution and the climate crisis. — Abbie Veitch
