    According to a recent report by the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Rocky Mountain Climate Organization, over the past 15 years, tens of millions of trees have died across the Rocky Mountain region—victims of a triple-assault of insects, wildfires, and stress from heat and drought.  Global warming is the driving force behind these impacts.  If allowed to continue unchecked, it will dramatically reduce the range of iconic tree species such as aspens, piñons, and lodgepole pines.  The Union of Concerned Scientists and the Wirth Chair in Sustainable Development invite you to join us for presentations from expert panelists and a public discussion on the future of Colorado's forests.
