    It's sad to see that hundreds of scientists had to hold a rally in Boston this past weekend in support of science and to protest the anti-science rhetoric coming out of the Trump administration and other GOP lawmakers. Ever since the Reagan administration and the subsequent assistance of conservative talk radio and Fox News, science has been under attack for the sole reason that it does not agree with a particular GOP point of view.

    Scott Braden's column on Sunday, Feb. 19, about "a time for choosing" for Rep. Scott Tipton is a perfect example of liberal thinking. In the very first sentence he asserts that this Congress is off to a brisk start and are hell bent on transferring public lands back to the states and ultimately privatizing them.

    Earlier this week, I was invited to sit on a panel hosted by Conservation Colorado to discuss how tourism fits into continued efforts for clean air, land, and water efforts in our community.
