Thanks to Mike Keefe for his July 7th editorial cartoon comparing hell with Colorado. The fire and fury in our forests gets worse every year. The health consequences of the wildfires burning in the state were emphasized in an article on page 4A the same day: “Unhealthy air blowing across Colorado.”

With an administration that denies the existence of global warming and an EPA that, despite the welcome exit of Scott Pruitt, is bent on dismantling any small steps the country has taken toward reining in our carbon footprint, we need an environmental revival as soon as possible. And it should start in Colorado before the great forests of the West are only a memory.
