Voters Should Be Prepared "In Their Minds Eye"

Mark Udall admitted yesterday that voters will have the dead and dying forests "in their mind's eye" as they go to the voting booth this fall:

"What we have to do it understand what our mountains are going to look like, prepared for that in our mind's eye, but then mitigate the threat from a die-off this catastrophic," he said

The legislature is busy these days with making a turtle the state reptile. "Colorful Colorado" is the state motto, but do we need to put dead forests in the minds eye of tourists? Let's have a motto that more clearly states our plight.

How about "High and Dry Colorado?" "Forest boneyard" might work. Thanks Mark, and thank Maggie Fox and the Sierra Club, too.
