Cheyenne, WY – Wyoming scientists say the state can't wait when it comes to stabilizing or slowing climate change. More than 40 scientists from the region have joined nearly 600 nationwide to urge Congress to be aggressive in reducing climate change pollution and restoring affected ecosystems. National Wildlife Federation biologist Doug Inkley notes Wyomingites are among the first in the country to see the effects of climate change.

"I used to spend a great amount of time up in the mountains in Wyoming, and already when you go up into those mountains, you are not seeing as much snowfall as you used to."

Inkley believes reducing climate change pollution is the easiest and quickest way to stabilize ecosystems. But critics argue such moves could hurt the state's oil and gas boom, and some still doubt that human actions are responsible for the planet's warming trend in the first place. Inkley challenges those folks in particular to do some research, and he says it doesn't necessarily have to be scientific.

"Just ask your neighbor who's lived in the same house for the last 40 or 50 years. It doesn't get as cold as it used to, the spring comes sooner, and the winter comes later."

The scientists' letter to Congress can be viewed online, at ww.nwf.org/scientistsletter.
