Earlier this year, the Town of Basalt signed on to Eagle County’s climate action plan. Tuesday, Town Council is expected to sign a letter of intent to work with other communities in the county to reduce greenhouse gases. But Basalt isn’t going to commit any money toward the collaborative.

 

Environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy talks with producer Christin Kay about the details of how Basalt hopes to reduce emissions 25 percent by 2025 and 80 percent by 2050.
