"Somewhere in Colorado Springs, in the not-so-distant future, a hazmat-suited parent tries desperately to mend a tear in the foil roof of a makeshift shelter. A voice crackles on a shortwave radio, warning whomever is out there that another colossal storm is headed that way. A little girl narrates the dismal scene, wondering whether she will ever see the sunlight again.
This isn’t the plot of Hollywood’s latest sci-fi thriller. It’s the first 90 seconds of a new campaign ad for Andrew Romanoff, the progressive underdog in the Colorado Senate primary.
“This climate crisis is here now,” Romanoff told HuffPost in a phone interview last week. “People can turn away. But that’s not going to make the problem disappear. There are folks on Earth today who are living through this kind of hellscape.”
The video, set to be released online Monday, marks an escalation in a primary race that’s shaping up to be a showdown over how the Democratic Party plans to tackle the climate crisis. Yet, it has raised eyebrows from some climate experts who say the apocalyptic imagery may paint a misleading picture of what’s already a terrifying crisis, but may also prove effective.”
