U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet likes to brag that he doesn’t read the Denver Post, but perhaps if he paid more attention to the media back home he might not have tweeted this:
Climate change costs jobs. Shorter winters already threaten Colorado’s $4.8B ski & snowboard industry and its 46,000 workers. #EarthDay

Not only did some resorts stay open later this year, but the state had so much snow in January, several mountains were closed to skiing because there was too much of the powder.
Climate change didn’t cost jobs, but too much snow meant some workers lost a few days of pay.
Tweet that, Sen. Bennet.
