The CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Resort, Andy Wirth has shown his backing for the Clean Power Plan being pushed forward by many in the positions of power within California. After news came through that local officials in Reno had vited in favor of the plan, Wirth published an op-ed in the Reno Gazette-Journal backing the decision of the lcoal officials. Wirth has quickly become a valued member of the Reno and Olympic Valley communities after he was appointed to the positions of President and CEO of the resort that acted as the hoe of the 1960 Winter Olympics.
Wirth links the use of dirty power sources with the many environmental problems facing California at the moment, including the drought and wildfires that are damaging the landscape. Wirth has himself volunteered as a firefighter and takes an actove interest in protecting the environment of the area in his business and personal interests. The many interests of Andy Wirth now include the completion of triathlon’s, which he began to undertake after a skydiving accident left him with life threatening injuries in late 2013. Now almost fully recovered, Wirth has taken on a more substantial role than ever before in his voluntary positions, which include being chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board.
The op-ed written by Andy Wirth shows the great understanding the former President of Steamboat Springs Winter Sports CLub has for the environmental issues facing California and the world as a whole. Andy Wirth believes the bsuiness leaders of California have shown the way for local government officials in adopting the Clean Power Plan, which he believes should be adopted immediately by all local authorities to change the way power is supplied. Clean power sources are required now, in the eyes of Wirth, who does not believe the world has time to wait for the introduction of the leatest clean fuels.
